Garden Dental Practice
Early oral care may prevent needing dental implants
When you have a family, it is important you see that all of their needs are met. When you come to visit our dentist, our team at The Garden Dental Practice will provide you and your children with a high level of dental care, from fillings to dental implants Golders Green, helping you all to maintain your smiles for many years to come.
In this article, we will explore how our clinic makes dental care accessible and how we try to protect children’s teeth from an early age. If you do lose a tooth in ensuing years as an adult we can provide reconstruction and dental implants Golders Green.
Our dentist knows more than anyone how uncomfortable it can be to attend a dental appointment. We will always aim to offer a welcoming environment to all our patients, ensuring that we answer any questions they have and that they understand how to care for their teeth and gums properly. This will also provide you with the opportunity to ask our team about any concerns you harbour, so you can get the best care available for yourself and your children.
Many people are unaware of the fact that children's teeth are thinner than adult’s teeth, even though they look a lot whiter! This can mean that they are susceptible to issues such as tooth decay more easily than adult teeth would be. One of the ways we can prevent your children's teeth from needing to be filled or extracted is to apply fluoride sealants. This will protect your children's enamel from the external acids and bacteria in the mouth, which will prevent decay from occurring.
Every child needs an orthodontic assessment by the age of seven in the UK and our team is proactive in this line of work. We can predict at an earlier age whether or not we feel that your children will need orthodontic care. This may not seem as important as preventing cavities, but misaligned teeth have been linked in dentistry to everything from speech impediments to a higher incidence of dental decay later in life. Therefore, we will aim to provide orthodontic care at an early age if required to prevent costs to you and to prevent future problems.
Services to you
As a parent, it is your role to ensure that your children are regularly brushing and flossing their teeth. But we know that this can be hard to accomplish by yourself and we are prepared to offer you tips and guidance on how to make the process enjoyable for your children. Everything from singing songs to playing games related to dental care can increase their involvement and, of course, the most important factor of all is brushing your teeth alongside your children so they can learn by example.
Our team will always aim to keep as many teeth in the mouth as we can, but in the event that you need an extraction, we will be able to offer this to you, and will work to ensure that it is as comfortable as possible. We want to make certain that all our patients have a fully functioning mouth, using crowns or even dental implants Golders Green when reconstructions are necessary.
