Family Dentistry Treatments
At Cherrybank Dental Spa, we believe in the same levels of excellent care for children as we do for adults. Many of our patients choose to have all the Family Dentistry treatments provided by our talented team – some across three generations and occasionally four.
We aim to share all the latest knowledge about maintaining lifelong dental health with you and your family. We utilise leading-edge technology to provide gentle diagnosis and, if necessary, treatment – and we have an excellent success rate, even with the most reluctant of patients.
An introduction to the Dental Experience – Happy Visits
Dental care begins with a Happy Visit for children aged under five. This helps to introduce them to dental care by making it fun. The visit consists of an appointment with one of our dental therapists, including introducing the dental experience and advice on care and future needs.
We recommend Happy Visits from around the age of two-and-a-half, but we are happy to look at your children’s teeth or give advice from any age.
We have a combined visit with the dental therapist or hygienist and the dentist for the over-fives. Necessary radiographs or X-rays will be prescribed at appropriate intervals to check that all the adult teeth are developing normally and screen for any tooth decay.
We also provide the following preventive treatments:
- Fluoride treatment to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay
- Gold standard fissure sealants when the adult molars come in, around six years old
- Screening orthodontic examination to check for the correct development of the bite and tooth/jaw size harmony
Oral Health Instruction to develop good habits and prevent gum disease in later life.
Braces & Invisalign Teen
As children lose all their baby teeth, we check for the appropriate time to intervene with braces if required. Invisalign Teen is an extremely popular brace for teenagers, very discreet and championed by the likes of Justin Bieber. Many teenagers have been delighted by Invisalign Teen as an alternative to fixed orthodontic braces or ‘train tracks’.
Providing Second Opinions
We are often asked for, and are pleased to provide, second opinions for children who may have been having routine care elsewhere. Our philosophy is always to save baby teeth if at all possible. If they have to be lost, we utilise treatments such as space maintainers, which are popular in other countries like the USA, to hold the space for the adult teeth to come in. We only use white fillings and never amalgam (silver) fillings if fillings are needed.
