Dentistry for children
Looking after your children’s teeth
Children should be seen by a dentist on a regular basis, to monitor their teeth as they grow. At Windmill Dental Practice we try to encourage children to become involved in the way they look after their teeth from an early age.
We try to make dentistry fun and non-threatening and use as many preventative methods as we can, such as fissure sealing and careful brushing techniques.
As and when problems do occur, we have the equipment and techniques which help to make dental procedures as easy and as comfortable as possible for children. Two examples of this are the Wand, which is a small computer-controlled device which places anaesthetic in the gum as painlessly as possible, and air abrasion, which is a much gentler alternative to drilling.
