Kids Dentist in Wagga Wagga

Booking your Child’s First Appointment:

You can book your child’s very first dental visit as soon as the very first tooth erupts in their oral cavity, or simply, by their first birthday. We know this might seem very young, but it is the perfect age to get them used to seeing a dentist in Wagga Wagga.

This first visit is just an examination to check that their teeth and jaw are developing normally, and to help you with any questions or concerns you might have about keeping their teeth clean at home.

We suggest regular six-monthly visits as a child’s dental health can change quite quickly and regular check-ups allow us to detect any small changes to their oral health.


Preventive Dental Treatments for Children:

Preventive treatments are designed specifically with children in mind include fluoride applications, fissure sealants and mouthguards. We can also provide custom night guards for clenching and grinding.

Fluoride

Fluoride is very important for young teeth and helps to harden tooth enamel, increasing its resistance to decay.

Fissure sealants

Fissure sealants are another great treatment and involve the application of a thin layer of hard-wearing plastic, similar to the material used to fill teeth. This protects the chewing surfaces of back teeth. We can only use this treatment on healthy, cavity-free teeth which is why we suggest applying fissure sealants right after your child’s molars have fully erupted in the oral cavity.

Oral Health Education:

At Kooringal Dental, we are very passionate about dental education. We go the extra mile in making sure we make our procedures, and why they are being performed, easy for patients to understand. We firmly believe that when our patients, both children, as well as adults, fully understand these simply concepts, it becomes easier for them to comply with treatments. We strive to make dental education fun and interesting for children to learn with the help of tips and tricks, to make oral care at home easy and effective.

Please do not forget, we accept the government’s Child Dental Benefit Scheme which provides $700 of essential dental care over a two-year period. We will make sure your child receives maximum benefit from this scheme.
