Early attention to oral hygiene can ensure your child’s mouth remains healthy, and having regular dental checkups are as important as an annual physical exam. Our team of experienced dental clinicians here are Sure Dental in Brisbane are here to help ensure that your child has a positive and stress-free dental experience with preventative and proactive dentistry.

Easy Early Check Ups

Bringing children to the dentist at an early age is important for lifelong oral health. That’s because early intervention can help avoid cavities and catch tooth decay and other oral health problems that can cause pain or medical issues. As frightening as this may sound, early childhood dental visits can be a very positive experience.

Dental visits for younger children are generally easy, consisting of the examination, cleaning and a possible fluoride treatment. Bringing children at a younger age helps them become accustomed to the dentist, which helps reduce anxiety as they learn what to expect with a dental appointment. In actual fact most of the children at our practice get excited about their appointments and love coming in!

Reducing anxiety is just the beginning of the many benefits you and your child will experience when taking advantage of early childhood dental visits. Here are more benefits that you will enjoy:

During a general checkup, our dental clinicians will pick up any abnormalities early, help ensure that teeth are arriving in the correct order and that enamel development is on track

By bringing in children at a young age before cavities or other dental problems occur, your child will learn that a dental visit is not associated with pain

Early dental checkups will help avoid future dental anxiety for both you and your child

Early detection of dental issues often means you save money and less problems for your child

Early detection of dental problems can allow you to plan for future orthodontics or other possible scenarios

Early interception for teeth straightening means less time children have to wear orthodontics, meaning less cost to you

If your child does need braces, early interception may allow for less invasive options like Invisalign, which can save you money

Full Mouth Examination

 

During your child’s dental visit, we will perform a full examination and evaluation of your child’s teeth and overall oral health. Here are some things we take into consideration:

Z

Breathing history

Z

Sleep quality

Z

Speech function

Z

Tonsil health

Z

Facial bone development

Z

Teeth alignment

Oral health affects all of these areas, and early intervention can ensure you get an early start on a path to healing. During your child’s dental examination, we will discuss your child’s health history and any concerns you may have including the future development of your child’s teeth. 

The dental visit will help you know what to expect and how to be proactive with your child’s oral health. You will also have the opportunity to address common parental concerns such as teeth grinding, snoring, thumb sucking and speech problems with an expert clinician.

Planning for the future is important for any parent, which makes regular dental visits even more important. With early dental checkups, you can keep up with the health status of your child’s teeth and learn if there is a possibility of future problems. You will feel confident knowing your child’s oral health is our priority and you are doing all you can to ensure they have a beautiful smile for life.

A Learning Experience

We believe that children enjoy learning and we strive to make the dental visit a positive learning experience. During a dental visit, our dental professional will have an opportunity to talk to your child in an amusing and kind way about oral hygiene.

Your child will learn the importance of daily brushing and flossing along with proper technique. We also help them understand how diet, like too many sweets, can affect their teeth.

Our Sure Dental team know that childhood dentistry sets up your child for a lifetime of excellent oral health. Because of this, we strive to ensure your child enjoys their visit every time as we guide parents through each developmental stage.

Your Child’s First Visit

Your child’s first dental visit is important to us, and we want to make it as stress-free as possible. We suggest bringing your child as soon as they have all their teeth, and before any dental issues arise, if possible. This will help make the examination easy with no pain.

We want your child to feel safe in the dental chair, and we understand that the first visit will be an opportunity for you and your child to get to know us. We can use the first exam to simply look around evaluate your child’s oral health, while your child enjoys a magic dental chair ride and toys, providing an optimal experience for you and your family.

Before the first visit, many parents like to do all they can to be prepared, and there are some things that you can do to get ready. Here are some fun tips that can help your child feel at ease before their first dental exam:

Read children’s books about dental visit to your children, such as The Tooth Book by Dr Seuss

Bring a comfort item for your children such as their favourite blanket or stuffed animal

Be casual and let your child know it is simply a dental examination where the doctor will just look

Do not mention needles, shots or pain, as this may sound larger and frightening to a child

Always use positive language when discussing the dentist

Bring the child to one of your checkups, if possible

Inform the dentist if your child is apprehensive, stubborn or defiant so we can help

Plan an after-visit reward for your child so there is something to look forward to
