Children’s Dental Care Frequently Asked Questions

My child only has their milk teeth, so do they really need to see a dentist?

Decay and gum disease can start from the moment your child’s first teeth appear. A recent study by the Faculty of Dental Surgery into the state of children’s oral health found that almost one third of five-year-olds have tooth decay, with an average of three teeth being affected per child. These children will potentially need extensive dental treatment.

If you bring your child along to see us for regular check-ups, we can help them to view oral health as an essential part of everyday life by teaching them how to keep their mouths fresh and healthy. With the right information and help, your children can stay filling free.

I’ve heard fissure sealants could stop my child from needing fillings – what are they and how do they work?

Fissure sealants are a safe and painless way to protect your children’s teeth from tooth decay. A fissure sealant is a plastic coating that covers the chewing surfaces of the back adult teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth. Most tooth decay in children occurs in the back teeth. However, no treatment is the best treatment - it is important to stress that cleaning and diet are far more effective at controlling decay. If fissure sealants are an option for your child, we will discuss this with you.

My child is anxious about visiting the dentist – what can I do?

Our advice to parents is to be very calm and matter-of-fact about attending appointments. If you need our advice or support with this issue, please let us know.

My child’s teeth are crooked – will they need braces?

When children’s adult teeth first begin to come through, they can be in the wrong position and gradually shift into alignment. In some cases, however, they may need orthodontic treatment. By seeing your child regularly, we can monitor how their teeth are positioned and ensure that you are given appropriate advice and information.
