At Wishart Family Dental we like to provide services to the little ones too! With services such as cleans, x-rays, fillings and much more. It is important to teach the importance of good dental health from a young age in order to avoid any complications that may arise in the future.
Your child may be eligible for the Child Dental Benefit Scheme ($1000 every 2 years) which Wishart Family Dental is happy to provide.
When to start?
It is recommended a regular cleaning routine should commence when your baby first begins to teeth however you should not use toothpaste until the ages of 2-3.Visits to the dentist should start at the age of 12-18months, or earlier if you have any concerns with your children's teeth.
What to expect at my child's first dental appointment?
It is often just an introduction to our team and practice, and we will be looking to ensure their gums are healthy and teeth are coming through straight. Also, we will monitor their jaw and facial bone structure for the development of alignment problems or crowding of teeth, as early diagnosis may greatly reduce the need for metal braces.
What are Fissure Sealants?
Fissures are natural grooves in teeth that are formed on the chewing surfaces of teeth. To avoid food getting trapped in these grooves a resign based material is placed on the tooth acting as a barrier.
It is a quick, non invasive procedure and plays an important role in preventing cavities from forming. Please feel free to contact Wishart Family Dental to make an appointment or if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's dental health!
