At Crown Street Dental Group we understand how important it is for your child to be relaxed and comfortable at dental visits. We endeavour to make your child’s experience with us a fun one, whilst teaching them how to care for their teeth.
At your child’s initial appointment, we will check their teeth, tongue and gums before educating them about how to look after their teeth. We aim to catch signs of tooth decay and gum disease in their earliest stages.
Patients in this age bracket are treated free of charge. At this stage, we will help you with the following:
It’s important to teach children at this age about the risk factors of tooth decay brought on by sugary foods and drinks.
At this stage, your child will start to lose their milk teeth and their adult teeth will begin to grow through. New adult teeth are vulnerable and will need to be checked for early signs of tooth decay. We will advise your child about how to brush their teeth, and give them healthy diet advice. We will also assess their teeth for fissure sealing in order to prevent cavities.
Between these ages, your child may need to wear braces. At Crown Street Dental Group we appreciate that teenagers need continued oral health education, as they are at a high risk of gum disease and dental decay. Hormone changes can cause inflammation of the gums, so your teen may benefit from visits with our hygienist.
At this stage of your teenager’s life, we will continue to educate them in all areas of oral health. We will also discuss with them the effects smoking and alcohol have on their teeth and gums.
At Crown Street Dental Group, we aim to help your child grow up with a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.
