At Whitesmile Dental Care we've put a lot of thought into making your child’s experience a positive one.

We take the time to talk your child through their dental experience . While ensuring they are as comfortable as possible . We have a rooftop mounted tv screen where your child can stream their favorite show. We even have a little treasure waiting for them in reception when they are finished their appointment. 

As parents, it’s important to guide you children towards good dental health from an early age.

We recommend children attend for a familiarisation visit at 12-18 months.

We recommend to start brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they erupt, so that it becomes a part of their everyday routine -kids love routine! Brush gently with a soft bristled baby toothbrush and a tiny amount of low fluoride toothpaste, twice a day after breakfast and before bedtime.

The other key aspect to prevention of tooth decay in children is their diet. Many people are unaware that tooth decay is caused by a bacterial infection. The bacteria on and in between our teeth use the sugar and carbohydrates that we eat and convert it to acid. The acid is what damages the teeth to cause a cavity in the tooth.

Many children love sweet foods and with our modern diet

Hidden sugar and carbs are in many everyday foods that may appear to be healthy. Examples include – juice, fruit, muesli bars,breakfast cereals,yoghurt. Sugar is also prevalent in cordials,sports drinks and soft drinks and these should be limited to very rare treats. Water and milk are the two best drinks for children.Cheese is a good snack as it helps reverse tooth decay. Vegetable sticks eg carrots, cucumber are also very good snacks for kids.

Babies and toddlers should never sleep with a bottle of milk or juice as the prolonged contact with the teeth can cause extensive tooth decay.

Prevention of tooth decay in childhood is very important for long-term oral health.

Although baby teeth are designed to be lost, losing a tooth before the adult tooth is ready to erupt can lead to a loss of space for the adult teeth and can cause crowding issues, which may lead to orthodontic care that otherwise may have been avoided.
