Good oral care at a young age is an investment in children’s health that will stay with them for life. Children with healthy mouths have higher confidence, can eat their food properly and learn to speak more quickly and clearly. Healthy teeth also provide confidence and a higher self-esteem.
At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we value preventive dental care and for this reason our dentist in Harley Street strives to prevent problems from forming in the first place. Through regular dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants, we try to prevent the onset, progress, and recurrence of common dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Moreover, laser dentistry is our way of ensuring that children have a comfortable time when visiting the dentist in Harley Street.
Preventive oral care
Fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel. For most children, the proper use of fluoride toothpaste will be sufficient to help prevent decay. However, children at high risk of developing tooth decay, who do not have access to fluoridated water, may benefit from fluoride applications or fluoride mouth rinse in addition to a regular fluoride toothpaste.
Dental sealants can also be directly applied to the teeth, sealing the surface and protecting it from harmful bacteria. Sealants are easy to apply and are not painful at all. Your dentist in Harley Street will clean and dry the teeth and apply the sealants directly on the biting surface. Once they harden, they create a protective coating that keeps bacteria causing dental decay away from the teeth.
At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we also use laser dentistry in order to offer children a more comfortable experience. Unlike common dentistry procedures, laser dentistry is designed to offer fast recovery, less pain and shorter treatment times. It is perfect for children since no drills are required, while at the same time injections and anaesthesia are dramatically reduced. When treating dental decay, the laser removes the decay very gently, leaving more of the healthy tooth unaffected.
