Children’s Dentistry at Albany Place Dental Practice

Mother and baby brushing teethBy bringing your child to the dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts, they can learn healthy oral habits from the beginning of their life. At Albany Place Dental Practice, our gentle, friendly team is well-versed in providing dental services for children of all ages.

Starting Early

We recommend that you begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as you see them begin to erupt. A small, soft child’s toothbrush and water can be used. When they reach 18 months, you can use a fluoride toothpaste that they’re then able to spit out.

The many solutions we offer to our pediatric patients include:

  • Examinations and Cleanings – An initial visit for a child consists of an examination and cleaning to identify any potential problems. We focus on providing a positive experience that will help alleviate any nervousness your child may feel.
  • Dental Sealants – If your child is prone to tooth decay, these invisible sealants protect the adult teeth at the back of the mouth.
  • Fluoride Varnish – A high concentration of fluoride is applied to teeth, providing a coating that’s been found to reduce the level of tooth decay in primary teeth by an incredible 33%.

Nutritional Advice for Kids

You can make an extremely positive impact on your child’s oral health by considering their food and drink. We recommend that you limit sugary treats and carbonated drinks such as soda and juice. If consumed, it’s best to drink them from a straw, reducing the amount of acid teeth are exposed to.

Additionally, a diet with calcium-rich foods like milk, cheese and yogurt assist in neutralising acids, further protecting the teeth.
