Develop good dental habits for life…

“Our aim is for your child to grow up with happy dental experiences – a smile free of fillings – and to develop good dental habits for life”.

The whole team at Elstead Dental Surgery works at making each visit a positive and enjoyable experience. We encourage children to familiarise themselves with the dental environment from a very early age. This helps them to become relaxed and used to the sights and sounds of a dental practice.
Examinations are FREE for children under the age of sixteen, if one of the parents is a regular attender.

Our preventative approach towards children’s dentistry includes fluoride treatments, fissure sealants, oral hygiene guidance and dietary advise to help your child develop strong healthy teeth for life.

Why not try a fun brushing app to encourage better brushing!

  • – Fluoride varnish is recommended every 6 months by Department of Health. Did you know that the water in our area is not fluoridated and thus extra fluoride is needed to protect the newly developed teeth? Fluoride varnish is recommended every 6 months for Department of Health and even more frequently if your child has had tooth decay is primary dentition.
  • – Fissure sealants are permanent plastic coatings, which are applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing tooth decay.
  • – It is important to wear a professionally made mouthguard whenever you play sport that involves physical contact of moving objects (e.g. cricket, hockey, rugby). A mouthguard will protect against tooth fractures as well as against broken and dislocated jaws. A professionally made mouthguard will be measured and properly fitted by your dentist. We offer a range of colours to choose from.
