Brushing little teeth can be a challenge for most parents. However establishing good brushing habits early on is the best thing for making sure your child’s teeth stay strong, healthy and last a lifetime. We’re here to help offer advice and treatment to make your task easier and give your child a happy smile.
Fluoride varnish & oral hygiene instruction
Fluoride treatment is a safe and fun procedure for kids 🙂
It is carried out by our specially trained therapist Vickie and is ideal for introducing your child to a dental practice. The fluoride gel effectively makes the surface of the teeth more resistant to decay by working with the saliva to form a more protective mineral layer on the surface of the teeth. If your child has a high decay rate then they may need repeated applications over 3-6 months. Not only does this help to slow down the decay rate but the nicely flavoured gel and kid’s goodie bag is a really positive experience for little ones who might be fearful of coming to the dentist.
Vickie will also give preventative advice on brushing and diet during this appointment and an info leaflet will be included in the goodie bag.
The psychological impact of a fun and fear free first experience in a dental surgery cannot be underestimated and may well set up your child for a positive attitude towards dentistry for years to come.
