Children’s Dentistry at Willeri Dental

Just as it’s essential to take your child to the paediatrician for regular checks and physicals, it’s likewise important to take your child to see the dentist, starting around their second birthday. By familiarising your child with the dentist from a young age, they can know what to expect with routine dental care.

At Willeri Dental, we believe that beginning proper oral healthcare as early as possible can go a long way towards preventing small problems from becoming larger and more costly ones.

Topics We Can Address

Patient education is a big part of what we do. We educate both you and your child about the importance of the following:

  • Proper oral hygiene during pregnancy for you and your developing baby
  • Caring for baby teeth to foster good habits and to protect secondary teeth
  • Bringing in your baby for an initial visit and maintaining a proper oral hygiene schedule to prevent tooth decay from occurring in the first place
  • Addressing tooth decay, even in baby teeth
  • Fillings for baby teeth and the need for crowns, if required
  • Maintaining the space for a permanent tooth by maintaining space when a baby tooth falls out prematurely
  • Correcting any chipped or broken teeth
  • Special appliances that prevent your child from grinding their teeth while they sleep
  • Preventative orthodontics that can help to minimise the need for more extensive and costly future orthodontic care
  • How to have a pain-free, no-stress dental experience that will keep your child comfortable and relaxed
