Our dentists will help to identify the level of risk for cavity development and other oral health diseases in infants, children and adolescents.
We offer a variety of braces options, including metal or ceramic braces, as well as Invisalign®. Children with mispositioned teeth or bite, if detected early, can be corrected with simple braces/ removable braces without going through the traditional bracket braces. The earlier these issues are detected and corrected, the faster the treatment completion.
Prevention is better than cure. As such we will customise treatment modality to help prevent cavities development in your child.
Good eating habits and food preferences are established early in childhood. Poor diet can lead to poor health, obesity and even tooth decay. Our dentists educate kids on the importance of diet in oral care.
These have been proven to prevent tooth decay, strengthen the teeth as well as prevent tooth sensitivity.
Sometimes the deep grooves and pits on the child teeth tend to trap food and plaque. Normal toothbrush bristles may not remove the trapped food and plaque effectively. As such sealants can seal and cover these deep grooves.
A child should first see a dentist when his/her teeth first erupt. Treatment may not be necessary at such a young age, but it is always good to start acclimatising the child to regular dental treatment early on, to ensure there is no fear of dental treatments later on. In addition, proper oral hygiene and preventive measures will be taught to you so you can prevent dental problems for your child as they grow up.
Early dental visits allow the child to form a relationship with his/her dentist, and to form a habit of good oral hygiene from a young age. In addition, many young children suffer from early childhood tooth decay, or tooth decay caused by milk bottle, which can result in the child needing multiple fillings or extractions. This is an easily preventable condition which the dentist can teach you to protect your child from.
Dental treatments can be expensive and can deter some from scheduling regular visits to the dental clinic for their child. However, starting dental care early is critical, to prevent problems from occurring later in life that might require more complex and costly solutions.
