Children Dental

Prevention is better than cure.

We value highly about dental education at a young age. From tooth brushing technique, diet analysis and making your children feel familiar at the dental chair. We encourage parents to bring their kids to the dentist from 6 months onward, so that we can pick up any signs of decay as early as possible to avoid any major treatment. We also educate you, the parents, the correct technique or strategies to motivate your kids to look after their teeth.

Child dental benefit scheme ( CDBS)

Call us to find out when is the next available appointment to book your kids back in for checkup or treatment. They are entitled to $1000 biannually. All our dentists and hygienists are patient and aim to establish a good rapport with your kids since they are young. “Prevention is better than cure” bring them in for a regular check up.

Stainless steel crown

When the decay is getting too deep and close to the nerve, our dentist might suggest to have a stainless steel crown to protect their baby teeth. Instead of having recurrent decay around the fillings, stainless steel crown can minimise the chances of needing the re-treatment of the same tooth in the next few years.

Custom made mouthguard

If your children play contact sports or activities, we highly recommend getting them a custom mouth guard because the cost of a mouth guard is much lower than fixing a broken tooth and the pain associated with the ulcers on their lips. We will use putty to take moulds of their teeth and fabricate the mouth guard in a local lab. Your kids can pick and choose the colour of the mouth guard that matches their team. Dental examination prior to mouth guard fabrication is essential because of the rapid changes of their teeth now and in the near future.

What does my first appointment involve?

Please arrive 10 mins earlier to fill in our new patient medical and dental history form, so that we can gather all the information before discussing with our dentist your chief concerns, which we will aim to address first. If time permits, our dentists will perform a thorough exam of your teeth and take some X-rays to make sure we identify all issues in regards to your oral health. We will then provide you with insights about your teeth and oral hygiene, and if required – discuss possible personalised treatment options with you, providing detailed explanations using visuals from photos and X-rays. We don’t just look after you today but we also plan with you for the next 10 years.

How often should I come in for a check up?

At Allenby Gardens Dental, we recommend our patients to come back twice a year to have a regular check up and clean. This can help us to identify problems early and treat the issue when it is easy to manage. It is also important to maintain the healthiness of your teeth and gum.

At what age should I bring my child to the dentist?

We recommend parents to bring their child in for their first visit when their first tooth has come through. This will allow the kid to get used to the dental environment and enjoy a ride in the chair. Our goal is to establish a comfortable and pleasant experience for the child and establish a good impression from a young age, so that we can help guide them towards looking after their oral hygiene together.
