At The Mall Stockport, we are committed to your oral health and that of your family. We offer preventive dental services for children of all ages and we aim to protect their teeth from cavities and gum disease. Our dentist in Stockport will help your child to avoid damage from dental decay with teeth cleanings, fluoride varnish or dental sealants, as well as patient education. When you visit our practice, we will make your child feel comfortable and engage them throughout the treatment.
We usually recommend that you bring your child into our dental practice every six months or so, so they can have their teeth cleaned thoroughly by our friendly dental team. Our dentist at The Mall Stockport will remove plaque and bacteria hiding between their teeth or under their gum line. By visiting Unidental for routine teeth cleanings, we can spot problems early on, and prevent them from developing into more severe issues.
Fluoride applications and dental sealants
Once your child has their first teeth, your dentist at The Mall Stockport may recommend that they receive fluoride varnish treatments to help prevent tooth decay. This can be done two to four times per year and the number of treatments depends on how likely it is that your child may get a cavity. On the other hand, dental sealants are plastic coatings, which are placed on top of the back teeth to protect them from bacteria and acids that cause tooth decay. In some cases, both treatments may be combined. While fluoride helps prevent decay, dental sealants add extra protection for the grooved and pitted areas.
Educating your children
Our experienced dentists will also teach your child brushing and flossing that will help them to keep cavities and tooth decay at bay. If your child gets into the habit of brushing and flossing their teeth daily, they will enjoy healthy teeth for a lifetime.
