Paediatric Dentistry

At CBD Dental, we love taking care of children’s oral health. From a warm and friendly welcome that helps little ones feel relaxed and calm to specialised paediatric dentistry designed to keep your child’s oral health at its best as they grow, we’re here to offer the best care for children.

Our children’s dentistry services include a comprehensive range of general dental treatments, including cleaning, diagnosis, extractions, dental x-rays, fillings, protective sealants and more.

The benefits of a children’s dentistry

Looking after children’s dental health as they grow and develop is vital for their healthy development. Here are a few key advantages of paediatric dentistry:

  • Maintain good oral health during childhood
    Preventing oral health issues from becoming more serious – through regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices at home – can help your child keep their dental health at its best and avoid dental pain and discomfort during their early years.
  • Establish good oral health habits for life
    Taking your child to the dentist regularly and educating them on the importance of good oral hygiene practices will help to set them up with positive health habits throughout their life.
  • Avoid dental problems as an adult
    The best way to reduce a child’s risk of developing oral health issues later in life is to visit the dentist regularly so problems can be addressed early. By combining preventative children’s dentistry with solid oral hygiene practices, we can help to avoid dental problems in adulthood.
  • Alleviate dental fear
    The earlier you start bringing your child to the dentist, the more comfortable and familiar they will become with the practice – making them less likely to develop a fear of the dentist and dental treatments during their childhood and later in life.

What does paediatric dentistry involve?

Paediatric dentistry – or children’s dentistry – refers to dental services and treatments provided to children under the age of 18. In most cases, your child should begin seeing a children’s dentist from the age of 2, in order to assess and maintain optimal oral health as they grow.

Paediatric dentistry services at our central Sydney CBD dental clinic include the following:

  • Dental examinations
  • Diagnosis
  • Cleaning
  • Scaling
  • Polishing teeth
  • Filling cavities
  • Extracting teeth under local anaesthetic
  • Taking x-rays of teeth and jaws
  • Applying sealants using remineralising therapies
  • Taking scans
  • Monitoring development of the teeth and jaws
  • Evaluating orthodontic conditions that need to be addressed with early intervention
  • Promoting oral health by providing education and information
  • Referring more complex dental problems to our panel of dental specialists and other health care providers

A gentle approach to paediatric dentistry

When we welcome children to our Sydney dental clinic, we want to establish a good foundation for the future of their smiles.

By approaching dentistry in a gentle and compassionate way, we can eliminate fears about the dentist, making it easier to incorporate regular dental visits into an overall health routine.

We avoid scary language, so your child never feels nervous about treatment. Instead, we describe treatment in terms that kids understand and educate them on the importance of good home care.

We understand that each child is unique, so we’ll recommend treatment based on your child’s individual oral health needs, as well as maintaining open communication with parents to ensure you’re well-informed about the status of your child’s dental health.

Our friendly and experienced dental team is here to take care of all your child’s dental health needs, so they can enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles – make an appointment today.
