Children's Dental Treatment

When your child needs dental treatment, we understand that you want to have complete confidence that their smile and oral health is in the very best hands. We’re committed to treating all our patients as though they are members of our own family, especially our littlest visitors as we know their early experiences can have a big impact on their teeth, mouth and gums thoughout their life.

Our friendly team are patient and understanding when it comes to providing dental treatment for children of all ages. From regular Dental Health Checks, to prevention of damage or decay, we will take the time to fully assess your child and explain everything to you both so we can decide the right approach together.

We provide a range of specialist dental treatments for children here at our Penryn practice. For example, when your child turns 6 or 7, we can help to protect their back teeth from decay by applying fissure sealants. Another treatment to consider is a fluoride varnish to strengthen the enamel. This can be applied to both baby teeth and adult teeth every 6 months, usually from the age of 3 but in some cases we do offer it to younger children.

Other issues that can arise as children grow include tooth loss from injury, and movement of teeth caused by thumb sucking or tongue thrusting while swallowing. Let our experienced team support and guide you as we work together to develop a treatment plan to help your child have a beautiful smile they can be proud of and easily look after.

If your child has had a tooth knocked out, try to gently place the tooth back in the socket. If this isn’t possible, don’t let the tooth dry out. Instead, place it in a clean, sealed container with some milk and give us a call as soon as possible to make an appointment, bringing the tooth with you. Our contact page also gives details of what to do outside of our working hours.

My daughter’s teeth had problems when she was younger, and Donal put a lot of effort into having specialist paediatric treatment, which has resulted in her now having lovely teeth that look really good. I couldn’t recommend you more highly.
