As a practice, we believe that it is vital for children to have good dental health care at an early stage in their lives to ensure that they know the importance of good dental health. This helps ensure good dental health for the rest of their lives. We understand that sometimes this is not achieved and children may require more complex dentistry at a young age from extractions to restorations, which can be very frightening. This is why we have specialist children's dentists (Paediatric Dentist) working with Transform Smiles to ensure a smooth experience.
Sometimes children may also need orthodontic treatment and for this, we will refer the child to our orthodontist. An orthodontist specialises in straightening and moving of teeth. The better positioning will improve appearance, the way that the teeth work together and how the mouth functions. Less strain is placed on the jaw-joints and the surrounding muscles tissue by spreading the workload of biting. Problems in these areas can lead to headaches and joint problems like clicking jaw. Oral health is also is greatly improved because straight teeth are much easier to keep clean!
