It’s never too early to begin teaching your young ones good oral hygiene. From when their teeth first start to come through as babies and toddlers, it is important for them to develop good dental habits. Visiting the dentist is rarely a favourite activity for any child. However, dentistry for children is a crucial part of their childhood and if not looked after it can cause significant oral health problems in the long term.
Dentistry for children is not only about having regular dental examination, clean and preventative care. It is also about helping to learn the benefits of proactively taking care of their oral health by our child friendly dentists in Macleod. Dental treatment for children is usually available to kids even as young as one year old or from the time they start developing teeth.
Our dentists also participate in Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). CDBS scheme is available only for eligible children aged between 2 to 17 year’s up to 1000$. They can be bulk billed for procedures like checkup’s, x-rays, clean, fissure seals, fluoride, fillings, extraction and root canal treatment.
We also provide Myobrace treatment that helps to correct breathing and functional habits in a growing child.
Our children’s dentistry services are friendly and fun, they will assist in helping your child form excellent dental habits and behaviours for life. Book an appointment to see one of our child friendly dentists at The Dental Retreat.
