Our Children's Dentist Can Help Create Beautiful Smiles for the Littlest Patients

While all people of all ages are at risk of tooth decay, children can be particularly vulnerable since they have not yet developed the necessary skills to brush and floss their teeth properly. Plus, they usually snack more often than adults, giving cavities more opportunities to form. As a result, they can experience a severe toothache, gum disease, and other problems that can affect their overall health. 

At Dentalcare of Forrestfield, we have children’s dentists who focus on preventative care to help your child avoid cavities and other problems. 

We believe in the importance of educating our young patients and their parents about good oral hygiene habits. So, we want to empower you with the knowledge and tools you need to keep your child’s smile healthy for years to come. Connect with us now to schedule an appointment for your child because prevention is better than cure!

Additionally, urging your adolescents to floss every day, eat a healthy and balanced diet, and avoid sugary drinks and snacks will help maintain their healthy teeth. You should also avoid putting your little child to bed with a milk bottle, as this can increase their risk of developing cavities. Ultimately, keeping up with routine dental visits and cleaning is key to maintaining a healthy teeth.

If your child is still sucking their thumb past the age of 4, this can cause problems with the alignment of their teeth. To help break the habit, you can use positive reinforcement by praising them when they don’t suck their thumb or offering them a special reward for going a certain amount of time without sucking their thumb. You can also gently remind them not to suck their thumb when you see them doing it. Additionally, special devices can be fitted to help discourage thumb suckings, such as a palatal crib or tongue-tie release. If you struggle to stop your child from sucking their thumb, we recommend talking to your dentist or pediatrician for more advice.

Dental X-rays are generally safe for children and an important tool that helps dentists detect dental problems early on. Additionally, modern dental X-rays use much lower radiation levels than before and are shielded to protect your child from exposure.
