Orthodontic assessment

At Corner 32 Dental, we recommend that all children have an orthodontic assessment by the age of seven. By this age, most children have a good mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, which makes it easier for us to assess any potential problems.

Orthodontic problems can impact both the function and the appearance of your child’s teeth, so it’s important to identify them early. Treatment can be much simpler and more effective if it’s started early. In some cases, we may even be able to avoid the need for braces altogether. 

So if you’re concerned about your child’s teeth, please don’t hesitate to contact us to book an orthodontic assessment. We’ll be happy to provide expert advice on your child’s best course of action.

Fissure sealants

Fissure sealants are a type of preventative dental treatment that can help to reduce the risk of tooth decay. The treatment involves coating the grooves and pits of the teeth with a sealant, which helps to fill in any spaces where bacteria can hide. 

Fissure sealants are most commonly used on molars and premolars, as these teeth are more susceptible to decay. The procedure is quick and easy and does not require any anesthesia. Fissure sealants are an important part of preventative dental care, and they are especially beneficial for children. 

At Corner 32 Dental, we offer fissure sealants for children at an affordable price. Fissure sealants can help to protect your child’s teeth from decay, and they can also save you money in the long run by reducing the need for fillings and other dental treatments. Contact us today to learn more about our fissure sealants procedure.

Caries detection

At Corner 32 Dental, we use the latest technology to detect and treat caries in children. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes digital x-ray machines that allow us to get a clear picture of the teeth and identify any areas of concern. 

We understand that dental care can be a daunting experience for children, but we strive to make it positive and stress-free. This is why we often use nitrous oxide sedation (happy gas) when treating children which means most of the time we can avoid the use of local anaesthetic. This ensures the whole experience is more comfortable for the child and most importantly, they don’t have the distress of feeling numb after the procedure. When you bring your child to Corner 32 Dental, you can be confident that they will receive the best possible care.

Happy gas

Happy gas, or nitrous oxide, is a safe and effective way to help children relax during dental procedures. This allows children to be able to complete their fillings without local anaesthetic most of the time.  At Corner 32 Dental, our team is experienced in working with children, and we always strive to make their experience as positive as possible. Nitrous oxide is a colourless, odourless gas that is inhaled through a small mask. 

It helps to reduce anxiety and pain, and it also has a calming effect. The gas takes effect within minutes, and its effects wear off quickly once the procedure is over. Best of all, nitrous oxide is completely safe for both short- and long-term use. If you’re looking for a dental office that puts your child’s needs first, look no further than Corner 32 Dental.

Mouthguards

Corner 32 offers a wide range of customised mouthguards for children and teenagers including

Children who wear braces are at a higher risk for oral injury, so it’s important to make sure they wear a mouthguard during any activities that could result in a fall or collision. While there are many different types of mouthguards available, those made specifically for children with braces offer the best protection. 

It is estimated that nearly half of all children between the ages of six and nine have some degree of crooked teeth. While this is often simply a cosmetic issue, it can also lead to more serious problems later on if left untreated. One way to help correct crooked teeth is to utilise mouthguards. Mouthguards are appliances worn over the teeth to gently realign them into the correct position.

Frequently asked questions

How often should kids go to the dentist?

Kids should go to the dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts, and then every six months after that. This is important because it helps the dentist to detect any problems early on and prevent them from getting worse. It also gives the child a chance to get used to going to the dentist, which can make them less scared of going as they get older.

Furthermore, regular dental visits help to ensure that the child’s teeth are healthy and strong. Ultimately, by taking your child to the dentist every six months, you can help them to develop a lifelong habit of good oral hygiene.

What do they do at a child's first dentist appointment?

The first dentist appointment is an important milestone for any child. The dentist will assess the child’s oral health during the appointment and check for any signs of decay or problems. The teeth will be cleaned and polished, and the dentist may also give the child a fluoride treatment to help prevent cavities. 

In addition, the dentist will provide guidance on how to care for the child’s teeth at home, including tips on brushing and flossing. The dentist can ensure that the child’s teeth are healthy and strong by taking these steps.

What is the difference between a kid's dentist and a general dentist?

When it comes to dental care, children have unique needs that must be addressed in order to ensure a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. That’s why it’s important to choose a dentist who has experience treating young patients. 

A general dentist may provide basic dental care for all members of the family, but a kids dentist has additional training in dealing with the specialised needs of children. 

Kids dentists are familiar with the types of dental problems that are common in childhood, and they know how to put young patients at ease. As a result, kid’s dentists are usually the best choice for providing dental care for children.
