SPECIALIST DENTISTRY FOR CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS

Dental care during adolescence can pave the way for healthy teeth and gums for life; helping to identify and correct dental issues early on and preventing them from turning into bigger problems.

With fully qualified and AHPRA registered oral health professionals and dental therapists onsite, we provide professional dental care that’s easy, comfortable and as enjoyable as possible – even for anxious children. By giving children and teens positive dental experiences, we encourage them to have a positive outlook towards dental care throughout their lives.

Children and teens should have regular check-ups to make sure their teeth and gums stay strong as they grow. Your dentist can recommend the best care and preventative dentistry solutions to help.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants conservatively fill in the grooves in the back teeth, and help to prevent the need for dental fillings. We recommend them especially for children and teenagers whose adult teeth have recently come through.

By stopping food and plaque from catching the grooves and pits (fissures) of the chewing surface, fissure sealants create a smooth surface in the otherwise grooved and hard to reach areas, thus making teeth easier to clean. With less risk of food gathering in these spaces, there is less risk of plaque and acid build-up, which significantly reduces the risk of decay.

Having a fissure sealant put in place is easy, involves no injections, and allows you to eat straight away afterwards.

Ask your dentist whether fissure sealants can help protect your teeth.

Trauma and accident treatments

When mishaps can’t be prevented, knocked out, broken and chipped teeth can happen! If you or your child has an accident that results in any of these types of trauma, arrange to see your dentist immediately. The longer the tooth is left out or damaged, the harder it is to restore.

What to do when permanent (adult) teeth are knocked out:

  1. Find the tooth and pick it up by the crown (the biting surface). Try not to touch the delicate root.
  2. If the tooth is CLEAN, place it straight back in the gum if you can. If the tooth is DIRTY, wash for a few seconds in sterile saline (contact lense cleaner) or milk and then place it back in the gum.
  3. If you can’t place the tooth in the gum, place it in a glass of milk.
  4. Visit your dentist immediately.

What to do when permanent (adult) teeth are chipped or broken:

Allon

The All-on-4 ® treatment concept provides a permanent, screw-retained, same-day replacement for the entire upper and / or lower set of teeth. The procedure is best for patients with significant tooth loss or decay and for people whose bone loss in the jaw area prevents them from getting dental implants.
