Children’s Dentist in Inner West Sydney

Regular dental care in childhood helps to grow a healthy adult smile!

Your Smile Centre Welcomes Young Smiles

Caring for your child’s smile early can make a huge difference to their oral health later in life. At Your Smile Centre, our highly experienced dentists give Inner West Sydney families the information they need to encourage proper tooth development.

We will also explain how to make good diet choices for your child’s teeth and how to keep their smile healthy and strong.

Bulk Billed* Children’s Dentistry

Did you know your child may be eligible for up to $1000 worth of bulk billed general and restorative dentistry treatments under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)?

The Medicare CDBS is a government scheme that is available to children aged between two and seventeen years old. Generally, if you receive Family Tax Benefit A your child is eligible for the CDBS.

If you’re not sure your child is eligible, please go to the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule website or talk to one of our friendly Front Office Coordinator and we’ll be happy to check for you.

Your Child’s First Dental Visit

We recommend bringing your child in for checkups at an early age. When your baby’s first tooth becomes visible or they reach 12months old, whichever comes first. By the age of 3, most children can sit alone and enjoy ride up and down in the exam chair.

Our capable and caring team wants your child’s experience to be one that’s enjoyable from start to finish. As a parent or caregiver, you will be equipped with proven techniques to help safeguard your child’s smile before problems have a chance to develop.

Dental Treatments for Children

Should your child have any signs of tooth decay, we recommend treating it before it spreads to other teeth. If care is delayed, it can impact the health or eruption of adult teeth underneath.

A small filling, pulpotomy or even a crown can help you to preserve your child’s tooth so that it is not lost prematurely. However, if a baby tooth does need to be pulled, we will recommend a space maintainer to accommodate proper tooth spacing. Some of our children’s dental treatments include:

  • Dental Checkups – Our gentle children’s dentist enjoys working with kids of all ages. We make their checkup fun, so they look forward to seeing us again.
  • Gentle Cleanings – Gentle cleans remove any plaque and ensure your child’s teeth and gums are strong and healthy.
  • Fissure Sealants – Dental Fissure sealants may be required if your child’s back molars have deep grooves, or if they are at risk of a cavity.
  • Fillings – Our dental fillings are safe, non-toxic and gentle for children. If your child has a cavity, it’s important to treat it right away.
  • Fluoride Treatments – Our safe fluoride treatments help the children’s enamel stay healthy and strong.
  • Mouthguards – If your child plays contact sport, we can safeguard their smile with a custom sports mouthguard. They can even pick their favourite colour!

Schedule a Checkup and Clean Every Six Months

Most of our healthy patients benefit from a preventative clean every six months. These visits allow us to intervene before problems have a chance to become more involved or expensive to treat.

We will share vital nutritional and oral hygiene information with you so that you can help your child experience the best dental health possible.
