Need help taking care of your child’s smile?
Explore our general dental services designed for little smiles.
Even with early dental check-ups, regular cleaning and at home care, and the very best preventative care from your dentist, your child may require dental treatment at some point in their childhood or teenage years.
At Sparkle Dental in Perth, we’ll brighten your child’s smile with general dental services designed especially for little smiles.
All dental treatments for children are performed in a safe, calming and non-threatening environment, and we encourage parents to remain in the room with their children during the course of treatment.
Depending on the treatment, and any anxiety or fears your child may be experiencing, you may wish to consider laughing gas to help calm, relax and relieve any potential pain. Laughing gas, (nitrous oxide) elevates mood and evokes a sense of general wellbeing, helping make your child’s early dental experiences positive ones.
Kid’s General Dental Services include:
Dental check-ups and cleaning
Regular dental check-ups and cleaning help ensure the best oral health for your child.
Fissure seals are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of your child’s teeth and are known to prevent cavities.
Crowns and fillings
Designed to repair minor to moderate tooth damage, a filling will make your child’s smile safer from additional decay and healthier. A crown may be needed for more extensive decay.
Teeth extractions are sometimes necessary due to severe decay or crowding.
Essential for children when playing sport, mouthguards help protect your child’s teeth.
Some treatments may require your dentist to examine your child’s teeth and take radiographic imaging and photos, to plan for the best possible outcome.
We reserve appointments every day for dental emergencies, exclusively, ensuing we can always help you when in urgent need. Dental emergencies include toothache, dental access, broken or chipped teeth, avulsed tooth, knocked out tooth, losing a filling or dislodging a crown.
Don’t wait. Call us to book an emergency appointment for your child.
Growth monitoring is important for children. The development of a child’s face and jaw to genetic potential determines facial beauty and profile, lifetime TMJ health and a proper airway development as well as position and alignment of teeth.
One of our dentist’s, Dr Shereen Lim, has additional training in the areas of dental sleep medicine and tongue-tie release for infants, and uses interceptive treatments to allow children to maximise their growth curves, through instilling the correct breathing and sleep practices. This encourages ideal jaw development which will then hopefully minimise any teeth malalignments, but more importantly, allowing the child to thrive avoiding possible issues later in life such as obstructive sleep apnoea.
If you’re an existing patient and don’t feel quite ready to book an appointment for your child, you can simply arrange to come in for an offer orientation rides in the dental chair for your child.
They’ll see how it feels to sit in the dentist chair, in a fun and relaxed way, and enjoy stickers and even prizes for being so brave.
