It is important to get children into the habit of good, clean oral hygiene to prevent gum disease and we make them feel right at home with our child oral hygiene service.
It is essential to set children up with good oral hygiene habits at a young age to ensure healthy teeth for life.
We discuss oral hygiene routines with both the parents and the child to encourage effective tooth brushing techniques and to introduce cleaning between the teeth (flossing).
The time when patients are wearing fixed braces which typically falls within the teenage years, but of course not always, is an extremely important time for the teeth and gums to be kept extremely clean, and these patients need extra help as cleaning braces can be very difficult, and lots of support is needed.
We also talk to our younger patients about sugar intake, to help them achieve decay free mouths. The price for a child appointment ( Under 16's ) is £50 GBP.
We are able to attends nurseries, schools, or boarding schools. Children who are at boarding schools would greatly benefit from our service as it is often difficult for parents to arrange time to go to the dental practice when their children are full time boarders. Our service alleviates that problem and gives parents peace of mind that their child does not miss school for appointments and still gets treated regularly in order to maintain amazing oral health.
