We’ve always believed children should have access to the very best dental care, that’s why we’ve offered NHS dental care for children for over 30 years!
We encourage parents to bring children for their first visit from a young age and take great pride in making sure not only their first visit, but every visit after will be a pleasant experience. We believe that this way we can help children care for their teeth better, reduce the amount of dental treatment needed in the future and prevent dental phobias from developing.
We focus a lot of attention on preventative dental care, and this is never more important that with our children patients. During your visits with us, we will discuss the importance of diet, fluoride, oral hygiene and regular dental visits as well providing emergency and general dental care if needed.
Your dentist may recommend fissure sealants to you or your child. Teeth natuarally have dips and grooves on the biting surfaces to help chew food, these are areas where food can get caught and may be difficult to clean, especially in young patients, and over time are common places for decay to start.
A Fissure Sealant is a coating that is placed over these grooves to prevent decay from occurring.
