They sure are handy when you smile. So keep your teeth around a while! – Dr. Suess
At Sherwood Smiles we like to provide services to the little ones too! With services such as cleans, x-rays, fillings and much more. It is important to teach the importance of good dental health from a young age in order to avoid any complications that may arise in the future.
Your child may be eligible for the Child Dental Benefit Scheme ($1000 every 2 years) which Sherwood Smiles is happy to provide with a gap free payment!
When to Start?
It is recommended a regular cleaning routine should commence when your baby first begins to teeth however you should not use toothpaste until the ages of 2-3.
What are Fissure Sealants?
Fissures are natural grooves in teeth that are formed on the chewing surfaces of teeth. To avoid food getting trapped in these grooves a resign based material is placed on the tooth acting as a barrier.
It is a quick, non invasive procedure and plays an important role in preventing cavities from forming. Please feel free to contact Sherwood Smiles to make an appointment or if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's dental health!
