General Kids Dental Care in Kingsgrove
Encourage your children to develop a positive dental approach and a happier, brighter future with Kingsgrove’s Advanced Dental Practice.
We know how important a great smile is for a child’s confidence and we are passionate about educating children from an early age about how starting good oral hygiene habits early is crucial in ensuring a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Are your kids eligible for FREE dental care?
To help parents make sure their kids are given the best chance of a lifetime of bright smiles, and teach good oral health habits, the government offers the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), giving access to $1,000 worth of dental services over two years to each eligible child.
This means that your child’s dental appointments could cost you NOTHING.
And, it’s not just standard check-ups that the CDBS will cover; it can be used on a range of different services including: x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.
Is it time your child had their first visit to the Dentist?
It can be a nerve-wracking experience for both you and your child when it’s time for your little one’s first trip to the dentist. But, at Advanced Dental Practice we make sure your child’s first dental appointment is fast, easy, and pain-free.
Tips for a lifetime of healthy teeth
Healthy Eating – Cavity causing foods are those with a high sugar content. To reduce the risk of tooth decay it is important to reduce the total intake of sugary foods and the number of times sugars are eaten throughout the day.
Healthy Drinking – Children should drink plenty of plain tap water and limit the consumption of soft drinks, sports drinks, cordials and fruit juices, which generally have a high sugar content.
Brush Twice a Day – It is important for kids to clean their teeth at least twice a day with a gentle but thorough brushing action using a soft brush with a small head and fluoride toothpaste. Correct regular brushing will reduce plaque build-up and tooth decay and help maintain healthy gums and teeth. Up to age eight, kids will need assistance to brush correctly, as most children lack the manual dexterity to brush correctly before eight years of age.
Floss Daily – Children should floss between their teeth every day to remove food and plaque from the spaces between teeth where their toothbrush may not be able to reach and clean. Supervision and assistance from an adult is highly recommended to ensure that kids adopt a daily flossing routine.
Visit Your Dentist Regularly – The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children under 18 years of age should have their dental check-up every 6-12 months. Regular check-ups from an early age reinforce good dental care and assist in reducing the need for fillings in the future.
Wear a Mouthguard For Sport – It is important to play safe in all sports by protecting children’s teeth with a custom-made, professionally fitted mouth guard. Mouth guards are available in a range of colours, even team colours, and should always be worn when training and playing sport to minimise the risk of dental injury.
