Childrens Dentistry

Our dedicated children's dentists in Everton Park and Mitchelton can help your child develop good oral care habits for life.

We've designed our Brisbane clinics to be comfortable and welcoming environments, to help children develop positive associations with dental visits. Our paediatric dentists have extensive experience providing dental care for children of all ages, and we can also recommend preventive treatments to help strengthen their teeth against plaque.

If it's been over 6 months since your child last visited the dentist, or you think they might need a treatment, book an appointment at Swish Dental today.

Paediatric dentist Brisbane

Even though milk teeth are going to fall out eventually, they're still vitally important for allowing children to eat and speak normally, and for supporting their developing jaws. Children are also at higher risk of developing tooth decay and cavities than adults because their teeth are smaller, especially if they have a lot of sugar in their diet.

When you book a kids dentist appointment at Swish Dental, our paediatric dentists will examine your child's mouth to look for any signs of problems. We'll then recommend any corrective or preventive treatments we think are needed.

We'll also offer advice and guidance to kids and their parents about how to take the best care of their teeth every day.

Dental care for children

During your consultation with our children's dentists in Brisbane, we'll make sure you have all the information you need about the treatments we offer and what happens during your child's check-up. We're always happy to answer any questions you or your children have.

Childrens Dental Treatments

Caring environment

We want kids to feel happy and relaxed during their dental visits. Our children's dentists in Everton Park and Mitchelton are bubbly and approachable. We use the latest technologies to make check-ups and treatments as quick and minimally invasive as possible.

Oral hygiene and education

If we notice that your child isn't brushing and flossing as well as they could, we'll demonstrate the proper techniques and offer other oral hygiene advice. We'll also ask you or your child about their diet, in case there are any areas for improvement.

Orthodontic assessment

As well as checking that their teeth and gums are healthy, we'll also assess the position of your child's teeth. If we spot signs of crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, we may recommend orthodontic treatment to help prevent problems in the future.

Fluoride treatment

Fluoride helps to strengthen teeth against decay. We can apply a safe level of fluoride to your child's teeth during their check-up and clean appointment, which can help to lower their risk of tooth decay and cavities.

Fissure sealants

Children's back teeth often have small pits and grooves where bacteria can get inside. We can fill these grooves with fissure sealants to provide a barrier against decay. Fissure sealants also release fluoride over time to help strengthen their teeth.

Sports mouth guard

Children's teeth are at risk of injury during school sports and other outdoor activities. Our dentists can provide a custom-fitted mouthguard to offer better protection for their developing teeth than a mouthguard bought in a store.

When should children visit the dentist?

We recommend that your child has their first dental visit by their first birthday, or within 6 months of getting their first tooth. We then recommend visiting every 6 months so our paediatric dentists can monitor their teeth and detect any problems as early as possible.

Child Dental Benefits Scheme

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) helps to make dental care for children more affordable.

If you have children aged 2-17 years old, they may be eligible to receive free dental care up to the value of $1,000 over a 2-year period, as long as you meet the criteria. This usually covers their check-ups and general treatments.

We'll let you know if you can make a claim on the Child Dental Benefits scheme or your insurance when you visit our clinic. We also offer flexible payment plans to help make dental care more affordable for everyone.
