Routine Maintenance with A Kids Dentist
A kids dentist provides routine maintenance to reinforcing good oral hygiene and dietary habits, and scaling & polishing. Kids dental care starts at TEETH @ Tiong Bahru Dental Clinic.
Benefits of Paediatrically-Trained Dentist in Singapore
The benefit of regular visits to the kids dentist is increased familiarity for your child to combat the potential for dental anxiety to develop. In addition to the verbal reinforcement of good habits, our scaling & polishing allows children to become accustomed to kids dental treatment.
Hopefully, further intervention will be unnecessary, but should it be required, this early acclimatisation to dental treatment will allow them to accept other treatments more easily.
Process for Kids Dental Treatment
Oral hygiene and dietary counselling are given verbally at our kids dental clinic, along with demonstrations on tooth brushing techniques. For young children, these instructions are usually for the parent as well as the child.
Scaling & polishing with ultrasonic and polishing equipment is mainly for older children. We use a combination of hand scalers and gentle polishing with dental apparatus in very young children. It is very important that every visit to the dentist is as positive as possible. Therefore we take our time and check in frequently with the child to ensure they are happy with the process.
Cost for Paediatrically-Trained Dentist in Singapore
The cost for a scale & polish for a child is from $64.20. This is not a reflection of the time spent, rather our hope in pricing this way is that the kids dentist treatment will be more accessible to our young patients.
We always encourage you to meet with our dentist for a consultation at our kids dental clinic and discussion of your particular needs and treatment costs.

Children's Dental Examinations
The most important part of our dental examination for children, especially for a first visit, is acclimatisation. The goal for this first visit is to make each child comfortable in the dental environment and to do only as much as the child can handle.
Kids Dental Fillings
Fillings are placed to restore teeth to function and appearance after trauma, caries removal or tooth wear. Fillings can be separated into two categories – silver coloured or tooth coloured. We no longer place silver coloured fillings at our clinic.
When teeth are crowded, or poorly aligned, orthodontic treatment can help to give your child ‘straight teeth’.
Root Canal Treatments
Root canal treatment is the process of removing and infected nerve while saving the tooth. It is not a treatment that is frequently needed in children, but is available should the need arise.

Kids Tooth Extractions
Kids tooth extractions is the treatment to take a tooth out under local anaesthetic. It is usually done because a child's tooth can no longer be restored, is too mobile for eating, or for orthodontic treatment.
