Here at Market Square Dental Practice, we are passionate about creating a positive association with the dentist and making your child feel safe and at home.
Tooth brushing alone is not enough to look after your children’s teeth and gums, which is why our team are happy to not only help guide families towards a lifetime of good oral health care, but also discuss diet and lifestyle habits. We can show you effective ways to clean teeth and gums and advise on sugar reduction and cutting down on snacks in order to reduce the risks of tooth decay.
Children’s dentistry is mainly underpinned by preventative care, which means bi-annual routine appointments, so any problems can be flagged easily. These appointments are also crucial in informing you and your child on how best to care for the health of their teeth and gums. Unfortunately, tooth decay is the biggest reason children under 5 are hospitalised. With this in mind, it’s important that you first bring your child in for routine appointments from a young age. Instilling good dental health habits will prevent the need for complex treatment down the line as well as removing the phobia of the dentist in adulthood.
We go that extra mile at Market square to offer educational and preventive paediatric dental care to suit all ages, from 0-18.
We also understand that sometimes a child’s anxiety or fear can put parents off bringing their little ones to see the dentist. So, to ensure our practice becomes their long-term and happy dental ‘home’, why not arrange to bring them with you next time you are booked in for a check-up so they are comfortable when it is their turn to sit in the chair? We will even let them sit on your lap whilst we count their teeth and show them the fancy gadgets we use!
For those children above 11 years old who is a little less confident, we offer in house dental sedation to make the appointment a happier and less stressful experience for them.
