At Dartford Road Dental Centre, as well as offering a full range of cosmetic, general and orthodontic dental treatments to our adult patients we also offer a comprehensive, private dental service to our younger patients and always recommend bringing children in to see us from an early age, so that they can get used to the sights and smells of Dartford Road Dental Centre!
When looking after your child’s teeth, prevention is better than cure, so it is advisable for your child to attend our practice regularly for check ups so that any dental issues are identified and rectified early. We offer preventative treatments such as Fissure Sealants to help protect the surfaces of your child’s teeth, your Child’s Dentist will advise you if they feel this is something your child will benefit from.
Encouraging your child to eat healthily, opting for foods, snacks and drinks with no added sugar, is a great way to educate them about the importance of dental health for both their baby and permanent teeth. The nhs.uk/change4life website is a fantastic online resource to help parents and children make healthy choices to help improve their overall health and help look after their teeth.
Inspiring great routines with toothbrushing from an early age, will also help your child to accept oral health care into their daily routine. There are many downloadable toothbrushing sticker charts available online to help offer small rewards for your child’s toothbrushing efforts.
Regular brushing prevents the harmful effects that bacteria has on our teeth.
Overcrowding can be a cause for concern with a child’s teeth as this can make some surfaces of the teeth difficult to clean. We are lucky to have the wonderful Dr Hardwick, our specialist orthodontist on hand to provide orthodontic treatment to adults and children alike, to ensure your/your child’s teeth are straighter and easier to keep clean and healthy.
Our resident clinicians Dr Culverwell, Dr Patel and Dr Khaleel are also able to offer Invisalign treatments to help straighten teeth, with discreet aligners, please feel free to ask any member of our team for further information, we are always happy to help.
We often have offers on at our practice to make your looking after your child’s teeth even easier. Keep an eye on our website, facebook and Instagram pages for our latest offers!
