Kid's Dentistry
The experiences that a child has at the dentist can affect the way they feel about dental visits throughout their lifetime.

When a child is fully prepared for what will happen during their visit, whether it is a routine check-up and cleaning or more extensive work, the stage is set for proactive dental care into adulthood and beyond.

Some dentists specialise in pediatric dentistry, but a child can feel comfortable going to the same dentist as their parents. That way they are able to coordinate visits and develop an ongoing relationship with their dentist from an early age. Springhill Clinic dentists are used to working with children and can accommodate them.

At Springhill Clinic, we promise to make each experience better than the first – for both parent and child. After completion of the initial exam, each child’s parent has a chance to meet the doctor to discuss the status of their child’s oral health, as well as options for any advanced or “operative” work that may be needed. In most cases, our dentists will be able to complete services on the same day.
At the end of the appointment, our dentists meet with the parents to give a detailed description of the work completed, provide after care instructions, issue prescriptions if needed, and answer any questions that the parent may have. Wherever you choose to take your child, it is important for the parent or guardian as well as the dental professionals to consider the visit from a child’s point of view.
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic "coating" is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively "seals" the deep grooves acting as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can't reach. Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
