At Aglow Dental Group, we have a keen interest in looking after our littlest patients. When excellent oral health starts at an early age, today’s children can avoid many of the oral conditions that put smiles at risk.
We customise the treatment we provide for kids based on their needs, dental caries (decay) risk and their health as they grow and develop. Maintaining communication with parents creates a partnership that supports excellent oral health and happy smiles both here in the dental clinic and at home.
Gentle Dentistry for Kids
We believe in pain-free dentistry. Dr Angela Zhang and our oral health therapists are gentle when cleaning or restoring children’s teeth to ensure their comfort and prevent any negative feelings associated with dentistry.
We work quickly, understanding that children have shorter attention spans; over-extending their patience can undermine our best efforts. By bringing your child in for twice-yearly active maintenance appointments, including a check-up and clean, we can gauge their ability to sit still for treatment.
We would rather have your child back for shorter appointments than to go beyond their tolerance to sit still.
We also offer nitrous oxide, also known as happy gas, to safely help children relax during procedures.
Why Baby (Deciduous or Primary) Teeth Are Important
Many parents do not realise the importance of primary teeth. Though they will eventually fall out, baby teeth provide a guide for the healthy development of their permanent, adult teeth.
Decay prevention to preserve the health of teeth and avoid premature extractions will preserve space for adult teeth to develop properly. If necessary, we can use space maintainers to prevent crooked or overlapping teeth.
Dentistry for Your Growing Child
We begin with a happy visit to familiarise your little one with the dental surgery. Our team loves working with kids and will make them feel special from the moment they walk through the door.
A special prize at the end of the appointment leaves kids feeling like they did a great job at their dental visit.
Our comprehensive approach to paediatric dentistry and our Haymarket dental clinic is designed to keep the most precious smiles healthy.
