Children’s Dentistry in Frankston

mom and child in waiting areaYour child’s future smile depends on healthy teeth and gums at a young age. Our family dentists provide age-appropriate care for even the youngest of patients, giving your family the resources necessary to enjoy a lifetime of strong teeth.

Some of the children’s services we provide include:
  • Checkups and Evaluations: Routine monitoring of your child’s oral development allows us to pinpoint concerns when their easier to address and less invasive to treat. Experts recommend all children receive their first dental exam by one year of age.
  • X-rays: Digital imaging allows us to evaluate areas not visible during an exam, such as developing teeth, cavities and orthodontic irregularities.
  • Cleans: Gentle cleanings keep your child’s smile healthy and provide an opportune time to discuss personal oral hygiene.
  • Fluoride: Applying this natural mineral to teeth encourages healthy enamel development and reduces the risk of cavities.
  • Fissure Sealants: Cavity-prone areas such as the deep grooves and pits of back teeth can be sealed, making them easier to clean and less prone to developing decay.
  • Dental Fillings: Cavities can spread rapidly in children, especially in their primary (baby) teeth. Treating them early is the most effective way to avoid any impact on their adult smile.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule Accepted

Qualified children between the ages of 0-17 who receive Medicare benefits can receive coverage on most basic dental services.

This includes checkups, X-rays, cleaning, fissure sealants, extractions, root canals and fillings.
