Professional Children’s Dentist Operating in Parramatta
We encourage children from the ages of two to three to have their first dental visit.
Starting from an early age encourages good oral hygiene and reduces the fears of seeing a dentist.
Children have highest risk of developing dental decay, which if not treated, causes pain, potential infection and abnormal development of permanent teeth.
Research into children’s dental problems
Research shows that children with dental decay in their baby teeth are much more likely to have decay affecting their permanent teeth.
More importantly, loss of baby teeth due to dental decay will cause a lack of space for permanent teeth therefore significantly increasing the risk of crowded permanent teeth and requirement for braces.
It is important to tell your children that a visit to the dentist is nothing to be afraid of. Also try to avoid expression of fear for dentists in front of your children – because they can easily pick up that impression.

The importance of children’s dentistry
Having straight teeth and a beautiful smile is not a dream and you deserve it.
Do not put it off as we offer free first consultation and we offer you the best technology (conventional braces and invisalign) that suits you.
For children from age 7-8, it is important that they receive consultation to detect habitual problem (such as thumb sucking) and bite discrepancy (overbite and under bite) because these issues need to be detected and addressed as early as possible. If neglected, full correction may not be possible at a later age without extensive surgery.
For teenagers, orthodontic treatment is recommended as early as they develop a full set of adult teeth (usually at age 11-13) because teeth move faster at this age.
