Kids Dentistry – Panania Child-Focused Services
Our dental team in Panania NSW enjoy working with children and do all they can to make children’s dentistry at our Panania family dentists fun and educational. Parents are given advice on dental care as well as dietary and nutritional matters. We also show them fun ways of encouraging their children to brush and floss their teeth in order to prevent gum disease and grow up with a healthy confident smile.
Some of the latest technology, state-of-the-art equipment, and high-quality materials are used to provide a full range of diagnostic, preventive and restorative dental treatments and dental care for kids. These include:
- First dental visits
- Dental check-up and clean
- Tooth coloured mercury-free fillings
- Dental sealants
- Orthodontic dental care
- Nitrous oxide (happy gas) for anxious children
- Digital low-radiation X-rays
- Dietary and nutritional advice for parents
When should my child visit the dentist in Panania NSW
Our Panania dentist encourages parents to bring their children to our surgery for dental care before they reach their first birthday or when their first tooth appears. Decay and discolouration can start with a baby’s first tooth which is why it’s crucial that our Panania dentist monitors your child’s oral health.
Dentists are trained to detect the early signs of decay and provide preventive treatments to stop the dental disease from progressing. Premature loss of baby teeth can lead to crowding of the adult teeth and a need for orthodontic dental care.
Young children can sit on their parent’s lap during an examination which doesn’t take long, and our dentist in Panania NSW makes sure to reward them with a sticker.
If you’d like more information about kids dental care or kids dentistry at our Panania clinic in 2213 or would like to book an appointment for your child then please call 02 8806 0137 or book online. We look forward to meeting you and your family at our dentists in Panania NSW.
