Paediatric Dentistry Oxford

Why Children Need to See a Dentist

We recommend bringing your child for their first dental visit by age 1 or within 6 months of their first tooth erupting. Early visits allow us to identify and address potential issues before they worsen, preventing more extensive treatments in the future.

These initial appointments also help familiarise your child with the dental environment, reducing anxiety and fostering a positive attitude towards oral health care.

During these visits, we provide age-appropriate oral hygiene guidance, teaching your child the importance of proper brushing in a fun, engaging manner.

Most importantly, early dental visits enable us to establish a trusting relationship with your child, building a foundation of comfort and confidence that will last throughout their dental journey.

Treatments Offered to Children at Kennett Road Dental Practice

Preventive dental care is the foundation of paediatric dentistry. Our services include:

  • Regular check-ups and cleanings
  • Fluoride treatments to strengthen enamel
  • Fissure sealants to protect molars from decay
  • Oral hygiene education for children and parents
  • Dietary advice to minimise the risk of cavities

When dental issues arise, we also offer gentle restorative treatments:

  • Tooth-coloured fillings for cavities
  • Pulp therapy for infected baby teeth
  • Extractions, when necessary, to maintain oral health

Fissure Sealants: Protecting Children's Teeth

Fissure sealants are a safe, effective way to protect the grooves of molars from decay-causing bacteria. We recommend sealants because:

  • Molars have deep grooves that are difficult to clean
  • Sealants create a smooth surface that is easier to brush
  • They can last for several years, providing long-term protection
  • Sealants are painless and can be applied in a single visit

Fluoride Treatments Every 6 Months

Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and helps prevent cavities. We recommend fluoride treatments every 6 months because:

  • Fluoride integrates into the tooth structure, making it more resistant to decay
  • Regular treatments provide ongoing protection as your child grows
  • Fluoride treatments are quick, painless, and well-tolerated by children
  • They complement daily brushing with fluoride toothpaste
