Children's Dentistry in Mentone and Bayside Area, Melbourne
A child’s baby or primary teeth are of great importance. Baby teeth can help pave the way for secondary teeth, as well as enhance a child’s speaking ability and chewing function.
Children should be seen by a dentist beginning as early as the first baby teeth appear. This not only introduces children to the dental sights and sounds, but makes it a more pleasurable experience when dental procedures are needed. It is also the first step in proper oral health to teach children good oral hygiene techniques through our integrated team of dentists.
By taking children to our dentists, problems such as crowded, missing, and crooked teeth as well as problems associated with diet, dental hygiene, and the jaws can be addressed. The earlier we discover these problems, the less difficult and expensive the treatment becomes. We may also recommend a mouthguard for those children who play sport where a tooth can be damaged or knocked out.

• Fillings and Crowns
Have a question?
Fissure sealants, which are small plastic fillings, can be placed in deep fissures (grooves) in the tooth to prevent tooth decay in these deep fissures, which are often not easily cleaned by a toothbrush or mouthwash.
A space maintainer is an appliance that is custom-made in acrylic or metal material. It can be either removable or cemented in a child's mouth. Its purpose is to keep the space open to allow the permanent tooth to erupt and come into place. If a space is not maintained, then teeth can shift into the open space and orthodontic treatment may be required.
