13 Mar Children’s Dentistry At Crown House Dental In Egham
Looking after children’s teeth and gums at your local dentist.
Here at your local Egham dentist in Surrey, we offer the latest and some of the most advanced dental technology to our patients.
From general dentistry offering vital services like routine checkups, tooth straightening, bridges, crowns, and hygienist services, to cosmetic dentistry offering ‘A list smiles’ with tooth whitening, veneers and more.
We pride ourselves on offering the entire family the necessary dental treatment they need, and clearly children’s dentistry is a big part of what we do – looking after tomorrow’s adult smiles. A child’s oral health is so important in terms of the smile they will have as an adult.
Why Are Baby Teeth So Important?
Baby teeth are saving the space for the adult teeth when they come through, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t important. Baby teeth help to provide the structure in your mouth which aids your speech, which is so important to a child who is still learning how to talk and express themselves. They also help the child chew and digest, and they help them smile. Damaging baby teeth can have a deep effect on a child’s development, and on the smile they will have as an adult, so it is very important they are looked after.
Children’s Oral Care At Home
In between your child’s checkups at Crown House Dental in Egham, a strong oral health regime needs to be in place so that they are able to fully understand the importance of caring for their teeth. From cleaning their gums when they are a baby, all the way to supervising them brushing their own teeth later on, the emphasis should always be on how great it is to care for the teeth. The toothbrush and the toothpaste don’t matter quite as much as getting the child to really want to invest in their oral health.
Techniques like setting a good example, talking about being grown-up and looking after teeth, making a two minute brushing time song, talking about big smiles and happy teeth etc are all great ways to get your child more invested in their oral health. Your Egham dentist can of course support you with this from day one, and give you advice, tips and supportive hygienist treatments during your child’s visits with us.
Crown House Dental & Children’s Dentistry
Our Egham dentist is a family practice offering advanced and standard children’s dentistry. We recommend you start bringing your child in to us as soon as you can, so that they can get used to the environment. During their first visit (usually when they have their first tooth) we will usually focus on getting them happy in a dental environment with special techniques and tricks we have. Once they are comfortable letting us examine their gums and teeth, we can do so.
Sometimes children need to be seen after watching their brother or sister have their appointment, some children like to see mummy or daddy having their checkup – we work around your child’s needs so that they feel happy to have their checkup. We will put everything in place to ensure our Egham dentist is not a source of worry for your child.
