Children’s Dental Cleaning
At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre we believe that coming to the dentist as a child regularly will prevent a person from dental phobias, bad habits and more serious dental treatment in the future. After a child has had their exam, one of our highly trained dentists will give their teeth a cleaning. At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we will usually see if the child will sit in the chairs to check their teeth. If they are still a bit nervous, we recommend them sitting on their parents lap while we examine their teeth to ensure they are happy during their appointment. If the child is comfortable enough during the exam then we will do a cleaning.
Before the cleaning is performed one of our friendly dentists will explain what a dental cleaning entails and will show your our ultra-sonic cleaner so they will use to get them comfortable with their surroundings. A cleaning will be done for a child to remove any plaque build-up that could potentially cause cavities in the teeth. The ultra-sonic cleaner will not hurt and just sprays out a little bit of water which the nurse will remove with the suction. Once the teeth are all clean a paste will be used to polish the teeth to make them nice and shiny.
Your Smile Hub dentist will take the time to explain to parent and child the best way to brush their teeth with our tooth brush and teeth model and certain foods that should be avoided or limited to stop early decay in baby teeth.
If your child is very nervous and needs treatment done, we offer happy air inhalation sedation which can help a child to relax and make their treatment a better experience for them so they will not have a fear of the dentists when they are older.
