When it comes to children, our philosophy at Praxis Dental is well put in a proverb – “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We want to help you and your child look after those precious pearly whites at all stages of their development, right up to their adulthood. Our gentle and caring team of dentists and nurses will explain the importance of oral hygiene and prevention in the most child friendly atmosphere. We strongly focus on the following aspects of dental health for children:
It is recommended that your child’s first oral health visit take place at 12 months of age, or soon after the eruption of the first baby teeth. It is extremely important to get your child in the habit of seeing the dentist from an early age to avoid developing a sense of fear.
Our dentists will evaluate your child’s teeth and oral health to diagnose any problems that might exist. We try and make the appointment as much fun as possible because stress-free dental visits are imperative in laying the foundation for a lifetime of sound oral and dental health.
Orthodontics & Habits
During a check-up, we also evaluate child’s developing jaws and teeth as certain signs could suggest need for orthodontic treatment.
Certain habits like persistent thumb sucking, habitual mouth breathing may create issues with proper growth of mouth and alignment of teeth. Ideally an orthodontic evaluation should occur at eight years of age.
Let us show you why parents are choosing Praxis Dental, a Gold Coast dental clinic, for their kids’ dental needs.
