Children’s Dentistry Sydney

Children’s dentistry is a specialised service that addresses the specific needs of children’s oral health. From monitoring their first teeth and overseeing development through their teen years, regular dental visits can play a major role in preventing oral health problems and keeping future dental costs under control.

Preventive children’s dentistry is our goal as well as teaching children the overall importance that dentistry plays in their health. Our team here at Pitt Street Dental Centre in Sydney CBD enjoys taking care of young patients and will help guide you through dental and orthodontic services to help keep your child’s oral health in good shape.

Why Children’s Dentistry?

Children's Dentistry Sydney - Pitt Street Dental Centre

Children’s dentistry is for children as young as two or three years old, whenever their teeth begin growing in and you feel comfortable bringing them. When children come at an early age before dental problems begin, they learn that going to the dentist is a normal part of life and nothing to be afraid of. And when problems do arise, they are more comfortable letting someone know so it can be addressed right away.

When children are young, they have different needs such as learning how to care for their teeth. When they visit us, we will do a full checkup to make sure there are no issues and then schedule regular checkups so we can monitor the growth of their teeth.

Identifying problems like narrow dental arches, wisdom teeth problems or crooked teeth can be caught and treated early, which can prevent more complicated dental treatments in the future.

As children grow, their dental needs change and they may begin to need orthodontics. Because of social media, more older children and teens are aware of the appearance of their teeth, and more willing to seek treatment to keep them in top shape. To accommodate, we offer low-profile orthodontic braces and clear aligners for effective solutions with improved comfort during treatment.

Prevention is Key

At Pitt Street Dental Centre in Sydney, we know that parents teach their children healthy habits like brushing their teeth and to avoid too much sugar. We partner with parents to reinforce these habits and can help make oral hygiene second nature for them.

To begin, your child can get a checkup and polish, which introduces them to dentistry as they enjoy the fresh feeling that the polishing leaves in their mouth. After that, regular checkups allow us to find hidden problems like cavities to help prevent pain and premature tooth loss. And if your child does have a dental problem, our team will ensure they are taken care of with gentleness and compassion.

Dental Techniques for Children

Whether we do a regular checkup or fill a cavity, we will incorporate a technique called Tell, Show, Do, which helps put children at ease.

Is the step in which we tell your child what we will do. Knowing exactly what is taking place can be a great way to lessen fears and anxiety.

Showing them what we will do with a mirror and the dental tools that will be used can be fun as they become part of the process.

Is the important step of actually performing the treatment. We will do our best to keep the treatment low-stress and let your child know they can raise their hand if they need to take a break or stop. They will quickly learn they are in control, which also helps alleviate fear.

And parent’s have no need to worry, as modern dentistry has advanced and many treatments cause little to no pain. We may also use local anesthetics or other ways to ease stress, and do our best to make any treatment as comfortable as possible.

The First Dentist Visit

The First Dentist Visit-Childrens Dentistry Sydney-Pitt Street Dental Centre

Older Children and Teenagers

Orthodontics is the most popular dental services for this age group as they are ready and willing to get their teeth looking their best. With early intervention, the use of treatments such as palate expansion can help them avoid or lessen the need for future braces, while early braces might help reduce teeth crowding that can lead to impacted canine teeth and recurring gum disease. We offer both traditional braces and Invisalign for moderate to mildly crooked teeth. Both are low profile and offer comfortable treatments to help put teeth where they belong.
