At Brigstock Dental, we believe in Preventative dental care and encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age.

Regular check-ups from a young age will ensure children won’t suffer from untreated dental decay with devastating effects on their growing dentition. These regular check-ups, alongside our preventative-focused approach for the whole family, will help to build trust, reduce anxiety and provide overall positive experiences.

Studies have shown that the younger the age that you bring your child to the dental practice, even if just for a check-up, the more likely they are to have a positive experience and will grow up without the fear of the dentist. Our team will take special care of your child to make them feel safe and cared for.

Prevention is always better than cure, so call the practice today to make an appointment for your child!


What should I expect at my Childs Dental Visit?

We will carefully check your child’s teeth and soft tissues and general oral health, looking for signs of damage or early decay that we may need to monitor or treat in the future.

We will also examine how your child bites their teeth together, especially when permanent teeth are present. This allows us to spot early signs of underbites, cross bites or overbites developing, and we can refer for orthodontic treatment at the right time. As with most things, the sooner you can start to treat it, the quicker it can be resolved.

We provide Fluoride applications, which are a safe and effective way to safeguard your growing child’s teeth from developing decay. The fluoride is painted onto the surface of the child’s teeth, and this helps to mineralise the teeth. We provide Fissure sealants, which are tooth coloured and applied to biting surfaces of children’s teeth to prevent decay.

We will give toothbrushing advice and diet advice about the types of foods we recommend, sugar intake and how to adopt healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

No visit to the dentist is complete without a reward for being the best patient of the day!

When should I first bring my child to the Dentist?

We recommend bringing your children to visit us here at Brigstock Dental when their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday, whichever comes first.

Regular, early visits to the dentist are important for normalising the experience for your child so they feel comfortable and secure with us. This will prevent any fears or anxieties from arising and sets the foundation for making sure a visit to us is an enjoyable experience.
