Childrens Dentist

Children need excellent dental care too in order to keep their teeth healthy…

At Duncraig Dental Care, your childrens dentist in Perth, we understand how important it is for children to have excellent oral health as they develop, because it not only sets the standards for their future oral health and development but it contributes to the development of their bodily growth, respiratory system, digestive system and communicative skills. Our team are dedicated to helping children understand how important their teeth are and establishing a healthy dental relationship with them in order to convey this importance. We often help parents and their children find fun ways to make oral hygiene and dental care second nature for them.

Baby teeth can create the foundations of your future oral health…

One of the most common misconceptions is that because baby teeth fall out and are replaced by adult teeth, they are not important. On the contrary, these teeth are the starting point for your child’s oral health and should be considered imperative to your child’s overall health.  As baby teeth erupt, they help children develop basic oral mobility skills such as talking and eating, and they also help shape the jaw so that the child can begin to eat solid foods and create distinctive sounds that we recognise as speech. The best age to bring your child in for a dental check-up is around the age of seven or when their first tooth erupts. This is so your child can meet our friendly dentists and get used to being around a dental clinic, as well providing an excellent opportunity for our team to monitor the development of your child’s teeth. Duncraig Dental Care is a family and children orientated dental clinic and we understand that introducing your child to dentistry can be a daunting experience but our friendly staff are here to make sure your child feels safe and secure while in our care. After all, it is essential for your child to associate good health and wellness with dental care so that oral hygiene can become second nature to them.

Duncraig Dental Care is here to help if your child is experiencing oral health problems…

Children are not exempt from oral health problems and quite often children can develop tooth decay and minor gum disease. Often one a common part of being a child is enjoying candy, sugar and chocolate however unfortunately these things can be extremely damaging to teeth. Sugar can be an incredibly erosive substance and if left on the teeth it can turn into plaque. This plaque can cause even the healthiest teeth to become exposed to decay. In the event that your child is experiencing tooth decay Duncraig Dental Care offers fissure sealants, which is a white, durable dental material used to fill in the crevices and fissures in teeth to prevent further tooth decay.
