Parents of young children often wonder when it is appropriate to bring them to the dentist for the first time. At LN Dental Centre, we recommend seeing kids for the first time around the age of three.
Our Chester Hill, NSW surgery is family-friendly and that extends to your children. Our team has experience putting youngsters—as well as their parents—at ease during dental appointments. Studies show that when children go to the dentist regularly when they are growing up, they tend to continue that good habit as adults.
We invite you to call and book an appointment for your child.
Patient Education for All Ages
We understand the importance of patient education at our dental clinic, so you can make informed decisions about your oral health. When you bring your children in to see us at a young age, we can ensure that you know how to keep their teeth clean and healthy.
Early dental visits mean we can address issues that might pop up, including tooth decay, thumb-sucking and teeth grinding. It’s best if we can break bad habits early, before they have an impact on permanent teeth.
Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist
From the moment your child walks through our door, we want him or her to be relaxed and calm. Our office environment was created to make everyone comfortable—regardless of age.
We know the sights and sounds of the dentist’s office can be a bit scary for youngsters. The first visit to our surgery is primarily to help kids see that there is nothing to fear here. Building trust with the dentist from an early age will not only help alleviate any anxiety your child might have, but it will encourage a healthy relationship with the dentist as they continue to grow up.
When kids come in, we will help them learn how to take care of their own teeth with our specialized care. Good brushing and flossing habits that start early will keep their smiles healthy for many years to come.
Preventive Care for Children
Some kids are more prone to tooth decay than others, and this is why we offer preventive measures such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants. These non-invasive procedures are not painful and require no shots or drilling, and they protect against cavities.
Fluoride treatment will help teeth stay strong and healthy and resistant to dental decay. Dental sealants are applied to the back molars soon after they erupt. The sealant serves as a physical barrier, keeping food particles from collecting and bacteria from taking hold in the deep grooves of those teeth.
Creating a Positive Dental Experience
We look forward to meeting you and your children so we can provide the best in dental care for our patients of all ages. Call our Chester Hill, NSW dental clinic today to book an appointment.
