A Long-Term Solution for Your Child’s Dental Health
Here at Hills Dental Design, Dr Srinivas and her team encourage families to bring in their children for an oral assessment from as young as 3 years old. This gives your child a chance to become familiar with the practice and also allows us to assess different elements of your child’s smile. We endeavour to not only treat your children’s dental health but to develop a long-term solution for their oral development. We pride ourselves on creating treatment plans that ensure your little ones develop and maintain healthy smiles throughout their lives. This includes (but isn’t limited to):
During your child’s visit to our Pennant Hills dental office, we will not only provide a general check-up but will track the progress of your child’s jaw development and take not of any concerning oral habits that may be arising.
Your Child’s Health Could Be at Risk
Have you noticed your child exhibit conditions like:
Problems such as these may impact your child’s oral health and dental development. By laying the ground work from a young age, Hills Dental Design can ensure your family has all the dental advice and treatment options available under the one roof. This is also important because it gives us the chance to build a long lasting doctor and patient relationship, reducing the risk of dentophobia later in life.
Preventative Dentistry for Children
Tooth decay is the most chronic disease for children even though it is considered highly preventable. Protect your child’s smile with fissure sealants. Fissure sealant appears as a clear coating that is placed along the biting surface of the teeth to prevent tooth decay. Most commonly, we suggest fissure sealants for the back teeth as they are harder for your child to brush. Permanent back molars usually erupt around age 6 and again at age 12. Because the back teeth have deep grooves, food can easily become trapped within the crevices. Fissure sealants cover the grooves, protecting the surface from decay.
Custom designed to fit the tooth and jaw arrangement of the wearer, our mouth guards available at Hills Dental Design provide a close fit. These dentist administered mouth guards have a range of benefits and are highly effective in protecting the wearer during contact sports. We are committed to providing a healthy future for your child’s oral health. Give your child the best chance to have a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. Contact us today!
