Childrens Dentistry in London

There’s no doubt that a great smile can help you make a strong first impression. A parents who want the best for their kids should certainly start thinking about their little ones’ dental care from an early age.

Here at Museum Dental Suites, we offer a wide range of childrens dentistry services, and we’ve worked hard to create a welcoming and friendly environment where kids can feel at ease.

Common questions about kids' dental care

It’s not unusual for parents to have a lot of questions about how to take care of their children’s teeth. Here we answer some of the most frequently asked questions and we’ll always be happy to provide advice and guidance when your child visits the dentist.

When should I start brushing my child’s teeth?

It’s a good idea to get kids used to the feeling of brushing their teeth from as early an age as possible. This means that you can start cleaning their gums with a soft-bristled brush even before the milk teeth (baby teeth) start to come through.

Is it safe to use products that contain fluoride?

As soon as your little one’s first milk tooth comes through, you should start brushing their teeth with a fluoride toothpaste – this is usually at around six months of age. The fluoride will help to decrease the build-up of plaque and tartar and will also prevent tooth decay.

For children under the age of three, just use a light smear of family toothpaste that contains at least 1,000ppm of fluoride. Kids between the ages of three and six can use a blob of toothpaste that’s about the size of a pea.

Teach your children from early on not to eat or lick the toothpaste and encourage them to spit out the toothpaste without rinsing with a lot of water. Always supervise kids under the age of seven or eight when they’re brushing their teeth.

At what age should my child first visit the dentist?

Most dental professionals recommend that kids get regular check-ups at the dentist from an early age – and at least once before they turn two years old.

Beginning at such a young age can help to establish good dental care as a habit and will give your dentist an opportunity to look for potential problems from an early stage. What’s more, they will be able to answer any questions that you may have about the proper care of your child’s teeth.

Types of children's dental treatments

With consistent dental care, many kids only require routine examinations and the occasional cleaning to keep their teeth healthy throughout childhood. Fissure sealants and fluoride varnishes may also be recommended to help prevent tooth decay.

Of course, fillings are often a normal part of growing up and, while this can be a scary experience for a little one, a good children’s dentist can help to alleviate their fears and keep pain to a minimum.

For kids whose teeth are not aligned properly, treatments can also be carried out to straighten their teeth – braces are a common option, but there are many other types of orthodontic treatments that may also be utilised. Again, having a professional who specialises in children’s dentistry can make the process much easier for both the kids and their parents.

reviews-star.pngHave been coming to museum dental to see Dr Shakir for 4/5 years now, can’t stress enough how happy I am to have found this practice. The results of my Invisalign are perfect, and all the future treatments I’ve had with him have all been excellent and painless. If you’re in need of dental treatment please don’t bother going anywhere but Museum. Thanks to Dr Shakir and his team.

reviews-star.pngThe Museum Dental Suites team’s availability, warmth, and high-quality care in a very stressful and challenging dental emergency situation was incredible. We were in the city for a short time just days before I had to deliver a presentation at a large conference in Berlin when a crown on a live tooth came loose! Of course, this was on a Saturday evening to boot. In short, the team was able to get us in the next morning, get my crown not just comfortably but securely re-seated for the duration of the trip, literally making it possible to complete our journey safely and happily.
