Our Comprehensive Children’s Dentistry Services

Paediatric Dentists

Regular Check-ups and Cleanings

Routine visits are essential for detecting potential issues early and ensuring children’s teeth are developing correctly. Our gentle cleanings also keep young teeth sparkling and healthy.
Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

As a preventive measure, dental sealants are a thin coating applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent decay. They’re especially beneficial for kids who are still mastering their brushing techniques.

Fluoride Treatments

To strengthen tooth enamel and reduce the risk of cavities, we offer fluoride treatments tailored for children.

Orthodontic Evaluations

Early orthodontic assessments can help in identifying and addressing potential alignment issues, often reducing the need for extensive treatments later.
tooth fillings

Tooth-Coloured Fillings

In cases of cavities, our tooth-coloured fillings restore the health of the tooth while maintaining a natural appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age should I schedule my child's first dental appointment?

We recommend scheduling your child’s first dental visit when their first tooth emerges or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. This early visit helps establish a dental home for your child and allows us to provide guidance on oral care from the outset.

How often should my child visit the dentist?

Just like adults, children should visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and cleanings. However, if there are specific concerns or issues, more frequent visits might be recommended.

What should I do if my child is scared or anxious about their dental visit?

It’s common for children to have dental anxieties. At Coastal Dental, we’re trained to handle such situations with care and patience. Before the appointment, you can prepare your child by speaking positively about the dentist, reading them dental-related children’s books, or even role-playing a dental visit at home. On the day of the appointment, our team will take over and ensure your child feels comfortable and understood.

Are dental x-rays safe for children?

Yes, dental x-rays are safe for children. We use modern equipment that emits minimal radiation. X-rays are crucial in diagnosing issues that might not be visible during a standard examination, such as cavities between teeth or issues below the gum line. We only recommend x-rays when necessary for the child’s dental health.

My child has a chipped or broken tooth. What should I do?

If your child chips or breaks a tooth, it’s essential to contact us as soon as possible. Before your visit, rinse your child’s mouth with water and apply a cold compress to the area if there’s swelling. Try to save any broken tooth fragments, as sometimes they can be reattached. At the clinic, we’ll assess the situation and provide the necessary treatment to restore your child’s tooth and alleviate any pain or discomfort.

We’re always here to support and guide parents on their child’s dental journey. If you have any more queries or need further advice, feel free to contact Coastal Dental. Your child’s smile and well-being are our utmost priorities.
