Dr Ellie Nadian is a child-friendly specialist paediatric dentist in Brisbane. She has a child-centric approach and provides specialised services, including sleep dentistry and treatment options for young children and those with
special needs such as Autism, ADHD, or non-verbal communication. With over a decade of hands-on experience in dental care for children, she truly understands the intricacies of each child’s dental health, ensuring personalised and targeted treatments.
Special Dental Care for Brisbane Kids
Children tend to feel more comfortable when the clinic atmosphere and the care providers are relaxed and calm. Atmosphere, staff and the right tools are only sometimes enough, but they can go a long way.
Dr Ellie is a paediatric dentist who believes in “talk therapy”. She talks to children and explains the stages of dental treatment in a kid’s language. Children participate in the treatment and learn about dentistry along the way.
A dental X-ray machine, for example, is Dr Ellie’s special camera. A camera that she uses to see inside a tooth. And local anaesthetic is something that she uses to put a tooth to sleep, and the happy gas mask is the astronaut
Children’s Dental Home in Brisbane
Rather than a ‘dental office’, Dr Ellie would like children to see her dental clinic as their ‘dental home’. While waiting for their dental appointment at Pure Dentistry, children can sit in a special kid’s chair, watch TV, and watch Nemo and Dory in the mesmerising saltwater marine fish tank.
Visiting Dr Ellie’s dental home can be fun, and fun visits to the dentist shape the way children view dental treatment for the rest of their lives. A child’s first visit to the dentist should be a happy one.
Sleep Dentistry for Brisbane Kids with Special Needs
Sleep dentistry for children is an approach to managing dental treatment for children. It helps them sleep during their dental procedure. It alleviates the sensory overstimulation that dental procedures might cause in children with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Children may have difficulties with communication, social interaction, and behavioural regulation, leading to potential resistance during dental procedures. Sleep dentistry allows for a controlled environment, enabling paediatric dentists to increase the quality of dental treatment.
Happy Gas for Kids Dental Treatment
Happy gas has been used safely and effectively in paediatric dental treatments for decades. It reduces anxiety, fear and pain in children and fosters cooperation between the child and the pediatric dentist, which increases the success rate of dental treatments.
Treatment of Dental Trauma for Brisbane Kids
Pure Dentistry can restore or treat dental traumas in children, including tooth fractures, tooth dislodgements and knocked-out teeth, and they can provide an appropriate sedation option to avoid or minimise traumatising children. They will treat a tooth pushed sideways, out of, or into its socket. For baby teeth, the dentist will evaluate if it affects the permanent tooth underneath. If a permanent tooth is dislodged, it’s usually repositioned and stabilised with a splint. Sometimes, root canal treatment may be needed.
If the injury is life-threatening, or for some reason, you cannot make an emergency appointment, please call 000.
