Providing dental care to the younger generation is very important to us here at Vitality, as it is essential to establish a deep rooted sense of importance of oral hygiene from a young age.This ensures that this stays with them for the rest of their life and they then pass this good habit onto their own children.
Although very young children may not have any teeth, it is still important to maintain their gum health, therefore we advise that you register you child as soon as he/she is born. Teething can be a difficult time for young children, but our dentists are here for parents and are able to provide them with information on how to make this time easier for your children. We also offer advise on how to keep your babies mouths healthy and clean with tips such as how to properly clean gum pads.
It is important to introduce your child to the dentist, for routine check ups, from a young age . This is advantageous due to them already being familiar with the dental environment if/when they need treatment, as it is important to us that our patients feel relax and comfortable when they are here.
Our Childsmile Programme
Our Childsmile Programme comes into action when your child comes to the dentist for a check up, he/she is given information on how their teeth grow and develop, and the importance of brushing teeth. The will be provided with a Tooth-Brushing Goody Bag that contains advice leaflets, a toothbrush and toothpaste. Our children’s dentist will also take this opportunity to demonstrate correct tooth brushing technique using a fun, child friendly oversized toothbrush and mouth model. As part of the programme we provide flouride varnish 2-4 times yearly. This highly concentrated fluoride varnish is painted onto the teeth to help strengthen and prevent tooth decay
