We are committed to caring for children’s smiles and their overall dental health.
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 the advantages of looking after their teeth and gums.
We provide a safe, caring, friendly and highly professional environment for your kids, with patients being our first priority and we aim for a high quality painless experience.
Our aim is to provide the very best of dental care in a comfortable and happy environment.
We have seen many children grow to become young adults with healthy teeth at our practice, with minimal treatment needed.
The key is to visit from a young age, and we do everything make sure its a positive experience. – this makes them comfortable with the dental environment and our team, and is a great way to prevent any dental problems.
We recommend that children attend from the age of 2 and a half. At this stage they have almost all their baby teeth, and its time to have a ride in the chair at the dentist!
Questions Often Asked about Wisdom Teeth
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth, which usually happens when you are between 16 and 23 years of age. When there is insufficient gum space for normal eruption, these teeth become “impacted” – that is, they remain below the gum line, or not quite clear of it, because they cannot fully emerge.
Why do they need to be removed?
Impacted wisdom teeth can cause:
infection of adjacent gum tissue
dental decay of adjacent teeth
crowding of front teeth
(in rare cases) cysts.
When should they be removed?
It is well documented that removal of wisdom teeth in young adults (below the age of 25) is associated with less after-operation pain and swelling than in older adults. Therefore, if it is determined that your wisdom teeth are likely to cause problems, your dentist will usually recommend that you have them removed earlier rather than later.
Will I be awake or asleep during the procedure?
This will always be your choice, although recommendations will be made during your consultation appointment and your options will be assessed.
How much will it cost?
We will give you an itemised quotation during your consultation appointment. This will include an estimate of hospital and anaesthetic fees if required. You may then wish to contact your health insurance fund to assess your out-of-pocket expenses.
Are there any risks?
As with all surgical procedures there are general and specific risks associated with removal of wisdom teeth. Your particular risks will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
Protecting teeth when playing contact sports is essential, and a mouthguard professionally moulded to your own mouth shape and made to the highest standards can be the best protection.
Unlike ‘off the shelf’ mouthguards, custom mouthguards won’t slip or fall out of your mouth and don’t require any effort to keep in, leaving you to concentrate on your game.
We can fit you with a custom mouthguard quickly and affordably. We offer both adult and childrens’ mouthguards, and you’re welcome to make an appointment to come in so we can assess your need for a mouthguard, explain what’s involved and what the costs are likely to be.
