A child’s first visit to a dentist is often scary for the child and challenging for the parents. Paediatric Dentistry is the practice of comprehensive and therapeutic oral health care designed especially for children from birth to adolescence.
Paediatric dentists offer specialised dental services to children with oral issues and dental development problems, including anxious children and those with special needs. They can also manage preventative dental care including cleaning and fluoride treatments, the damage sustained to teeth and the mouth following traumatic injury and take part in the multidisciplinary care of children with complex problems such as cleft lip and palate, hypodontia, or those who have a medical condition which may impact on their oral health.
At Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital, our highly skilled paediatric dentists and friendly dental staff create a safe and comfortable environment to make each child’s visit educational and fun, ensuring a positive experience and healthy smiles for our young patients.
