Deer Park Dental Surgery takes pride in creating and maintaining bright and healthy smiles for our young patients, in a lighthearted and fun environment.
Children’s dentistry, or pediatric dentistry, focuses on providing a child-friendly environment for infants, children, and adolescents who visit the dentist for checkups and treatments.
Our dental office uses state-of-the-art equipment, and we strive to make your child’s visit with us as pain and anxiety-free as possible. Here are a few of the reasons you should entrust your children to Deer Park Dental Surgery.
We provide effective and personalised dental treatments that suit the preferences and dental needs of the children.
We encourage parents to accompany their children during their checkup to be educated about the child’s dental state and to support them for the whole duration of their checkup.
Pediatric Dental Care
It is our goal to help your children achieve and maintain optimal dental health by teaching topics like brushing, flossing, and dental hygiene.
Start brushing your child’s teeth daily as the child’s first tooth emerges. Use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste when the child is old enough not to swallow it. Children should brush their teeth twice a day. We recommend you look after your child to make sure they are doing a good job.
With proper brushing, plaque from the inner, outer, and chewing surfaces of the teeth will be removed.
How to brush properly:
- Hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle.
- Place the toothbrush along the gum line.
- Brush the outer and inner surfaces of the upper and lower teeth in a circular motion.
- Don’t forget to brush the tongue.
Flossing is also important because it can remove plaque between the teeth, where the bristles of your toothbrush can’t reach. As soon as a child has two teeth, they need to start flossing. A parent should floss the child’s teeth until he or she can do it alone.
Parents are also encouraged to keep an eye on the children’s diet. Children should eat sweets in moderation and brush their teeth after eating to prevent food debris from sticking onto teeth.
Regularly visiting the dentist is important to keep children’s teeth free from decay. It determines if children require dental treatment.
