Pediatric dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is a very gentle method of treatment which aims to make a visit to the dentist a more comfortable experience for your children. We have purpose built area specifically designed to make your children feel relaxed and at ease.

The Children’s Dental Center is dedicated to encouraging as many children as we can reach, to adopt good habits in dental hygiene. To this end, we offer reduced fee dental services to underprivileged children. We do our utmost to create an atmosphere of positive reinforcement making the children as comfortable as possible throughout their visit. Although the center would like to offer its services as broadly as possible, it is necessary to establish eligibility guidelines pertaining to prospective patients.

Children's teeth begin forming before they are even born. The first primary,or baby teeth, to erupt through the gums are the lower central incisors. These are followed closely by the upper central incisors which come through around four months after birth. Although all twenty primary teeth have usually appeared by the time the child reaches three years old, the pace and order of eruption varies from child to child.

Oral care should begin soon after birth. Gums should be cleaned after each feeding. You should begin brushing your child's teeth as soon as they appear.
Permanent teeth start to come through around the age of six. This begins with the first molars and lower central incisors. This process continues until approximately age twenty-one.

Adults have twenty-eight permanent teeth, or up to thirty-two including the third molars (wisdom teeth).

You should always clean your infant's gums after feeding. Gums should be wiped with a clean, damp cloth or gauze pad. Parents should brush children's teeth daily with a soft wet toothbrush and a pea sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Schedule a dental visit between 6-12 months of age. When children are very young it is necessary to supervise their brushing to ensure proper brushing habits are adopted.

Your dentist will probably recommend regular fluoride treatments which will strengthen enamel and help your child’s teeth resist decay. You should provide your child with fluoridated water and always use an A.D.A. accepted fluoridated toothpaste. 

To prevent your child suffering from nursing bottle mouth, you must give your baby a bottle at nap or bed time. Fill the bottle with plain water and not milk, formula or juice.
Dental sealants can provide a further layer of protection against cavities. They are plastic coatings which are painted onto the grooved chewing surfaces at the back of the teeth.
