Developing long-term relationships with families and watching children grow with healthy happy smiles brings great joy to the team at North Brisbane Dental Clinic.
Partnering with Parents
Children develop quickly, and keeping parents informed is an essential part of achieving good oral health. North Brisbane Dental Clinic will always share any oral conditions you should be aware of and provide all treatment options available. You know your child best, and they will respect your decisions.
As your child grows, the clinic will evaluate their teeth and bite for orthodontics as well as monitor wisdom teeth development.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Children approach the world with a sense of wonder and curiosity. The North Brisbane Dental Clinic team enjoys watching them discover how to take care of their teeth and engaging them in interactive education to keep their smiles healthy.
They put your child in control. Kids enjoy working the buttons to move the chair (often with mum or dad in the chair) and pouring water into a cup. They also give kids choices when it comes to toothpaste flavours and a toy after their treatment.
Common Childhood Dental Conditions
Dental caries (decay) is one of the most common preventable childhood diseases. With guidance and support, your child can be cavity-free.
- Proper nutrition
- Good brushing and flossing habits
- Fluoride toothpaste
- Dental sealants
When decay does occur, North Brisbane Dental Clinic offers durable tooth-coloured fillings to repair and seal teeth. Dr Sheahan, Dr Brodie Hill, Dr El-Atem and Dr Darius Khadembaschi are gentle and work with your child to complete treatment. If your child is in pain or uncomfortable, they will stop this straight away.
Your Child’s Occlusion (Bite) and Development
In most cases, braces will not become necessary until your child has lost all primary teeth and their permanent teeth are in place. In some cases, however, the jaw may not develop properly to accommodate their adult teeth. In these situations, it can be beneficial to opt for early childhood orthodontics to guide jaw development and reduce future treatment.
Dr Georgia Sheahan and Dr Brodie Hill offer complimentary orthodontic evaluations to ensure your child enjoys a healthy and comfortable smile.
North Brisbane Dental Clinic treats every patient as they would want to be treated themselves, both in the dentistry they provide and in their manner of care. As part of the community, they value the role they have in your oral health.
Their team believes that dentistry can be a painless experience, and they spend the time necessary to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout your procedure.
