London City Smiles

London City Smiles’ approach to Children’s Dental Health

No matter your age, looking after your teeth is one of life’s essentials. Although baby teeth come and go, ensuring your child’s mouth and gums are healthy is essential for their overall health and wellbeing. After all, poor dental hygiene can cause your children to lose sleep and experience general discomfort. So, with that in mind, we introduce you to our approach to children’s dental health below and explain why our considerate and skilled dentists are perfectly positioned to care for your child’s teeth. 


Our approach explained 

A trip to the dentist is anxiety-inducing for most children. At London City Smiles, we do everything we can to ensure your child receives the dental care they need in a calm, safe, and compassionate environment. All of our dentists are highly skilled and considerate and will keep your child calm throughout the process. We also educate your children on the importance of maintaining good dental health and hygiene throughout their young lives, reinforcing many of the important parenting messages around regular brushing, flossing, and avoiding sugary foods and drinks.


Slow dentistry 

Something that makes London City Smiles stand out from the crowd is our slow dentistry approach when treating children and adults. Our dentists never rush and take time and care throughout your appointment. Whether your kids are visiting us for a regular checkup or a tooth extraction, our dentists take their time and ensure your children are at ease throughout the entire process. Given that a trip to the dentist can be stressful for your children, we do everything in our power to make sure the experience is as hassle-free and relaxing as possible. 


Why it’s important to take your kids to see the dentist 

Even if your children express fear about visiting the dentist, it’s important not to ignore their dental health. The first few years of your child’s life are so important for their development in so many ways, and their teeth are no exception. The reasons why it’s important for your children to visit the dentist regularly include: 

  • Treatment of dental trauma caused by falls, small injuries, or accidents. 
  • Teeth removal when baby teeth fail to fall out naturally. 
  • Identification of dental abnormalities so a long-term solution can be identified (braces, retainers, etc.). 
  • Issues with gums, lips, cheeks, or tongue. 
  • Education regarding optimal dental hygiene for your children. 

Even if there’s nothing wrong with your kids’ teeth, we recommend scheduling an appointment with a dentist at the same time as you visit for your regular checkups. This will ensure their gums and teeth develop properly and without issues or pain.
