Children’s fissure sealants
Carisbrook Dental is at the forefront of technology, and that’s why we can provide the latest techniques, treatments and procedures for your child. One treatment that we feel is particularly beneficial is fissure sealant treatment. In a nutshell, a fissure sealant is a coating manufactured from plastic which we apply to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The idea behind this is that the sealant serves to protect the child from food getting trapped in tiny grooves or fissures on the surface of their teeth and causing tooth decay. The improvement is extremely tangible – this treatment protects your child from all sorts of decay and disease.
Brushing and cleaning children’s teeth
We’re very big on dental hygiene; as we stated, we’d far rather prevent than intervene, and the younger a child is when they learn how to look after their teeth and gums, the more likely it is that they will have a healthier mouth. Our friendly and helpful hygienists are there to assist your child in learning about dental hygiene. They’ll teach them how to effectively brush their teeth and all about the importance of flossing and brushing their tongue. We also believe in the importance of Fluoride in tooth decay prevention, we regularly apply fluoride to at risk children’s teeth to prevent cavities.
We appreciate that children may be scared of the dentist and we empathise with that, we will never rush or boss your children and always treat them with respect. We will give your child and you the parent/guardian time to make any decisions that may need to be made after we have provided all the necessary information. We make provision for nervous child patients – such as the ‘the wand’ (a pain-free way of administering dental injections), in order to make your child’s visit as pain and stress free as possible.
Quite simply, Carisbrook Dental is the right choice for your child.
