Dental Treatments for kids.
Your child at the centre of attention.
In our practice we follow the recommendations of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, taking into consideration the individual needs, preferences and values of our young patients in consultation with their carer.
The foundation of our practice at Dental kids is preventive care and interceptive orthodontics.
Preventive Dentistry means a healthy smile for your child.
Children with healthy teeth learn to speak more quickly and clearly and chew more easily gaining more nutrients from the foods they eat.
They have a better chance of general health as disease in the mouth can endanger the rest of the body. A healthy smile also is more attractive giving your children confidence in their appearance.
Finally preventive dentistry means less extensive and less expensive care to insure your child’s happy smile (aapd)
We offer a preventive program based on your child’s individualized “caries risk indicator” to ensure that all our children will grow up with cavity free bright smiles. Tooth cleaning, polishing, fluoride treatments, sealants, mouthguards are all individualized to your child’s needs
At Dental kids we offer comprehensive orthodontic care for your children and teenagers to help them have a lifetime of healthy, attractive and confident smiles.
Finger and pacifier habits
Most children stop sucking on thumbs, pacifiers or other objects on their own between 2 and 4 years of age. However some children continue these habits over prolonged periods of time.
At Dental Kids, our paediatric dentist can encourage your child to stop as well as recommend you ways to support your efforts and can monitor any unwanted teeth and jaw changes and intervene when needed.
Early detection of orthodontic problems and treatment is advantageous to your child as it may prevent more serious problems from developing and make
Early treatment gives us the chance to guide jaw growth, lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth, correct harmful oral habits like thumb or finger suck, improve appearance and self esteem, guide permanent teeth into a more favourite position and improve the way lips meet.
A bright, attractive smile can profoundly affect their confidence and social life.
Orthodontic treatment is essential not only for aesthetic purposes. It is important because crowded or badly aligned teeth are hard to clean and may contribute to tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss. A bad bite can also cause uneven wear of tooth surfaces, difficulty in chewing and /or speaking, excess stress on supporting bone and gum tissues and possible jaw joint problems and headaches. Without treatment problems may become worse.
At Dental kids we offer comprehensive orthodontic care for your children and teenagers to help them have a lifetime of healthy, attractive and confident smile.
We use state of the art orthodontic appliances (brackets and wires) to shorten the length of orthodontic treatment. To avoid the difficult stage of “wearing braces” we offer clear brackets and wires.
