At New Lambton Family Dental, our general dentists also see children, and they take children’s dental care very seriously. We want your child to have the best head-start when it comes to a healthy smile. This is why our compassionate team works hard to instil healthy oral habits in children from the beginning.
In our New Lambton, NSW dental clinic, we treat your child the way we would treat our own child, and we want nothing but the best for the little smiles that visit our dental clinic.
Preventive Dentistry from the First Visit
The first step to helping children gain a good understanding of dentistry and the importance of good oral hygiene habits is eliminating fear and anxiety.
From the first visit, our team begins building a relationship with your child. This means we instil trust and help to relieve fear by talking to them about their teeth and the various dental instruments in our dental clinic. The first visit means our team gets to know your child, and your child gets to know us. We engage, educate and listen to your child who may have many questions.
We will show them proper tooth brushing techniques even if they do require parental assistance until around the age of eight.
We also let you know what to expect as your child grows and their baby teeth become permanent teeth, and we always take time to answer your questions and address your concerns.
Dentistry as Your Child Ages
As your child ages, preventive dentistry may expand from exams, cleans and periodic x-rays to fluoride treatments, dental sealants, mouth guards, fillings and other specific treatments to keep their teeth consistently healthy.
Our New Lambton, NSW dentists will always take time to explain your child’s oral health or why a specific treatment has been recommended.
Comfortable Dentistry for Your Child
Our compassionate general dentists use a topical anesthetic to numb the skin before using an injected anesthetic. We don’t want children to be afraid of the dentist, and often they do not even realise they’ve had an injection. They simply feel the numbness before and during dental work.
Invisible Braces for Older Teens
At New Lambton Family Dental, we offer Invisalign to older teens and adults who want straight teeth without the cumbersome metal and brackets associated with traditional braces.
Invisalign clear aligners are made from smooth plastic, and they are changed out every few weeks to straighten teeth gradually.
Invisalign in New Lambton, NSW can be removed when eating or drinking. Your teen can also remove his or her aligners when brushing and flossing.
We will let you know how long your teen should wear aligners and how often, but generally Invisalign should be worn at least 22 hours per day.
We Are Committed to Your Child’s Dental Health
We invite you to book an appointment for your child at New Lambton Family Dental.
