Here at Rosewood Dental Clinic, we love working with children and inspiring them to take an interest in the health of their smiles.
We recommend that you bring your child in for an appointment as soon as their first tooth erupts. The first few appointments will be to acclimatise your child with the dental practice environment and grow their confidence within this setting. As they grow older, we will continue to thoroughly examine your child’s smile and raise any concerns that we have with you. We’re here to support your child and help them care for their smile as they grow up.
Tooth decay is the no.1 threat to children’s teeth and continues to be the principal reason why children under 5 are admitted to hospital in the U.K. Another vital part of our role as your child’s dentist is to explain the risks of eating certain foods and providing healthy diet advice.
Educating and encouraging your child: we understand the roles, enthusiasm and encouragement play when explaining why looking after dental health is important to children. Our team are friendly, patient and enjoy building up a rapport with children, to make sure their teeth stay decay-free.
Tailored care for your child: we will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth and may suggest options such as fissure sealants or fluoride varnish if you’re child’s teeth are particularly susceptible to decay.
Keeping your child’s teeth healthy for life: regular routine appointments will ensure any problems are treated early, so your child can enjoy a healthy smile that they can feel confident about.
Monitoring the eruption of the adult teeth: aside from checking your child’s teeth for tooth decay, we check that your child’s adult teeth are all present and that they are erupting into the correct positions. This is to ensure your child’s teeth are straight and aligned correctly.
This is very important so that they have an attractive smile into their years as an adult. If we notice any missing teeth or problems with their alignment, we will provide the appropriate assessment, advice and intervention, in a timely manner so that these problems can be corrected at the most ideal time in your child’s development.Back to General Dentistry
