Children’s Dentistry

Child looking at tooth modelIf you’re a parent, you’re likely well aware of the importance of detecting potential dental issues early in life. At Smile Creation, we recommend your child visit us from two to three years old. They can even accompany you to your regular appointments with us, ensuring that they’re comfortable and relaxed in our environment.

Whether your child needs a checkup, or you have other concerns, we’ll be happy to gently evaluate their needs and give them nothing but a positive and relaxed experience in our family-friendly practice.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule

Smile Creation are proud to accept children under the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule. This program entitles eligible children from the ages 2-17 years, to receive up to $1000 in dental treatment every two years. Please contact the Medicare office to check your child’s eligibility. You can also contact our team to find out more or to book your time.

Encourage a Positive Outlook

We recommend parents to encourage enthusiasm when talking to or around their child about going to the dentist. It is so important to set your child up with a positive frame of mind regarding visiting dentist, so they don’t grow up being fearful or anxious. What you portray around them in terms of how you feel about the dentist, will pass on to them and influence their beliefs and feelings.

You can bring your child in with you for your appointment so we can involve your child and make them feel comfortable and excited when they see us. When you bring your child in for their own appointment, we’ll make it fun and relaxed so they can enjoy their experience.

Explore Our Children’s Dentistry Services

Smile Creation is your one-stop family shop for all your dental care. We have a wide range of children’s dentistry services, including:

  • Children’s Examinations – Our gentle dentist, Dr Sanjay, loves working with kids and educating them on oral health. During your child’s exam, we will gently look around their mouth and take X-rays if applicable.
  • Gentle Cleanings – Keep your child’s teeth and gums clean and plaque free with our gentle cleanings. We will discuss proper oral hygiene habits and teach them brushing and flossing techniques.
  • Fissure Sealants – Dental Fissure sealants are a great option for kids who have deep groves in their back molars. These groves are at higher risk of accumulating bacteria and plaque, so with a fissure sealant it will safeguard the tooth to prevent any future issues.
  • Fillings – Our gentle fillings are a safe, non-toxic resin material which is tooth-like in colour. It is important to fill cavities to prevent further damage which can cause more serious and costly procedures.
  • Fluoride Treatments – Our children’s fluoride treatments help the tooth enamel stay healthy and strong. Along with proper oral hygiene habits at home, you will be setting your smile up to last for years to come. Our fluoride treatments work like a protective barrier on the tooth’s surface.
  • Mouthguards – It’s so important to protect your teeth while playing contact sports to prevent any dental emergencies and serious injuries. Smile Creation offers customised sports mouthguards for children. Your child will be able to pick their colour and it will fit snug to their teeth working as a protection against impact.
