At Boon Dental, our dental team have years of experience with children & look to make every visit as pleasant and fun as possible.
We can organise appointments for your child with our dentists after school or on a weekend to ensure they don’t need to miss any school.
It’s recommended that children from 18 months old should start learning some positive dental habits, like brushing their teeth twice a day and flossing.
We’re all aware of the negative impact sugar has for our teeth. However, it really comes down to the frequency of sugar as opposed to eating or drinking a lot at the one time. The best time for a child to eat sweet foods is at the end of their meal because you can then plan around their brushing cycle. It’s really important to look after the health of milk (baby) teeth as they are essential not only for eating, but for speech development, facial appearance and saving space for adult teeth to grow into.
While regular dental check-ups are not required for younger children, there are benefits to bring them with you upon your 6-month check ups. Not only will they have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with a dental appointment, they’ll be able to meet our children’s dentist and learn to not be fearful of visiting in future!
When your children become more independent and brush their teeth without supervision, you should organise regular hygiene appointments with our kids dentists. Teenage years are typically when orthodontic treatment takes place as most of the baby teeth will have been lost and replaced by adult teeth. Our children’s dentist will be able to advise you on the best time to see an orthodontist or paediatric dentist, and we have a specialised dentist team who are experts in Invisalign teeth straightening.
