Children’s Dentistry at Keilor East Dental Smiles

Preventative dentistry is essential for children, just as it is for adults. Introducing your child to regular dental visits from an early age is a pivotal step in fostering a lifetime of good oral health. At Keilor East Dental Smiles, we offer a comprehensive preventative program tailored specifically for children, which encompasses a variety of treatments and habits both at home and in our office.

Daily Oral Care Habits

  • Brushing and Flossing: Teaching children the importance of daily brushing and flossing to maintain oral hygiene.
  • Fluorides and Sealants: Application of fluoride and dental sealants to protect against tooth decay.
  • Regular Check-ups: Monitoring the child’s dental development through regular visits.

Additional Protective Measures

  • Sports Safety: Providing custom-fit mouthguards to protect children’s teeth during sports.
  • Nutritional Guidance: Educating parents on the right diet for optimal dental health.

Benefits of Preventative Dentistry for Children

Children with healthy teeth are able to chew food properly, which aids in nutritional absorption. Additionally, a healthy dental foundation helps children to develop clear speech. Engaging in preventative dentistry from an early age also minimises the need for more costly and extensive dental treatments later on.

What to Expect During Your Child’s Visit

During each visit, our dentist will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth and address any dental issues. Treatments such as fluoride applications, dental sealants, and the fitting of sports mouthguards are all part of our preventive approach. We are committed to guiding both children and their parents in combining home care with professional dental services to ensure a healthy, happy smile.
