Plaque can start to form on young teeth as soon as they emerge, and it’s important to implement a good oral health routine early – starting with that first tooth. Prevention is always better than a cure, and regular check ups at Mulgrave Dental Centre for your child are invaluable for halting tooth decay and gum disease, maintaining a bright smile into adulthood.
At your child’s appointment, our dentist will examine your child’s teeth and gums for any problems. There are a number of preventative treatments that our team can provide for children. Fluoride applications are a safe and effective way to safeguard your growing child’s teeth from developing decay. The fluoride is painted onto the surface of the child’s teeth and this helps to mineralise the teeth. Fissure sealants are tooth coloured and applied to biting surfaces of children’s teeth to prevent decay. Our Hygienist, also sees children as private patients and helps educate children about good dental hygiene.
