Children & The Dentist
We encourage parents to bring their children into us from around the age of three years or earlier if you have a concern. Visit Vard Dental so that your child becomes familiar with our environment and gets to know your friendly dentist.
Vard Dental can identify any oral health problems at an early stage. Just opening up the child’s mouth for the dentist to take a look is a useful practise. This simple action is explained to the child, ideally done with the child in the dentist chair, in the presence of the parent.
We provide children with a free “treat bag” which includes a “Tooth Brushing Star Chart” and enter older children in a free raffle for a music voucher.
We can talk with you about good oral health routines and habits for children.
Some parents decide to have a fissure sealant treatment for their children. A fissure sealant treatment can last several years and reduces the risk of tooth decay and the formation of a cavity or cavities.
We can talk with you about how your childrens’ teeth will develop and give your some tips about what to watch out for and what to encourage. If orthodontic treatment is needed we will refer to an orthodontist at an early stage.
We encourage the use of Sports Gumshields during all sports activities. We can make Gumshields fun by introducing colour e.g. your childs’ team colour.
