Children’s Dentistry

At Maven Dental Allenby Gardens, formerly Allenby Gardens Dental Centre, we love children and go out of our way to make them feel comfortable and welcomed in our practice. We make them feel special with groovy sunglasses to protect their eyes, rides up and down in the chair and of course, the very gentlest of treatments.

Little kids who are encouraged to come along to your appointments quickly become accustomed to our staff and the practice, and are usually ready at around the age of three to have their very first appointment. Our friendly and gentle staff will count your child’s teeth and check their oral health. As the child’s confidence grows the dentist will carry out a more thorough examination including:

  • Which teeth have come through the gum (erupted)
  • Assessing the development of the jaw
  • Looking at the soft tissues (tongue, cheeks, lips and throat)
  • Checking for cavities in the teeth
  • Assess how they bite together to check if orthodontics are required later on
  • Fluoride treatments if necessary
  • Fissure sealants if there is a high risk of cavities developing.
