Paediatric Dentist Brisbane QLD
Do you want your child to have a smile that lasts a lifetime?
Excellence in Dentistry believes in starting excellent oral health care early in a person’s life, so we focus on helping your kids feel comfortable with coming to the dentist, teaching them to care for the health of their teeth and preventing problems.
Your child’s visit is as special to us as yours, and together we ensure your child has the best chance for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
One of the preventive measures to protect children’s back teeth is fissure sealants. They are a protective plastic coating, which are applied to the chewing surfaces of newly erupted molars at risk of decay. The chewing surfaces of back teeth have small grooves or fissures which often extend right down into the tooth itself.
However well the teeth are brushed, these fissures are very difficult to clean thoroughly. Bacteria and food particles stick to them and eventually cause decay. Fissure sealants completely seal off these grooves, preventing any food particles or bacteria from getting in. They do not affect the normal chewing function of teeth.
Looking after their oral health now and for tomorrow.
We believe that prevention is better than cure, so we aim to educate children on the best ways to care for their teeth, and communicate with them in a way that they can understand.
We aim to be a partner in your child’s oral health and hope to establish a long-lasting relationship with your child based on trust, mutual respect and compassion.
Save your kids and your own precious teeth by wearing a simple mouth guard when playing sports, riding skates or even bikes, especially BMX. Be a role model for your kids and teach them to protect their teeth. Start early with personal safety gears and your kids will learn to take their safety seriously.
Mouth guard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums, and most often is used to prevent injury in contact sports.
