Children's Dentistry

Because your kids are special...

Our children’s teeth are just as sensitive and vulnerable as they are. That is why it is important to give them the professional attention that they deserve. If it is time to bring your child for a dentist appointment, you may wish to consider visiting a clinic with a dedicated department for children’s dentistry.

The Albany Dental team in Brisbane is versed in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of children’s oral conditions. Our easy-going Albany Creek dentists and staff work great with children of all ages. Our vast experience working with young kids means that we possess an uncanny ability to make your kids feel comfortable and safe in a clinical environment. We also share tips with parents on how they can keep their children’s teeth healthy and beautiful.

Your child's first dental visit

The need for a child to feel comfortable in a dentist’s office cannot be overstated, particularly for those who are seeing a dentist for the very first time. The initial dental visit is extremely important. Early negative experiences may adversely affect the child’s perception of a dentist appointment for many years afterwards. In extreme cases, it can even lead to dental phobia.

Proper dental care is also the most critical during the child’s formative years. As their teeth are still growing, they are particularly vulnerable to tooth decay and other oral ailments. That said, there is never a good time to neglect your child’s oral health.

If you are looking for a child-friendly Brisbane clinic, you’ve come to the right place. Let us partner you in looking after your child’s teeth. We’ll help you make sure that they remain beautiful and healthy for life.

Great dental care begins early at Albany Dental...

Good oral hygiene practice like daily brushing and flossing, while important, must be supplemented by regular visits to the dentist. Indeed, bringing your children to see the dentist at least twice a year should be part and parcel of your family’s standard oral care practice. Habits established from a young age often extend into adulthood with greater ease, and that is where an active children’s oral care maintenance program plays a critical role.

The ideal age for your child to see a dentist for the first time is around 6 or 7 months old – when the first baby teeth erupt. We highly recommend that your child’s first visit be made by his or her first birthday. Most children will require professional care at some point. Regular visits to the dentist to evaluate your child’s caries risk will drastically reduce the likelihood of common childhood dental issues developing into something serious.

At Albany Dental, we take a preventative approach to strengthening your child’s resistance against cavities and tooth decay. Topical fluoride treatments and application tooth sealants performed in the dentist’s office greatly reduce the vulnerability of your child’s growing teeth and have proven to be immensely helpful as deterrents to decay. Of course, your child’s twice yearly visits must also include professional check-and-clean sessions, to make sure that every preventative measure is utilised to keep their teeth free from plaque and cavities.

Since children aged between 6 and 12 are likely to be involved with sporting activities, we also recommend the wearing of mouthguards to protect against any trauma or injury to their teeth and gums. In the event that the child’s tooth gets knocked out or damaged, we also provide children’s emergency services to repair the damage or at least stabilise the tooth until it has a chance to heal. Prompt and appropriate treatment of dental trauma or injuries is critical to salvaging healthy teeth.

When children are suffering from a dental trauma, there is really no substitute for trained professionals who can put them at ease, while gently coaxing them into accepting the treatment in a calm and cooperative fashion. At Albany Dental, our child-friendly dentists are trained to take quick and effective action. Parents can enjoy a peace of mind knowing their little ones are in good hands.
