We treat children of all ages at Monkstown Dental Surgery. It is important that from an early age children become accustomed to going to the dentist. This is so that the child gets used to the environment, and also has regular maintenance and oral hygiene appointments to prevent problems as they get older.
Early diagnoses and detection of dental decay or disease is paramount to the dental health of the child in adult life.
These are placed on the surfaces of the permanent teeth on children usually from the age of six years old onwards (when the first permanent teeth erupt). This reduces the risk of early decay in the pits and fissures of the permanent teeth.
Tooth brushing technique and instruction along with dietary advice is a major part of children’s dentistry at the regular checkups. The fabrication of mouth guards for sport is usually carried out to prevent dental injury or trauma.
