Preventative Dentistry for Children

Prevention is at the heart of everything we do, including when it comes to our littlest patients. Working with children, and their parents and carers, from an early age to prevent tooth damage and decay means they can enjoy a lifetime of confidence in their appearance and a healthy smile. Children with good oral health learn to speak faster and more easily, and can absorb more nutrients from their food as they can chew properly.

We recommend that a child’s first visit to the dentist comes around the time their first tooth comes through. Our experienced and friendly team can help you and your child learn the best ways to look after little teeth and gums, including good brushing techniques using an age-appropriate fluoride toothpaste, and guidance on the sugary foods and drinks to avoid while young mouths are developing.

We also make sure that every appointment is fun and relaxed, so your child always feels comfortable to attend the practice as they get older. We provide dental treatments for children that can help to prevent problems in the future, such as sealants to protect against decay, and mouthguards for sports.

The care and treatments are always excellent, I am always given time to ask any questions. The girls in reception are always so pleasant and cheerful.
