Building Healthy Smiles for Our Youngest Patients

At Mary St. Dental Health, we understand the importance of early dental care and its impact on a child’s overall oral health and well-being. Our dedicated Kids Dentistry services are designed to create a friendly, comfortable, and fun environment for our youngest patients. We believe that positive dental experiences from an early age lay the foundation for a lifetime of optimal oral health practises. Our experienced paediatric dentists and friendly staff are specially trained to provide gentle and age-appropriate dental care, ensuring that your child’s dental visits are enjoyable and stress-free.

The Importance of Kids Dentistry

Early Dental Care

The early years are critical for establishing good oral health habits. Starting regular dental check-ups at a young age helps prevent dental problems and enables us to detect and address any issues early on. Our Kids Dentistry services focus on preventive care, education, and dental hygiene practises that instill good habits in children and set them on the path to a healthy smile.

Establishing Trust

We understand that dental visits can be intimidating for children. Our paediatric dentists are skilled at creating a nurturing and friendly environment to build trust with our young patients. We take the time to explain dental procedures in child-friendly terms and use gentle techniques to ensure your child feels comfortable and at ease during their appointments.

Monitoring Dental Development

Children's teeth and jaws undergo significant changes as they grow. Regular dental check-ups allow us to monitor their dental development and address any orthodontic concerns or dental issues that may arise. Early intervention can prevent more extensive dental problems and ensure proper oral development.

Preventing Dental Anxiety

Positive dental experiences during childhood can help prevent dental anxiety and fear in adulthood. Our Kids Dentistry services focus on making dental visits enjoyable and stress-free, which sets the foundation for a lifetime of positive dental habits and a positive attitude towards oral health.

Customised Treatments

Children have unique dental needs, and they may require specialised treatments. Our paediatric dentists are skilled in providing age-appropriate dental care, including dental sealants to protect vulnerable teeth from decay, fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities, and personalised cavity prevention strategies.

Frequently Asked Questions

The American Academy of Paediatric Dentistry recommends bringing your child for their first dental visit by their first birthday or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. Early dental visits are essential for monitoring dental development, providing preventive care, and establishing a positive relationship with the dentist from an early age.

Preparing your child for their dental visit can help ease any anxiety they may have. Talk to your child about the dental visit in a positive and age-appropriate way. Use simple language to explain that the dentist will check their teeth and make sure they are healthy. Reading children's books about dental visits or role-playing with a toy dentist kit can also be helpful in familiarising them with the experience.

Kids Dentistry at Mary St. Dental Health offers a range of age-appropriate treatments, including dental check-ups, dental cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride treatments, cavity prevention strategies, and orthodontic evaluations. Our paediatric dentists are specially trained to provide gentle and patient-centred care, ensuring a positive experience for your child.

Dental X-rays are safe for children when used in a controlled and appropriate manner. At Mary St. Dental Health, we use modern digital X-ray technology, which significantly reduces radiation exposure compared to traditional film X-rays. We also take extra precautions, such as using lead aprons and collars, to shield children from unnecessary radiation exposure during X-ray procedures.

Establishing good oral hygiene habits at home is crucial for your child's oral health. Encourage them to brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and to floss daily. Supervise their brushing until they have the dexterity to do it effectively on their own. Limit sugary snacks and drinks and encourage a balanced diet that supports healthy teeth. Regularly attend dental check-ups to monitor their oral health and receive guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene.
