Children’s Dentistry

Dental hygienist with little girl in waiting roomAt My Dentist, we have dental professionals on-hand who are highly-trained in paediatric dentistry, treating patients from infancy, all the way up to teens.

Because our oral health journeys begin from the moment our baby teeth erupt, it’s important that even the littlest of patients receive the high-quality oral health care that they deserve from a young age.

Our kind and friendly team make visiting the dentist fun, encouraging children to have positive experiences whilst looking after their oral health.

Additionally, we are experienced in dealing with children who suffer from anxiety or nervousness when receiving dental treatment and are able to provide the gentle care they require.

Making Kids Welcome

We love our youngest patients and endeavour to make their first experiences at the dentist fun and welcoming. In our reception area, you will find a ‘Children’s Nook’ where kids enjoy a special area designed for them, with child-size furniture and fun activities.

Laser Tongue and Lip Tie Correction

A tongue or lip tie occurs when the frenum is too short, too thick or attached in the wrong place. It affects an infant’s ability to breastfeed and can cause issues during childhood as the child learns to speak, eat on their own and even results in problems with their bite. Once diagnosed by a thorough evaluation, a correction can be performed by releasing the tie with a medical-grade laser.

This quick and straightforward process does not require anaesthetics, medications or sutures. Light energy removes the tissue with no cutting necessary, and there will usually be an immediate difference in your child’s ability to breastfeed.

The Benefits of Early Check-ups

Did you know that your child should start visiting the dentist for regular check-ups at the age of two? Not only does this allow us to monitor their mouth, jaw, gums, and teeth during the crucial earlier stages, but it also familiarises your child with our office. This helps to prevent anxiety or nervousness as they grow older and encourages them to continue looking after their oral health.

It also means that our dentists can treat or prevent dental concerns as soon as possible, stopping them from turning into more complex (and therefore, more expensive) treatment down the line. Additionally, our team of dental professionals are dedicated to providing you and your family with the patient education and advice necessary to achieve optimal, lifelong oral health.

To make dentistry accessible for all children, we are also part of the following dental plans:

  • The Child Dental Benefit Schedule, which covers up to $1000 of selected dental treatments every two years for eligible kids
  • HBF 100% rebate on kid’s preventative dental up to an annual limit
  • BUPA 100% rebate on kid’s general dentistry
  • CBHS 100% preventative and sports mouthguards
  • HCF 100% preventative and sports mouthguards
