Why Children’s Dentists Are So Important

Lots of people think that children don’t need to see the dentist until they’re older. After all, their baby teeth just fall out. But we’re on a mission to rectify this misconception. The earlier we begin to care for your child’s teeth, the greater the chance of preventing dental decay.

 

As well as keeping an eye on how their teeth are doing, we can help them understand how to look after their teeth and how important it is to practise top notch oral hygiene.

We’ll talk to them about how to clean and floss, as well as how often these things need to be done and why they’re so important. Having expert input takes the pressure off the primary carer and gives your child the chance to ask questions of a dental professional.

What Happens At The First Children’s Dentist Appointment?

The first appointment is all about getting your child used to visiting us and helping them feel at home.

 

We’ll count their teeth, check the condition and if we need to, we’ll give a professional clean. We’ll finish the appointment by talking through what we’ve found, and what the next steps should be including the importance of daily cleaning.

What Happens If My Child Has Challenging Behaviour?

At Albany Dental, we understand that children have many different types of behavioural challenges. We are experienced in working with children who have anxiety, or who have been diagnosed with ADHD or autism.

 

We will work with you and your child, and any other health professionals to make it possible for them to complete their treatment in as comfortable way as possible. We’ll make things fun where we can, and we’re always careful to keep things accessible and easy to understand for everyone involved.

Our goal is for your child to reach a point where they look forward to visiting us, so we take things steady and take our time to make sure they feel comfortable and confident.
