At Sure Dental we take pride in the fact that our young patients get excited about coming to visit us. We not only provide excellent care for families we also help patients of all ages feel comfortable in our relaxing environment. We have a strong focus on prevention for children from oral hygiene education to manufacturing mouthguards. During treatment with us your child’s bite will be continually monitored and if necessary, we will intervene to ensure they grow up with a beautiful healthy smile.
The greatest thing you can do to prevent problems with teeth is to provide the proper education at a young age. If your children know why they need to brush their teeth then they are more likely to keep up the habit. As dentists, therapists and hygienists we can show them why it’s important to brush and floss with examples. We can also teach them the correct way to brush and floss, and encourage them to practice at home in readiness for their next appointment with us!
If your child practices any sport that involves bats, clubs, balls, courts and of course contact with other children then they should be wearing a mouthguard. We see too many children come in to visit our practice that have suffered a dental accident due to not wearing a mouthguard during practice or their game.
The best type of mouthguard to wear is a custom made mouthguard – which we offer here at Sure Dental in North Brisbane. These are similar to store-bought mouthguards in terms of material and appearance. The difference is that a custom mouthguard is made to correctly fit your child’s teeth. Research has proven that these mouthguards can more accurately protect your children and also decrease their risk of sustaining a more serious neck or jaw injury.
Of course, simply mention that you would like both yourself and your son or daughter to be seen and we’ll be able to accommodate enough time to do so during your appointment.
