As experienced dentists and oral hygiene professionals, we understand that poor tooth health comes down to a lot more than dentist visits and teeth cleaning. We care about the long-term oral health of your kids rather than relying on fillings and procedures to fix problems as they occur. With every oral health check up on children, we’re focused on ensuring that any undesirable habits are being stopped at the start.
Things we look at and inquire about include:
- Jaw development
- Sleep habits – is there snoring or grinding?
- Mouth breathing habits
- Infant feeding habits
- Biting habits and alignment
We’ll obviously look at cleaning habits, but it’s also important to consider your children’s oral health in a holistic approach to minimise problems, costs and discomfort further down the line. Professional, Tailored Advice:
We’re here to provide tailored and professional advice, and to answer any questions you’ve got about your child’s oral health. For example, one common misconception is that baby tooth health isn’t of huge concern, because they just fall out anyway. This is untrue; having baby teeth fall out prematurely via tooth decay can cause crowding out and tooth development problems when adult teeth start to come in.
Our team are here to help, and we encourage all parents to ask us as many questions as possible, no matter how complex or mundane, to ensure healthy teeth for their children. If you’d like to better understand the complexities of some of the dental problems your child may be facing, we’ve got a small library of helpful books that parents are free to borrow and return.
