All children are welcome to be treated under the NHS
We love seeing children here at the practice! It is essential that children develop good dental habits from an early age.
We encourage you to bring your children along to the practice as young as possible. Getting them used to the uniforms, lights, sounds and even smells of the surgery environment from an early age is crucial. Every child is different, some are more confident than others, but with regular non-intimidating visits all children will soon gain our trust and confidence. Few things give us more pleasure than watching a once reluctant youngster jump up onto the dental chair for their ‘ride’ with big smiles on their faces.
We often polish the children’s teeth if they are happy for us to do so- this gets them used to the sensations and noises of the instruments.
Sometimes it is advised that a concentrated fluoride paste is applied to young teeth, this can help ‘reverse’ early cavities or help strengthen a susceptable tooth surface.
Fissure sealants are plastic coatings that can be applied to the biting surfaces of deeply fissured back teeth to help protect them from decay.
