Dentistry for Kids

It’s important for children to learn about oral health and taking care of their teeth from a young age to ensure they develop good habits as early in life as possible. Fortunately, Chapel Gate Dental offers excellent dentistry for kids. We understand that visiting the dentist can generate fear and nerves, especially in children, which is why we make every effort to make their experience a comfortable and positive one. Whether you want your child to learn about how to brush and floss or you need advice on their newly erupting teeth, find out how our dental care for children can help.

Our Dental Services for Children

From general examinations and oral hygiene instruction through to interceptive orthodontics and restorative dentistry,we offer a range of dental services for children. You can rest assured that a gentleand reassuring touch will be used, ensuring their experience is as pleasant as possible and encouraging them to return well into the future for regular check-ups.

Our children’s dental care professionals can address common concerns and answer any questions you or your child may have. It’s never too early to start visiting the dentist, and we even encourage parents to bring their babies and toddlers to develop confidence, familiarity and understanding. As soon as a child turns two, it’s time to visit the dentist or dental hygienist for an oral health assessment.

What Happens On the First Visit?

Your child will meet their dentist and has an opportunity to get used to the high-tech chair. This consultation mainly involves a visual inspection to make sure there’s nothing unusual going on with your child’s teeth and gums. The dentist also counts the child’s teeth using a dental mirror. This is a fun game that we’ve found usually fascinates and entertains the patient while checking children’s dental health.

The dentist or hygienist will take time to answer any questions to create asupportive atmosphere, which is often accompanied by plenty of giggles for both the child and the parent. In addition to doing an oral examination, our dentist or dental hygienist can assess the child’s growth and development, as well as identifying any risk of dental decay and educating both the child and parents on brushing techniques and the importance of healthy nutrition for teeth.
