At Thames Dental & Facial Care all of us have children apart from our Periodontist, Pano, who has a whole new world to enter at some point! This means that we all have an affinity towards children and we do genuinely love looking after young people of all ages.
Good dental habits start from a very young age and help kids grow into adults with healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. This also encourages general health and prevention of diseases such as diabetes or heart disease which are major factors that reduce life expectancy. At Thames Dental & Facial Care, we provide dentistry for the whole family and we encourage patients to bring children with them from a very young age in order to get them used to the dental environment as early as possible. We look forward to developing a caring relationship with the children and getting them used to us. This will make it very easy for them to come in and sit in our dental chair as time goes by.
By the time your child is 2.5 to 3 years old all their baby teeth will have come through in their mouth. We will be happy to examine their teeth and give you advice on how to care for their teeth from the time that they are little and cannot brush their teeth on their own. By the age of six, adult teeth start to come through slowly and they continue to come through until the age of about thirteen (excluding wisdom teeth). The adult teeth are permanent and caring for them is very important as they should last a lifetime. We will provide extensive check -ups for your children which will include orthodontic screening and help them with their oral hygiene. Professional teeth cleaning is also available for children.
Our team is regularly asked to visit local schools and nurseries in order to teach little ones about looking after their teeth because we strongly believe in prevention and in the impact that good dental hygiene habits can have in our general health. Please check out our Denplan payment plans that we have in place for adults and children. They may be suitable for your family and the monthly fees are very affordable and you don’t have to worry about any extra costs.
