Children's Dentistry at Yangebup Dental Centre
Oral hygiene is important in early years, to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Regular Dental check-ups help prevent and treat decay before it causes cavities and toothache.
Children should start to visit the dental practice as young as possible, so bring them along with you to your check-ups. They may be too young for an examination, but the visits help to familiarise them with the surroundings, the smells, noise and most importantly, they meet the dentist.

We give advice on preventive care
We recommend Fissure Sealants in children first and second molars, as most tooth decay starts in the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.
Fissure sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to these grooves, which protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out.
The process of applying sealants is quick and easy, without the need for drilling or removing any tooth structure.
