CHILDREN'S DENTISTRY

dentist_relaxed_family
The whole iDental team love seeing our younger patients and caring for their oral health. Bringing your children in with you to your appointment helps familiarise them with our practice environment so they’ll be more relaxed when having their check-up. Dr. D’Anna has children herself, and understands the importance of patience, care and the extra TLC that children need.

General Dental, Cleans, Prevention and Fillings
Having regular check and cleans is important as children develop their oral cleaning habits, and whilst their bite is developing. Aside from this, children are able to learn that dental visits can be fun, and they get to know the iDental team, just like we are family.
When dental work is needed, we show a lot of care, and always explain in simple terms to the child, what we are doing, why we are doing it and how it will feel. We are very comfortable placing sealants in children's teeth when needed, and are happy to provide sports mouthguards. We also participate in the Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS).

Fissure Sealants
Sealants are a safe and painless way of protecting your teeth from dental decay. A sealant is a protective plastic coating, which is applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay. Sealants are only applied to the back teeth - the molars and premolars. These are the teeth that have ‘pits' (small hollows) and ‘fissures' (grooves) on their biting surfaces. Your dental team will tell you which teeth should be sealed after they have examined them, and checked whether the fissures are deep enough for sealing to help. Some teeth naturally have deep grooves which will need to be sealed; others have shallow ones which will not need sealing. The process is usually quick and straightforward, taking only a few minutes for each tooth. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned, prepared with a special solution, and dried. The liquid sealant is then applied and allowed to set hard - usually by shining a bright light onto it.
