Here are some benefits of children’s dentistry at Smiles in Currambine:

  • It keeps your child’s mouth healthy and free of tooth decay.
  • Dental issues can be prevented and corrected before they become serious.
  • Children’s dentistry can provide your child with training in developing healthy oral habits.
  • Teeth alignment can be monitored, and early intervention can be made to encourage the growth of straight teeth.

During your child’s first dental appointment, which typically lasts 30 minutes to an hour, a comprehensive oral health exam may be conducted. It may involve looking for symptoms of dental decay, polishing teeth, and removing plaque, tartar, and stains. In addition, the dentist will show you how to properly clean your child’s delicate teeth and gums at home by flossing and provide advice on the proper use of fluoride. Your child’s oral hygiene habits and diet, as well as how to prevent mouth injuries, will most likely be discussed by the dentist.

A good starting point is for your child to have their first dental visit before dental problems come up. We recommend that your child’s first dental visit be made by 12 months of age or within six months after the appearance of their first baby tooth.

Among the benefits of fissure sealants are:

  • They protect your child’s teeth from tooth decay.
  • The procedure is virtually painless.
  • They are long-lasting and can offer protection for your child’s teeth for 5–10 years.
  • They are easy to maintain and repair.

Here are a few tips on how to prepare your child for their first dental visit:

  1. Schedule the first dental visit for a time when they are most likely to cooperate and are at their most energetic. Children should get their dental care early in the day so that they are alert and not sleepy during the dental appointment.
  2. If your child is a preschooler or older, prepare them for their visit by explaining what they can expect. Encourage them to be excited about the visit by explaining why it’s essential.
  3. Dentists are frequently associated with negative feelings among children. Instead of using terms like “pain,” use positive adjectives like “healthy mouth,” “strong teeth,” and “caring for their teeth.” You might recount anecdotes about your own or other family members’ dental visits, emphasizing positive experiences while omitting negative ones.
  4. Allow your child to express their worries to you and listen to them. It will be easier for you to help if needed and reassure them that all is well if you know how they feel and what they’re thinking.
