Paediatric Dentist Ealing, London
Personalized Dental Care For Infants, Kids And Teens
Your child’s first visit to SSS Clinic is not only about our dental team getting to know them, but also about you and your child getting to know our team. In the time we spend together, we encourage you and your child to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything you want us to know to help make their care as individual as they are.
Once their entire dental exam and cleaning is complete, Dr. Mali will talk with you and your child about her findings.
If any treatment is needed, we can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your child’s dental and personal requirements to give your child a smile they deserve in a timeframe you can afford.
Finally, here at SSS clinic we want you to know we will go above and beyond to make your child feel relaxed and safe. Not only is their physical comfort important to us, but their emotional comfort is as well.
Prevention is the best way to a beautiful smile
Children’s dentistry minimises the need for dental treatment in the future by establishing a lifetime habit of optimal oral hygiene care. Dr Mali and her dental team in Ealing, London will provide a friendly consultation with you and your child and ensure that they’re engaged with the importance of personal dental care.
Caring for your child’s teeth
A child’s baby or primary teeth are of great importance. Baby teeth can help pave the way for secondary teeth, enhance speaking ability and chewing function. It is essential to begin caring for your child’s teeth from an early age. You can start caring for your child’s teeth as soon as they start to come through the gums. This will generally be around 6 to 9 months of age. Begin cleaning your child’s teeth with a soft, damp cloth to wipe gently over their teeth. You can start to introduce a children’s toothbrush as soon as you feel your child will accept it.
Your child’s first visit
From the age of 3 we encourage children to attend our practice for a brief visit to become familiar with the dental environment. Your child gets a ride in the dental chair; we count their teeth and have some fun with the dental camera. They will receive a reward for their co-operation and we will encourage them to brush and come see us again in six months. The happy, friendly staff at SSS Clinic in Ealing will make your child feel right at home. Our team always strives to make dental appointments fun!
Our aim for your child
Our aim is to achieve the following five outcomes for your child by the age of 16:
- Your child has all their permanent teeth present
- All the teeth are in the correct place
- The supporting tissues are healthy
- All the back teeth are fissure sealed
- All the teeth are decay free and restored
We look forward to helping you give your child dental health, a gift they will enjoy for the rest of their life.
What does this mean for me as the parent?
For you as the parent, taking your child to the dentist will ensure that getting your children to brush their teeth at home is made easier. You can also benefit from your child having healthier teeth in the future which will be more cost-effective for you.
Prevention is always our main priority
Although we have a broad range of cosmetic dental procedures designed to enhance your smile, it is always ideal to prevent problems from occurring. You can do this by following a regular dental hygiene routine which includes:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day
- Flossing before bed
- Visiting SSS Dental Clinic every 6 months for a check-up
- Complying to any dental advice or treatment (i.e. wearing a retainer)
