What is Unique About Children’s Dentistry?

Prevention and intervention are the most important dental services for any child. Dental checkups are a wonderful time to teach children how to care for their teeth and associate the dentist with a calm and positive experience. If future problems should arise, they will have the confidence knowing their appointment will have little to no pain while it remains stress-free.
 
We offer a friendly and clean environment where your child will feel safe before, during and after their dental visit. They can sit with you or enjoy the children’s play area with toys and books while they wait. We have a PlayStation to keep older kids happy and you can relax and observe them through the window while you enjoy a quiet drink.
 
The many benefits of children’s dentistry are also what makes it unique. Children who are familiar with the dentist have less fear and anxiety and more confidence in taking part in their oral health. Dr Zina and her experienced team provide the skills and education in a fun and unique way to protect your child’s oral health. Here are just some of the benefits that make paediatric dentistry unique:
Reduced fear and stress with dental visits for the child and their parents
Prevention of decay and cavities with regular checkups and education
Early detection of dental issues like cavities means easy treatment with less or no pain
If needed, your child’s teeth can be protected to avoid cavities
When left unchecked, crooked teeth can lead to worse problems, but early intervention can result in easier treatment options
Early dental intervention can prevent problems from worsening, which means you pay less for dental work
Regular dental checkups for children helps them remember the dentist is a safe and caring environment, setting them up for a lifetime of healthy habits

Get Ready for Your Child’s First Exam

Your child’s first dental exam is an important milestone in healthy development. We know you want your child to feel safe, which can reduce stress to you, so the following recommendations will help you help your child.
^
Bring your child in for dental examinations before their first appointment to allow them to become familiar with our office
^
Bring children in before dental problems arise to ensure they don’t associate the dentist with pain
^
Before their first visit, talk to your child and let them know you both will visit the dentist together
^
Explain to your child that they get to sit in the chair this time, while the dentist just looks around
^

Read children’s books to them about the dentist, such as Sammy the Centipede Goes to the Dentist before your child’s appointment

^
Allow them to bring their favourite book, toy and blanket for their first visit
^
If your child is fearful or anxious, let us know ahead of time so we can help
^
We are also experienced and ready to help children with special needs, so let us know ahead of time so we can ensure your child is as comfortable as possible
Approaching the first visit with a caring and calm attitude will go a long way to reduce stress. And once you are here, we will take over and make sure they have all they need to feel safe and secure.

What to Expect for the First Visit

Knowing what to expect can help both you and your child feel more comfortable during this all-important visit. Here is what you can expect:
If your child is very small or young, they may sit on your lap while the dentist simply looks around and possibly feels the gums
Dr Zina will determine your child’s teeth development and discuss any concerns with you
Dr Zina may recommend teeth brushing and cleaning tips
If it appears there may be an issue, x-rays may be taken, which are easy and painless
The dentist or hygienist may feel the jaw and cheeks for development or abnormalities
A hygienist may pop in and show your child how to properly brush and floss their teeth, in a compassionate and caring manner
Early childhood dental examinations are quick and often comfortable. It is time for your child to learn about the dentist and the visit while they learn to feel at ease in the dental office. Teaching children the importance of good oral hygiene at an early age will help it become second nature when they are older, which means less costly dental problems for you.

Paediatric and Children’s Dentistry

We accommodate children of all ages and are experienced with first appointments all the way through the teenage years. With music, games and a comfortable atmosphere, we can help make the dentist a positive experience for your children. And even early checkups might not prevent certain issues like crooked teeth, but don’t worry, we are here to help.
 
We offer braces and Invisalign to help children who need their teeth straightened. And when the need for these services is caught early, treatment time is shorter, with a lower cost. If your child has other needs like dental fillings or crowns, early detection makes treatment less painful. We enjoy working with our young patients and getting to know them, which helps us see problems when they first begin.

So professional and down to earth, both the dentist Zina and her teams of lovely ladies made me feel like a family member rather than a client. I must say Zina knows what she is talking about an expert, I won’t go anywhere else.
