Children’s Dentistry

Jetty Road Dental Clinic is a family-oriented practice, and we always welcome children, treating them gently and with compassion as if they were our own.

Our entire team will go out of their way to help your child feel comfortable and create a dental home for your child where they feel comfortable and relaxed. However, if your child is a little apprehensive at the thought of seeing a dentist, please talk to us. There are several things we can do to help make their visit is more enjoyable.

How Soon Should My Child See a Dentist?

When possible, we like to see children when they are still very young, preferably soon after getting their first one or two teeth. While this may seem very soon, it’s the ideal chance for a child to start becoming accustomed to a new environment and to begin getting to know us. In addition, it’s your opportunity to learn more about your child’s dental care so that by working together, we can help your child grow up with a healthy, confident smile.

Focusing on Preventing Dental Problems

Many common dental problems are avoidable with the right dental care, and our child-oriented dental services focus on preventive dentistry. Available treatments include regular checkups where we can monitor your child’s dental health closely and clean their teeth professionally. Professional fluoride treatments help to strengthen teeth, so they are less prone to cavities. Fissure sealants are another good treatment for preventing tooth decay. Mouthguards help protect your young athlete’s teeth and jaws, preventing or minimising the risk of damaging their mouth.
