Paediatric Dentist Melbourne VIC

How Does Children’s Dentistry Differ from Adult Dentistry?

We all have different dental needs at various ages, and during childhood the focus is largely on preventative dental care. At this stage in life, we try to ensure children grow up with healthy teeth and gums by providing a range of preventative dental care treatments combined with good oral hygiene education.

Our dental team very much enjoys treating children especially as this is the ideal age to instil healthy habits that we hope will last a lifetime. We do everything possible to help anxious children relax and our practice has a range of child oriented videos to help keep them entertained. Our children’s dentistry treatments include:

  • Regular check-ups
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Fissure sealants
  • Oral hygiene education
  • Mouth guards

We will also identify any possible orthodontic problems in children as young as age 6, as often these can be more easily treated with the use of early interceptive orthodontics. Regular check-ups are particularly important and are the perfect opportunity to get a young child used to visiting the dentist.

Everyone here is particularly gentle when treating young children and special needs children and we go out of our way to try to ensure every visit is a pleasant and positive experience. Our friendly dental team are always more than willing to talk to parents or caregivers about dental care so please just ask if you have any questions regarding your child’s oral health. You can call us on (03) 9419 7022 or visit us 3/55 Victoria Parade, Fitzroy Victoria 3065.
