What we advise

Fluoride applications are a safe and effective way to safeguard your growing child’s teeth from developing decay. The fluoride is painted onto the surface of the child’s teeth and this helps to mineralise the teeth. Fissure sealants are tooth coloured and applied to biting surfaces of children’s teeth to prevent decay.

Treating a child with orthodontics children’s dentistry from an early age also allows the dentist to spot early signs of underbites, crossbites or overbites developing. As with most things, the sooner you can start to treat it, the quicker it can be resolved.
