Preventative Dentistry

Children's Teeth

Our Dentists aim to prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date.

We are happy to see your child just as soon as they have developed their baby teeth. Getting your child gradually used to our environment will relax them if future treatment is required.

Children should be encouraged to look after their teeth from a very young age. Here's Dr. Ranj's top tips on looking after your children's teeth.

Make brushing teeth fun!

Fissure Sealant

Fissures are natural grooves / valley shapes found on the biting surfaces of the back teeth, permanent and baby teeth. Some people have 'deep' fissures meaning food/ bacteria gets stuck with greater ease causing a higher risk of decay.

Fissure Sealant and fluoride applications (tooth coloured sealants) are applied to biting surfaces of teeth to help prevent decay. By 'sealing' these fissures we add a layer of material so food/debris does not accumulate preventing decay.
