What is Kids Dentistry?

Kids dentistry, also known as paediatric dentistry, is a specialised branch of dentistry focusing on the oral health of children from infancy through adolescence. This field is tailored to ensure the proper development and maintenance of children’s teeth, gums, and mouth.

Paediatric dentists, like our dedicated team at Coolamon Dental Centre, are highly trained to meet the unique needs of children’s dental health in a welcoming and comforting environment.

What to Expect at Your Child’s First Visit

We understand that a child’s first dental visit can be a little daunting, both for the young patient and the parents. At Coolamon Dental Centre, our goal is to make this experience as enjoyable as possible. We’ll take the time to introduce your child to the dental environment, familiarising them with our tools and dental procedures in a playful manner to alleviate any fears.

Dental Check-Up

During your child’s first visit, our experienced paediatric dentist will conduct a gentle and thorough dental examination. This examination allows us to assess your child’s oral health, identify any existing dental issues, and monitor the growth and development of their teeth and jaws.

Oral Hygiene Education

We place great emphasis on educating both children and parents about proper oral hygiene practices. Our paediatric dentists will provide practical tips and guidance on brushing, flossing, and diet choices that promote good oral health.

Empowering your child with knowledge fosters a positive attitude towards dental care and lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Preventive Treatments

Preventive dentistry is a key component of our approach. Depending on your child’s specific needs, we may recommend preventive treatments such as dental sealants to protect their molars from cavities or fluoride applications to strengthen their tooth enamel and reduce the risk of decay.

Discussion and Consultation

We value open communication with parents and encourage you to share any concerns or questions you may have about your child’s oral health.

Our paediatric dentist will discuss the examination findings, treatment recommendations, and any further steps required to maintain or improve your child’s dental health.

Scheduling Future Appointments

Regular dental check-ups are vital for maintaining optimal oral health in children. Before you leave, we will work with you to schedule future appointments for your child.

Consistent dental visits ensure that we can monitor their oral health, address any emerging issues promptly, and reinforce positive dental habits.

Frequently asked questions

We understand that as parents, you may have curiosities about your child’s dental health and well-being, so we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to provide you with valuable insights and answers.

At what age should I schedule my child's first dental visit?

It is recommended to schedule your child’s first dental visit around their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth erupting, whichever comes first.

This early visit allows the dentist to monitor the growth and development of your child’s teeth, address any concerns, and provide guidance on proper oral care habits from an early age.

Regular dental check-ups from a young age help in establishing a positive relationship with the dentist and lay the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health.

How often should a 5-year-old go to the dentist Perth?

For most children, it is recommended to visit the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings every six months. However, the frequency of dental visits may vary depending on your child’s individual oral health needs and any ongoing dental treatments.

Some children with specific dental conditions or a history of dental issues may require more frequent visits for monitoring and preventive care.

What should I do if my child is afraid of going to the dentist?

If your child is afraid of going to the dentist, choose a paediatric dentist who specialises in working with children. Communicate positively about dental visits, practice at home, and schedule their first visit early. Be supportive during appointments and offer small rewards or praise for good behavior. With time and a positive experience, many children can overcome their fears.

Are dental X-rays safe for children?

Yes, dental X-rays are generally safe for children. The amount of radiation exposure from dental X-rays is minimal, and modern X-ray machines are designed to limit radiation exposure. Additionally, dentists use lead aprons and thyroid collars to further protect children during X-rays.

The benefits of dental X-rays in diagnosing and treating dental problems outweigh the minimal risk of radiation. Your dentist will consider your child’s age, dental health, and individual needs before recommending X-rays.

If you have concerns, feel free to discuss them with your child’s dentist to ensure you make an informed decision.

Everyone working at Coolamon Dental are so helpful & friendly. Dr. Gen is so patient with me knowing I am terrified of going to the dentist. The ladies in reception put you at ease as soon as you come in the door. They are so friendly & have a laugh with you which helps when you are so nervous. The dentist explains everything that's going to be done so there are no surprises. The rooms are absolutely spotless. I now don't mind going to this dentist. Can highly recommend Coolamon Dental.

Shaun and Jenny were fantastic.
I came in for a toothache and they were able to fit me in. I'm a nervous patient and Shaun did an amazing job of calming my nerves and explaining the issue and options and then sorted the problem with minimal discomfort.

I'll be back for regular checkups!

The staff here are all very friendly and helpful. The dentist was gentle and thoughtful. As I'm in a wheelchair he and his nurse were also very helpful. I recommend this practice and will go to them in the future.
