Putney Dental Surgery on Charles (behind florist)


Introduction to a children’s dentist at an early age (around 3 or 4 years) allows them to develop positive associations with going to the dentist and they will know what to expect.

An ideal time to make that first visit is when they don’t need emergency treatment but just a routine checkup. During a simple examination we can make their first experience an enjoyable one with the creation of trust and confidence.

We encourage development of healthy dental habits in the first few years of your child’s growth. Dental sealant applied on newly erupted second teeth seal the deep fissures with a protective coating and prevents tooth decay.

Mouth guards are available in a range of colours.

Creating a dental routine early can ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles for your child. Baby teeth are important teeth, and cavity prevention starts even before the first tooth appears. By teaching your children the benefits of brushing and flossing, you are putting them on a course to a healthy mouth for life.

Did you know that more than forty percent of children have at least one cavity by the time they are eleven, and that number increases to nearly sixty percent by the time they are nineteen years old? Why should you care? Tooth decay can destroy tooth structure in permanent teeth, and untreated tooth decay can lead to pain, infection and lost school days.

Regular checkups will help reinforce good dental habits and prevent dental problems in the future, enabling us to monitor your child’s teeth as they grow. Orthodontic needs can be discussed and referrals provided if required

Some children may require more specialist care particularly where they have already been through traumatic experiences, or if their dental decay is so extensive that procedure is complicated and painful. In such cases your child may be referred to a specialist children’s dentist.
