Smiling Children, Happy Parents

Dentistry for Children
Paediatric Dental Care

At Beyond Dental Care, we love working with kids, focussing on giving them a great and pain-free experience that will set them up for a life of great oral health. We focus on fun and education. Our little patients are always fascinated when we explain how our advanced technology works, and we use a variety of tools and techniques to put them at ease and to ease any concerns they may have had about coming to the dentist.

Starting your child’s dental care early in life is essential to establish great oral care practices which will set them up for life. Regular check ups and education from our dentists can help keep smiles bright and teeth healthy, helping to avoid dental decay which can lead to pain, fear and increased cost of care. Think of your kids dental checks like taking your car to the mechanic. Regular maintenance keeps things running smoothly and avoids unexpected, inconvenient and painful emergency treatment.

First Dental Visit. The specialised, paediatric, friendly, and holistic service provided for a child’s first dental visit.

We always aim to make your child’s first dental visit super fun! Depending on their age, this may just be sitting in the chair, or on your lap on the chair, and having them open their mouth for the dentist. We work with their comfort level. If they’d like the dentist to have a look in their mouth with a mirror, we can work with that! If they just want to meet the dentist, we can work with that too! And they always leave with a fun little gift to send them on their way to great oral health.

  • Regular Dental Check Up and Clean: Your child should visit the dentist every six months for a clean and check up. This ensures their teeth stay healthy, and that we can help them with oral hygiene habits. In the event that an issue is detected, we can solve the problem nice and early before things get painful. Early experience with dental pain can lead to a life-long fear of dentists. And, depending on your situation, your child’s check ups may be free!
  • Dental Sealants: Sometimes your child’s dentist will recommend fissure sealing one or more of your child’s teeth. Deep grooves, especially in molars, can be difficult to clean which can lead to trapped food and decay. Fissure sealant material is tooth coloured and is applied over the top of cleaned grooves to form a protective barrier over the grooves which prevents food getting trapped on chewing surfaces.
  • Tooth Coloured Fillings: In the event that your child does need a filling, the dentist will use a composite resin that matches the shade of your child’s teeth. The resin is shaped to match your child’s existing tooth, then hardened using a curing light. The dentist will polish the tooth and check that it feels comfortable to your child. When completed, a filling will closely resemble your child’s natural tooth!
  • Sedation Options: Kids can be very nervous of the unknown, and a trip to the dentist can sometimes cause anxiety, especially if they’ve had a previously painful experience. At Beyond Dental Care, we offer Nitrous Oxide (happy gas) to help our patients have a calm and pain-free experience. Combined with oxygen, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a special scented nasal hood (and your child can choose the scent!) whilst the dentist undertakes their work in your child’s mouth. Nitrous oxide can make a huge difference to anxious patients of all ages.
  • General Anesthesia: In some cases, dental work required may need to be undertaken under general anaesthetic. If this is the case for your child, we will refer them to a trusted paediatric specialist dentist to arrange treatment in hospital.
  • Management of Developing Dentition & Occlusion: Part of your child’s oral health journey at Beyond Dental Care includes the dentist monitoring your child’s current and developing teeth, as well as jaw alignment. This may include issues with unerupted teeth, overcrowding, abnormalities in tooth number, size, shape and position, some of which can lead to problems with eating, breathing. overall body health and self-confidence. Your child’s dentist will discuss any issues with you as well as recommended courses of treatment.
  • Orthodontics: Depending on your child’s requirements, we may be able to assist with orthodontic adjustment using Invisalign. This is becoming an increasingly common treatment as the aligners are virtually invisible, and convenient, as they may be removed to eat and drink. In some cases, traditional wired orthodontics may be required. If this is the case for your child, we will refer you to a trusted orthodontist for conventional orthodontic treatment.
  • Emergency Care: Dental pain can be intolerable. At Beyond Dental Care, we allocated emergency appointments each day to ensure that we can get your child out of pain as quickly as possible. Injuries caused in the playground or on the sporting field can also lead to dental emergencies. In the event that this happens to your child, please contact us immediately and we will ensure that they are looked after by one of our amazing dentists.
  • Special Needs Dentistry: At Beyond Dental Care, our dentists have the experience and ability to provide specialised care for children with a range of special needs. Please contact us to discuss your child’s requirements, and we will provide an appointment with the best dentist for their needs.

At Beyond Dental Care, we’d love to show your child how fun and pain-free a trip to the dentist can be.

We provide tailored and specialised care in line with your child’s needs, and through care and education, we can set them up with a healthy smile to carry them through life!
