Fun Dental Care for
Children!

There are times when parents are not sure how they can improve or maintain good oral health for their children.

At South Lake Smiles, we understand the importance of your dental health as well as your family’s. We know that it can be challenging to make the first dental appointment for your child, as there are many aspects you need to consider. It’s also normal to worry whether their initial visit may or may not be an unpleasant experience.
Our clinic offers affordable services, such as fluoride treatment. professional cleaning, oral checkups, cavity treatment, and children’s orthodontics.

Our Dental Services For Your Child

First Dental Visits

There is no set age for bringing your child to their first dental visit. However, dental professionals advise that you make an appointment once your child’s first tooth has developed. This usually happens around six to twelve months old.

It’s important to help your child feel secure and at ease during their first dentist appointment. Set their expectations ahead of time. You can do this by discussing how a tooth fairy’s friend will teach them proper brushing of their teeth.
The first dental visit is usually short and straightforward. Your child can sit directly in the dental chair or on your lap, depending on the situation. A dental checkup involves checking their teeth, gums, and jaw making sure they’re healthy. The dentist may also clean their teeth and will give an advise about proper brushing, gum care, and a nutritious diet.

Fissure Sealants

The back teeth (molar chewing surfaces) have deep and narrow grooves, making them highly susceptible to decay. As food can get stuck and plaque buildup may occur because these areas can be difficult to reach when brushing. Dental sealants are a painless way to protect your child’s teeth from decay. It covers the chewing surfaces of the adult back teeth. The sealant forms a strong barrier that keeps food and bacteria out of the tooth grooves.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Australian Dental Association suggests planning your child’s first dental appointment once their first tooth emerges. One reason is that when their teeth grow, they can be prone to tooth decay and cavities because of formula milk, eating candies or sugary drinks, especially for older kids. Being attentive to your child’s dental health will help them keep a healthy smile.

Visits to the dentist are made more enjoyable when the parents accompany their children. The best way to describe the dentist is in a positive, child-friendly way, such as by saying, “we’re going to visit the tooth fairy’s friend.”

Aside from checking your child’s teeth, gums, and other soft tissues in their mouth, the dentist will also review their general health. Other important notes may also be discussed:

  • Tips on brushing teeth.
  • Teething
  • Bite
  • Risk of cavities
  • Oral habits
  • Preventive plan for dental problems.
  • Proper nutrition

The Benefits Of Fissure Sealants

Fluoride in toothpaste and water does not easily penetrate deep grooves or pits. It may not even be possible for the bristles of a toothbrush to reach that far. In order to prevent children from developing cavities, dentists often recommend sealants. Both primary and adult teeth can benefit from fissure sealants to prevent cavities. Studies have shown that fissure sealants should be used in combination with other prevention methods to prevent dental caries in patients at high risk.

The Benefits Of Medicare Bulk Billing

Bulk billing means receiving the treatment at no cost. Our clinic instead accepts the CDBS or Medicare benefit as full payment for the service.
The Child Dental Benefits Scheme CDBS offers assistance for children’s basic dental treatments. This programme is a two-year coverage that costs up to $1,000.

The following procedures are covered by the CDBS:

  • Routine dental checkups
  • Professional cleaning
  • Tooth fillings

  • Tooth extractions
