Our team of kids dentists at Kelmscott Dental in Perth can provide quality treatments for kids of any ages. Dental treatments available for kids include check-ups, x-rays, fillings, custom-made sports mouthguards and tooth extractions if necessary. We provide gentle dental solutions for kids to enjoy visiting our clinic to help them maintain their oral hygiene for life.
When Should Kids Start Visiting the Dentist?
We advise parents to bring their kids to the dentist as soon as possible, preferably from the age of one year old or when their teeth first start to appear. We encourage this so they can get used to the dental chair and to identify any early signs of tooth decay or other dental concerns that may need treatment down the track.
What Happens on Their First Visit?
Dependent on the child, they can either have a sit in the chair and just get used to the room, or if they allow, let the dentist to have a look in their mouth for them to do an examination and take some x-rays. We conduct x-ray examinations when children are old enough to have them, which tends to be from 6+ years old.
How Can Parents Prepare Their Kids?
As we encourage parents to bring their child to the dentist from an early age, you can even bring them along with older siblings when they come for a check-up so they get used to the Kelmscott Dental environment.
How Should You Keep Your Kids’ Teeth Healthy?
The most important piece of advice we can offer is for kids to brush their teeth twice a day for at least two minutes. For more handy tips about oral hygiene for kids from the Australian Dental Association, click here.
