Great dental care starts early, and you can bring your child to visit our dentist in Greensborough as soon as they begin to get their milk or primary teeth.
Firstly, your child will get used to visiting the dentist.
Secondly, early dental care helps us detect problems at a stage when they may be easier to treat, as for example early orthodontics can take advantage of growth spurts during this time to guide jaw growth, possibly minimising or even eliminating the need for treatment in the future.
Thirdly, early dental care helps get your child into good oral health routines that can help prevent problems in the future.
If your child develops tooth decay then we can treat the affected tooth, hopefully saving it through removing the damaged area and filling the tooth.
If the decay has penetrated the central part of the tooth which is called the pulp, then it may still be possible to treat the tooth through carrying out a pulpotomy, a modified root canal treatment.
Ideally, we like to focus on preventative dentistry that aims to keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong and free from disease.
Preventative dental care consists of regular dental examinations combined with good home oral care and is the best and easiest way to protect your child’s oral health.
Many studies have linked poor oral health with poor general health, so it is important to make sure your child’s dental health is the very best it can be so they hopefully have healthy teeth for life.
