Frequently Asked Questions
Children can be seen at any age. Very young children may not wish to sit in the dental chair but it can still be beneficial for them to watch parents or siblings receiving non threatening treatment. We often start with small steps, perhaps sitting on a parents lap, having teeth counted then getting a sticker. An enjoyable experience can make it much easier for them to cope with dental treatment when they are older.
Examinations normally last about 20 minutes.
This is different for every patient. Depending on your age and diet and your existing dental restorations suggested examination recall intervals are between 4 months to 2 years. How often you may need a scale and polish can also vary. Your dentist will advise you on a suggested period.
