Children's Dental Treatment by a Dentist Near Me in London

What is Children’s Dentistry?

Our focus at Ruh dental is on prevention and part of this is instilling good habits into children about oral health from a very young age. This is achieved through making the experience a positive one from their very first visit. This helps us build trust, and build a relationship which help maintain good oral health for a lifetime.

Dental decay in children is very common and recent surveys have shown that one in four children have some element tooth decay ¹. This can pose many problems such as pain, difficulty sleeping, days missed at school and missed days of work for parents.

Whilst treating the decay is part of the solution, our goal is to educate and inform all of our patients to help prevent tooth decay and maintain good oral health. Education about dietary habits, nutrition and fluoride advice are a key part of this process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Children should be seen at the dentist as soon as the teeth begin to erupt. This is to ensure that they are maintaining good oral hygiene habits, there is no decay and they’re no problems with missing teeth or crooked teeth. Misaligned teeth are very common and can result in crowded teeth and bite discrepancies. If these are picked up early on they can be treated much more straightforwardly without having extensive (and often costly) orthodontic treatment later on in life.

The most important factors which are related to tooth decay are diet, toothbrushing and the use of fluoride toothpaste. 

Frequent snacking of sugary foods can result in tooth decay. Eating healthy and in moderation is the best advice that we can give. Even fruits in excessive consumption can result in tooth erosion due to their acidity.

Toothbrushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste removes the plaque debris and harmful bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. Furthermore, fluoride increases the resistance of teeth to decay.

Children have fewer teeth than adults and are much smaller in size. Due to their anatomy they are more susceptible to decay which is why it is very important to attend a dentist regularly, ensure the diet isn’t rich in sugary foods and that they brush regularly twice a day with a fluoride based toothpaste.
