Regular check ups are very important for young children as decay can progress at a faster rate and children are often not good at recognising the signs and symptoms of a dental problem. Without regular check ups, a small cavity or a little bit of demineralisation can progress unhalted to a full blown dental problem requiring the pulp to be cleared out and a stainless steel crown to be placed.
Also, bringing your children in regularly familiarises them with the staff and the dental environment so that if there is a problem that needs to be treated, it is a much less traumatic experience for all concerned.
At Homebush Dental Practice, we will evaluate your child’s level of development and cooperation and tailor our check ups and treatment appropriately. We will also reinforce good oral hygiene habits and ensure your child’s teeth are being cleaned effectively at home.
