Filling Options:

Our filling options include plastic resin (BPA free) and stainless steel crowns. Plastic fillings are a fantastic option for most children if the tooth decay isn’t too substantial. Stainless steel crowns are are a longer lasting option for more involved teeth or younger children who may struggle to sit still for long. Ultimately, we’ll recommend the best option for your child based on the extent of the damage and their age. We’ll also evaluate the habits that are likely to be causing tooth decay and teach you how to prevent future problems.

Fissure sealants are a thin white polymer coatings that fill the fissures (grooves) of the molars to protect the teeth from plaque and acids., Fissure sealants are effective in reducing the occurrence of tooth decay in hard to reach areas.

Comfortable Environment:

We understand that going to the dentist can be a daunting experience for many children and even some adults. To counteract this, our dental office environment is upbeat and friendly, and we do as much as we can to minimise the scariness of dental work for children. Some of the things we do to make the dental experience more enjoyable for children include:

  • Ceiling-mounted TV with their choice of show
  • Friendly clinicians who take the time to get to know your child
  • Taking breaks throughout procedures to ask how they’re feeling
  • Nitrous Oxide (happy gas)
  • Essential oil diffusion to remove the “dental smell”

We pride ourselves on making dental procedures as gentle as possible. This is especially important when working with children to instill confidence in going to the dentist and keeping their teeth clean. Naturally, all fillings and restorations come with a numbing agent unless requested otherwise.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
