Children

It is important that young children establish good habits. This includes cleaning thoroughly twice daily and visiting the dentist at least every 6 months. Diet also plays an important part and you can help your child help their teeth by finding alternatives to sugary snacks and fizzy drinks.

As they get older they will start to lose their first set of teeth and we can start to see their adult teeth come through. Sometimes these will need straightening by an orthodontist. We can provide invisible braces using the Clear Aligners system at Dorking Dental Centre and we have a good referral system with other local orthodontists if you would like a more traditional brace.

Prevention is better than cure. Sometimes new teeth can be sharp and trap food, creating a potential “rot spot”. We can protect childrens’ teeth from this by putting a seal across them called a Fissure Sealant.
