Best Children’s Dentist in Melbourne
The rapid development of the mouth and teeth in children make it one of the most important stages for dentistry in a person’s life. The Smile Designer offers comprehensive general kids dentistry and kids orthodontic solutions to help children to get proper oral development and health. Our solutions are designed to address some of the most critical oral, aesthetic, and communications issues in childhood.
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.
Yes. We will review the health and growth of your children’s teeth as they erupt. We will provide options and costs and guide you as to the right time to start your child’s Orthodontic Journey. We offer Fixed Braces as well as Clear Aligner Solutions. Please visit our kids Orthodontic page for more information.
During the first visit, our kids dentist will examine the development of the oral structures of your child. We will identify any impending oral issues that can affect the oral health and development of your child and provide best pediatric dental care treatments in Melbourne that can stop the issues 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 in addition to developing a proper diet for your child.
The dental visit will also help your child to get familiarised with the clinical environment that helps them to understand the importance of oral health.
Upon the first kids dental care visit at our Melbourne clinic, we will advise you to bring your child every six months for dental check-ups. The monitoring of the growth and development of teeth, gums, and jaws of children at regular intervals can identify all oral-related issues, provide advance dental care for kids, and ensure that they get the proper oral development.
The regular kids dental care visits help us to identify the flaws in the oral hygiene standards of your child – including the eating and drinking habits that can hinder oral health. Identifying dental issues at an early stage can avoid dental issues from becoming complicated, which often require complex dental procedures.
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 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 is an important mineral that supports teeth development and prevents the risks of dental cavities. If we notice that your child has high risks 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.
Our paediatric 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 at the early stages and provide permanent solutions.
Our pediatric orthodontist 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 to get straighter teeth and better oral health and avoid the need for complex, expensive orthodontic procedures at later stages.
The oral care and hygiene have the most important 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 care tips.
Proper nutrition is important 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 for oral health. We will also provide proper chewing tips and suggest healthy snacks for your child.
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.
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.
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.
It is very important to visit your dentist before, during and after pregnancy. We understand that the first few months after pregnancy is a very important time, and things will get quite busy for you. During pregnancy, it is important to take extra care of your teeth and gums. There are risks of dental erosion due to reflux, as well as an increased chance of developing gum disease.
So while pregnant, make sure you are brushing and flossing daily, practicing good oral hygiene as well as having a health and balanced diet. And yes, visit our team at The Smile Designer Dental Studio’s to maintain your six monthly hygiene visits.
As we age, it gets more important to make sure that we are visiting the dentist regularly. The aim is to keep our existing teeth for as long as possible. Our team will help maintain the health of your teeth and gums, and provide information and advice on how to better look after your oral health. We offer a range of solutions too
