Children’s Dentistry

Kids’ Dentist in Springvale

For young children, going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience. Nevertheless, it’s important that they learn to maintain healthy dental hygiene habits from an early age. That’s why Springvale Dental Smiles endeavours to make the experience of seeing a kids’ dentist in Springvale one that’s enjoyable and free of anxiety or pressure. Make a booking now to see a dental specialist who takes a different approach to children’s oral care.

De-Sensitising the Experience of Going to a Dentist

Just as a child who learns swimming from an early age will likely show no fear of going into the water, the same approach applies with children’s dentistry. We recommend having your child see a dentist every six months from when their teeth first start breaking through. This not only allows us to check their progress at this early developmental stage, but it also normalises the experience of going to the dentist for the child, helping it to become a part of their health care routine.

Caring for Your Children’s Teeth at Home

For the rest of the time that you’re not in our clinic waiting room, it’s important to make sure you maintain optimal care of your children’s teeth − especially if they’re not at an age where they can manage it themselves. This includes:

  • Applying a sterile, damp cloth to your child’s gums as a means of keeping them clean
  • Using a small, soft bristled toothbrush with a small dab of toothpaste to begin cleaning teeth as soon as they begin to erupt
  • Brushing the teeth each night

For further tips on children’s dental care, our kids’ dentist in Springvale is more than happy to help.
