It’s important to maintain your children’s teeth as well as your own. Oral care for children should begin as soon as their first teeth begin to erupt, with their first visit to the dentist occurring once they have all their deciduous (baby) teeth usually around 24-30 months of age.
We encourage parents to bring their children along when they are having their regular check-ups. First visits to the dentist are made fun for the children – we take them for a ride in our special ‘chair’, count their teeth together and reward them for their bravery with stickers.
Six months later we encourage parents to bring their children back to the surgery for a thorough examination and polish of their teeth.
The main goal is to create a preventative mind set by seeing children at a young age and encouraging good habits by teaching both the child and parent the correct techniques of oral hygiene.
At Sunshine Family Dental, we are trained to offer caring treatment to children and teenagers between the ages of 4 and 17. They perform routine dentistry (i.e. fillings and extractions of baby teeth) where needed and refer appropriate specialist as required.
For all your child’s dental needs and enquiries please phone our reception staff on (03) 9312 0263. We are here to help your children keep their ‘Teeth for Life’.
