Our knowledgeable staff at EDentist Dandenong has years of experience working with young children. Kids need routine dental exams and cleanings to avoid gum disease and tooth decay. While baby teeth eventually fall out naturally, kids with unhealthy teeth will lose them early–before the adult teeth start to grow in–putting them at higher risk for gum infections.
When you bring your children to EDentist Dandenong, our staff knows how to handle kids who are nervous or frightened when coming to a dental appointment. Our educated and experienced dental technicians use a gentle, slow approach during children’s exams and cleanings to build a trusting relationship. With this approach, more children view dental visits as enjoyable instead of daunting.
Taking early corrective measures for a child’s oral health helps them maintain healthy teeth as they get older. That’s why we strive to be the go-to children’s dentist in Dandenong. Kids need to brush their teeth twice a day to reduce tooth decay and plaque. Kids should use a toothbrush with soft bristles and fluoride toothpaste. If your child is younger than eight years old, help them brush their teeth properly until they have developed the dexterity to do it themselves.
While we know that kids love candy, cupcakes, and other sugary treats, healthy moderation goes a long way to supporting oral health. Also limit your child’s intake of sugary and acidic soft drinks, juices, and sports drinks.
At EDentist Dandenong, we do more for your child’s oral health than cleanings. If you’re worried your child will be anxious or fearful at their first dentist appointment, try telling stories and playing games with them that revolve around dentists and dental exams. This practice makes dentist visits normal and fun in your child’s eyes.
For the most accommodating and comforting children’s dentists in Dandenong, there’s no better choice than EDentist.
