Dental health plays a critical role in our overall
well-being. Ideally, good dental habits should commence from a very early age,
with parents actively encouraging children to understand and the benefits of
good oral health habits. Children
should be made aware that good oral health will reduce damage to their teeth
and gums over a lifetime. Brushing and
flossing are essential in maintaining sound dental health and as important as a
healthy diet and active lifestyle.
Even so, some children may experience dental health problems
at some point which will require professional care.
At Dental Suites, it is our pleasure to care for your child
from the eruption of their first incisors, through any times of distress or
soreness, until they receive their full complement of permanent teeth. We take delight in teaching them the correct
early oral hygiene habits, which will serve them well throughout their life.
Our experienced dentists are trained to identify early problems. These can include teeth misalignment,
missing or extra teeth and disturbances in enamel or dentine formation. Our dentist will then advise how each problem
can be dealt with in an effective and timely way. Milk teeth must remain in the best condition
possible to ensure that when the permanent teeth erupt, they do so in a
desirable and orderly fashion.
We understand your child may be fearful and nervous during
their first visit and we always do our utmost to make sure it's always a happy
and comfortable one. All of our
dentists have a great chair-side manner when treating children of all ages,
doing our best to make their experience a pleasant one. Our dental team will also show your child the
correct way to brush teeth and when explaining good oral health, use a language
they can understand.
