Routine Maintenance

In children routine maintenance involves reinforcing good oral hygiene and dietary habits, and scaling & polishing.

The Benefits

The benefit of regular visits to the dentist is increased familiarity to combat the potential for dental anxiety to develop. In addition to the verbal reinforcement of good habits, the scaling & polishing allows children to become accustomed to 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.

The Process

The oral hygiene and dietary counselling is given verbally 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. In very young children we use a combination of hand scalers and gentle polishing with the dental apparatus. 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.

The Cost

The cost for a scale & polish in 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 treatment will be more accessible to our patients. We always encourage you to meet with our dentist for a consultation, 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.

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.

Orthodontic Solutions

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.

Routine Maintenance

In children routine maintenance involves reinforcing good oral hygiene and dietary habits, and scaling & polishing.

Tooth Extractions

Extraction is the treatment to take a tooth out under local anaesthetic. It is usually done because a tooth can no longer be restored, is too mobile for eating, or for orthodontic treatment.
