Preventative dental care is always the best way of ensuring a lifetime of oral health, and we believe bringing children to the practice from an early age is the only way to fully achieve this. Regular check-ups and appointments at Peach Dental Care will prevent dental decay, and the devastating effects this would cause to their growing dentition. Maintaining healthy teeth from a young age will prevent gum disease and decay, and will also teach children positive dental habits that will ensure their oral health lasts long into adulthood.
Our preventative treatments for children are designed to support the growth of strong, healthy teeth. Fluoride applications are a safe and effective way to safeguard growing teeth from developing decay and plaque, that left-untreated would cause lasting damage to the tooth’s protective enamel. The fluoride is carefully painted onto the teeth by our experienced dental practitioners, which helps to mineralise the teeth, helping them to grow stronger than if left untreated. Fissure sealants can also be used to prevent decay on children’s teeth. These are tooth-coloured applications that are applied to teeth used to bite and chew, providing the teeth with a shield against plaque build up and decay.
Treating children from an early age allows our dental team to watch and assess your child’s teeth as they grow, meaning that we can safely and efficiently spot early signs of underbites, crossbites or overbites developing. Through regular appointments, we can assess any need for orthodontic treatment early. The sooner we identify any potential problems as your child’s teeth grow, the sooner we can resolve them.
Our team at Peach Dental Care want everyone to have the best dental treatments with excellent service, but we know that not everyone enjoys the experience of visiting any dental practice. Studies have shown that the younger children start going to the dentist, the less likely they are to be afraid of visiting as they grow into adults. Our friendly team is dedicated to ensuring all of our clients have an enjoyable experience at Peach Dental Care, as we believe this is the key to developing a healthy and positive relationship with their lasting dental health. We always go above and beyond to treat young patients with care, putting them at ease throughout each of their visits to make them feel safe and comfortable, and happy to come back for their next check-up.
Frequently Asked Questions
Fluoride is a safe way of treating growing teeth, to prevent the development of tooth decay. Fluoride also helps to strengthen the enamel of the tooth decreasing your child’s chances of developing sensitivity. Strong enamel is essential for the growth and maintenance of healthy teeth, long into adulthood.
We can also prevent decay by treating your child’s teeth with fissure sealants. A thin, tooth-coloured layer of resin sealant should be applied by one of our certified dentists to children’s teeth as early as they erupt, to prevent food and bacteria from lodging in the molars and premolars. Build up of food and bacteria in these teeth is difficult to remove by regular at-home brushing, so fissure sealants are an essential treatment to prevent decay. They usually last around ten years, and we will always assess fissure sealants at every routine appointment.
Peach Dental Care prides itself on providing excellent client care, whoever the patient may be. That means our friendly team treat all our patients with kindness, making them feel safe and comfortable at the practice, and throughout their examinations and treatments. Whether young or old, we believe that everyone has the right to a positive, enduring relationship with their oral health, and so we go above and beyond to make sure all our young patients’ visits are as positive an experience as possible. Our dedication to our young patients means that they don’t mind returning to see us in the future, eliminating the fear of visiting the dentist.
