Children’s Dentistry

Here at Westbury Dental Care & Implant Centre, we offer a range of children’s dental treatments.  We truly believe in creating a welcoming and relaxing environment that children can feel at ease in and therefore form a positive association with a visit to the dentist.  It’s imperative for children to start visiting the dentist for examinations and check-ups from an early age so they can learn about the importance of dental health, hygiene and best practices.  Examinations and check-ups that we offer for children can help detect any early signs of tooth decay.

Choosing a local dentist for your children should be carefully considered.  Here at Westbury Dental Care & Implant Centre, we are here for life, not just today.  Get in touch with our professional and friendly team today to find out more about our treatments for children by calling us directly on 020 8942 8943.

Dedicated to dental excellence, creating healthy brighter smiles.

Fluoride Varnish for children

It’s important for children to be offered fluoride varnish application at least twice yearly from the age of two.  Fluoride Varnish provides extra protection against tooth decay, in addition to brushing daily.  From a younger age, children are much more likely to suffer and develop tooth decay as a result of grinding or clenching their mouths.  The varnish that we apply is a pale yellow gel that sets quickly when applied to children’s teeth, using a soft brush.  Children often enjoy this treatment as the varnish has a fruity and tasty smell!

The application of Fluoride Varnish is really simple and normally doesn’t take any longer than five minutes.  We use a soft and small dental brush where the Fluoride Varnish will then be painted on top and on the sides of each tooth.  The Fluoride Varnish that we use at Westbury Dental Care and Implant Centre is a varnish that is used worldwide in thousands of dental practices.

The importance of children dentistry from an early age

The sooner children begin getting regular dental check-ups, the healthier their mouths will stay throughout their lives.  Early check-ups help to prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to pain, trouble concentrating and other medical issues.  Furthermore, it’s essential to get children getting used to a visit to the dentist from an early age as this clearly shows them that it’s of high importance.  By visiting us regularly, we can spot any early signs of infections and also start teaching best practices to look after teeth for the long-term.  We try to make things as fun as we can with children so that they enjoy their experience with us.
