Children’s Dentistry

What is Children's Dentistry

We think it is important that the dentist show effective techniques to manage children’s dental visits and properly communicate with the child. It’s important to connect with the child so that they don’t feel uncomfortable and that the appointments are actually enjoyable.

Our dentists take care of your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth during the various stages of childhood; from losing their baby teeth to the time they get their permanent teeth, they need to be checked for possible decay or disease, but most importantly, childhood dental caries.

Preparing for a child's first visit

Preparing your child. It’s best for them if your appointment is in the morning and explain to them what is going to happen during the visit. It’s important that your child is engaged and excited to go, so they need to understand.

Preparing yourself. Talk to the dentist about your concerns and be aware of the attitude you have towards us because if you’re confident and calm, and it shows, your children will be perfectly fine. Offer moral support for your child, and in case they are frightened or cry, let them know it’s okay.

Preparing for the dentist. Provide the complete health history so that we can work effectively. Tell us if your child is stubborn, anxious or fearful, and we will be able to treat them properly.

Treatments for children

Infant oral health exams

They include risk assessment for caries to be sure everything is okay and your child’s teeth are healthy.

Fluoride treatments

Cavities form when the enamel of the teeth erodes, so it’s important to take care of their teeth getting fluoride treatments, which promote the remineralization of their teeth and prevent caries. Fluoride is also present in some municipal water, toothpaste, and even bottled water.

Cavities (caries)

Tooth decay is a disease that begins at a very early age. Bacteria react with sugars to create acid, which eats the enamel of the teeth and damages the gum tissue. In order to protect your child’s teeth, visit us regularly at College Gate Dental Clinic, and we will examine them.

Fissure sealants

They are thin coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, preventing tooth decay and thus caries in your child. It’s a treatment that defends your child’s teeth against pits and grooves that may otherwise form. They last between 5-10 years if they are taken care of, and they work perfectly fine along with a fluoride treatment.

Remind your child not to eat candy and to brush three times a day. If they get used to it from an early age, they will have fewer problems in the future.
