Children Dental Care in Parramatta

Pediatric dentist or pedodontist are dentists who specialise in children dentistry. They are dentists who have completed additional studies and education on children’s dental care, which limits them to practice on treating children only. Due to their speciality, pediatric dentist Sydney can cost more than a general dentist. However they are very experienced and have child-friendly techniques to treat early childhood procedures. 

Children’s Dentistry at Parramatta Dentistry

At Parramatta Dentistry we also provide children’s dentistry, where our dentists and oral health therapists are experienced in treating children as well. Similar to pediatric dentists, our friendly clinicians use a soft approach technique to help kids feel comfortable and safe. We encourage our patients to start bringing their littles ones as soon as their first tooth has erupted. These early visits with parents to a dental surgery will allow them to be familiar with a dental environment. In addition our dentists and oral health therapists can demonstrate and explain good oral hygiene with the children and parents. This will lessen their chance of having dental anxiety in the future.

What Happens During Routine Visits?

Pediatric Dentist SydneyDuring the routine visits at Parramatta paediatric dentistry, we do a physical exam on the child’s teeth. This ensures that all the teeth are erupting in the right place and to inspect on their jaw and soft tissues. These physical examinations can check on any potential issues, where the dentist can monitor or take early measurements to treat the child such as braces if required. Other than monitoring the child’s jaw, bite and gum, the dentist can also check on any signs of tooth decay. A scale and clean is provided to remove all the plaque and tartar build up, as well as applying fluoride onto the child’s teeth to prevent decay. 

Our Parramatta dentists and oral health therapists can also show the little ones brushing techniques, as well as providing tips and guidelines to parents. Educating them early and introducing them to daily brushing habits are one of the main keys for good oral hygiene. Incorporating this with regular 6 monthly dental check ups and clean. The clinician’s are able to detect any signs of tooth decay and be able to perform the treatment before it affects other areas.
