Accurate monitoring and planning during the childhood years are essential. In children, preventive dentistry is very important.
Early exams and cleaning can lay the groundwork for a lifetime of dental health.
After getting your kid’s teeth cleaned, reinforcing the dentist’s work with fluoride can help make the teeth more resistant to decay.
Fissure sealants are a preventive measure, which may benefit your child.
As children’s permanent molars erupt between the ages of six and twelve, dental sealants are applied to the surfaces to prevent decay from happening in the grooves found in these back teeth.
As they continue to grow, children may need orthodontic work (braces), during which they wear brackets and wires surrounding most of the teeth to prevent misalignment as the jaw matures into adulthood.
At Smile Dental Studios Gosnells, we provide comfortable dental care and environment for your child.

Children’s Dental Care Tips
Smile Dental Studios will provide you with tips on how to take care of your child’s teeth at home, including the proper way to brush and floss your child’s teeth and additional information based on your child’s oral health condition.
Another topic that’s typically addressed is your child’s eating habits and what parents should do to help protect their child’s teeth and gums.
As a general measure, parents should keep their children away from sugary and starchy foods. Also, a child should never sleep while nursing, or with a juice or milk in their bottle.
Your baby’s first teeth are important. Developmental stages that are vital to your child’s future dental health depend on them.
Children’s dentistry provides parents with a guide for oral care so that their children will have excellent dental hygiene as they mature.
