Treatments for kids toothaches & braces on the Sunshine Coast
Even as a child’s first teeth start coming through, around the age of 2, it is recommended to visit Fenton Dental’s dentists or an oral health specialist for an assessment. They know this can be a nervous process for parents but getting started early tracking the child’s dental growth prevents future problems.
Fenton Dental’s dentists have experience dealing with children of all ages and they do their best to make any dental treatment relaxing and pain-free. Book in for a simple visual inspection to get the child used to sitting in the dentist’s chair. They will take this chance to educate parents and their children how to keep their teeth and gums clean and healthy.
Braces & Adult Teeth
As a child’s adult teeth come through, their regular dentist will continue to assess their development and make sure they are growing straight and aligned. If there are any issues, they may recommend an orthodontic treatment, such as braces or Invisalign. Though children may be hesitant to get braces because of their appearance, the long-term cosmetic and health improvements are incredibly significant. Thanks to modern technology, many orthodontic devices are very discreet and comfortable.
Child Dental Benefits Scheme
At Fenton Dental, most of their services are covered by the Child Dental Benefits Scheme, including check-ups and cleans as well as general or emergency dental treatments. This bulk-billed government scheme means patients can claim against any of these services if the immediate family is covered by Medicare and Family Tax Benefit Part A.
