Best Children’s Dentist in Melbourne

The rapid development of the mouth and teeth in children make it one of the most critical stages for dentistry in a person’s life. The Smile Designer offers comprehensive general kids dentistry and kids orthodontic solutions to help children get proper oral development and health. Our solutions are designed to address some of childhood’s most critical oral, aesthetic, and communications issues. As a highly experienced team of children’s dentists located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, we welcome you to bring your child to us to address all the impending and underlying issues of their teeth and oral development.

The First Kids Dental Care Visit Melbourne

During the first visit, our paediatric dentists will examine the development of your child’s oral structures. We will identify any impending oral issues that can affect your child’s oral health and development and provide treatments that can stop the problems before they appear. One of the primary goals of the first dental visit is to educate you – the parent – about the importance of your child’s oral health. This way, we ensure good oral hygiene and care and develop a proper diet for your child. The dental visit will also help your child get familiarised with the clinical environment that helps them understand the importance of oral health.

Regular Kids Dental Visits

We will advise you to bring your child every six months for dental check-ups upon the first dental visit. Monitoring the growth and development of children’s teeth, gums, and jaws at regular intervals can identify all oral-related issues, provide advanced treatments, and ensure that they get the proper oral development. Regular dental visits help us identify the flaws in your child’s oral hygiene standards, including the eating and drinking habits that can hinder oral health. Identifying dental issues early can prevent dental problems from becoming complicated, which often require complex dental procedures.

Professional Dental Cleaning

During dental visits, we complete professional dental cleaning that removes plaque, tartar, and other debris from the gums and jaws of your child. The least accessible areas of their teeth and areas Under the gumline often have deposits of plaque and tartar that can bring down their oral health and lead to gum disease. With advanced dental cleaning, we remove those deposits and ensure good oral health for your child.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is an essential mineral that supports teeth development and prevents the risks of dental cavities. If we notice that your child a high risk of developing dental caries and cavities, we will apply fluoride on the surfaces of their teeth. Fluoride can act as a protective layer on their teeth and make the enamel – the outer layer of the teeth – stronger with the application of the mineral at regular intervals.

Habit Counselling

Our Kids dentist Melbourne will observe the habit patterns of your child, including thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, nail-biting, mouth breathing, and provide you with tips and appliances to address these habits. All these habits can affect the proper positioning of your child’s teeth and jaw and lead to a range of dental and general health issues. Additionally, some of these habits can affect the personality of your child and create some emotional liability. As a team of expert kids dentist in Melbourne, we identify these habits early and provide permanent solutions.

Kids Orthodontic Treatment Melbourne

Our dentist will check the teeth alignment and create a pattern to identify early symptoms of orthodontic issues. This will help us to identify and correct the improper bites in advance. At The Smile Designer, we offer kid’s orthodontic services in Melbourne CBD that address most teeth aligning and biting issues during the developing stage. The early treatments help your child get straighter teeth and better oral health and avoid the need for complex, expensive orthodontic procedures later.

Nutrition And Hygiene Recommendations

Oral care and hygiene have the most crucial role in life-long oral health. Our oral examination will reveal the lapses in the oral care and hygiene of your child. We will teach them the right way of kids brushing teeth, how to clean teeth properly and the importance of flossing, and other hygienic and maintenance tips. Proper nutrition is vital for the growth and development of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaws. We will provide you with the right, balanced diet tips for oral development and advise you on food habits that can be detrimental to oral health. We will also offer helpful chewing tips and suggest healthy snacks for your child.

When should my child first see a dentist?

We recommend children first see a dentist by age on, as they start to get accustomed to the sights, and sounds of a dental practice. We guide parents as to the best way to clean their child’s teeth, and discuss factors that can affect their dental health as they grow. By ages 4 – 6, most kids visit the dentist for their routine hygiene visits. Parents are welcome to bring their child with them to their regular hygiene appointment to get them accustomed to the environment and our staff.

How often do my teenage kids need to see a dentist?

We recommend six monthly regularly hygiene visits for all children and teenagers. During the ages of 6-12, we will review their need for any preventative dentistry, and review the growth and eruption of all their adult teeth. Once all their adult teeth have erupted, we will give options to straighten their smile if needed, and maintain their oral health with regular maintenance visits.

What preventative dental solutions do you offer for my growing child?

Routine Hygiene visits are essential to review the health and growth of your child’s teeth and gums. During these visits, we can guide them as to their brushing technique as well as any dietary advice required. Preventative fissure sealants are routinely performed on adult molars that come through at both ages 6 and 12. If needed, dental imaging and x-ray’s are performed to review if there is any decay present in between teeth as well as the growth of the adult dentition.
