Kids Dentistry

Few sights inspire more joy in a parent’s heart than their child’s smile. At Infinite Point Cook Dental, protecting those precious smiles is our top priority. We understand your concerns and strive to deliver gentle care and treatment for your child. Positive dental experiences during childhood promote healthy attitudes towards dental care that will endure into adulthood.

Importance of Childhood Dental Care

Any investment in childhood dental hygiene today will pay dividends in healthy adult smiles. Dental care routines established during childhood create a solid basis for lifelong healthy dental habits. During this critical period, professional dental monitoring and treatment is also essential to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Perhaps surprisingly, these oral health problems can affect even the youngest child’s teeth and mouth.

What to Expect during a Childhood Dental Exam

Ideally your child’s first exam occurs shortly after the first baby teeth begin to erupt. However, it is never too late to start your child on the path to lifelong dental health. Our dentists in Point Cook have experience with young children and the gentle touch required to create positive and happy memories about visits to the dentist. On a typical visit to the dentist, your child’s exam will likely include the following.

  • Examination of existing teeth for potential tooth decay
  • Documentation of the number and positioning of erupted teeth
  • Monitoring jaw development and the placement of unerupted teeth
  • Review of the bite pattern as it develops
Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are a powerful tool to help prevent cavities and tooth decay. This treatment actually creates a coating that fills the grooves and crevices on the surfaces of teeth. Molars are particularly prone to tooth decay as their position in the back of the mouth makes them more difficult to reach during daily brushing. This makes them ideal for treatment with dental sealants. You can think of dental fissure sealants as an extra layer of protection for your child’s teeth. Additionally, preventative treatment with dental sealants is far more economical and less disruptive than restorative treatments like fillings.
