Children’s Dentistry

Children’s Dentistry

At Dental Serenity, we aim to provide a comprehensive and long-term approach to treating your children. By focusing on minimal intervention, a comfortable experience we hope to avoid the traditional fears that many adults have towards dentistry. We will also look at your child’s oro-facial growth and may refer to an orthodontist or ENT to ensure your child gets the best head start in life.

Braces or Retainers

If a wire is causing irritation, cover the end of the wire with a small cotton ball or a piece of gauze or soft wax. If a wire is embedded in the cheek, tongue or gum tissue, DO NOT attempt to remove it, visit your orthodontist or contact our practice as soon as possible.

Knocked Out Tooth

If dirty, rinse tooth in milk holding it by the crown (not roots). If not available use water (few seconds only) or have patient suck it clean, and then put the tooth back in the socket. If the tooth cannot be replanted, wrap in Glad Wrap or place it in milk or in the patient’s mouth inside the cheek. Visit us or another dental professional within 30 mins if possible.

There is recent information to suggest that replanting a tooth that has been knocked out can have longer term effects than initially thought. If you are able to replant your tooth, it is wise to have a consultation to discuss the long term care of your tooth as soon as possible.

Broken Tooth

Try to clean debris from the injured area with warm water. If caused by a blow, place a cold compress on the face next to the injured tooth to minimise swelling. Make an appointment to see us a soon as possible.

Bitten Tongue or Lip

Apply direct pressure to bleeding area with a clean cloth. If swelling is present, apply cold compress. If bleeding doesn’t stop readily or the bite is severe, contact us or the hospital.

Objects Wedged Between Teeth

Try to remove the object with dental floss. Guide the floss in carefully so as not to cut the gums, if you cannot remove the object, please contact us for an appointment. One trick that works quite well, is to tie a knot in your floss, then pull that knot through the gap between your teeth. The knot may dislodge the material that is caught.
