"Ms Karimi has been my childrens' dentist since they were born, and they all love her and she has always made them feel looked after and reassured."
As dental professionals we believe in preventative dental care and encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age. NHS Dentist has been the chosen dental practice in the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham to lead on a new initiative from NHS England, Starting Well, this is part of the Smile4life programme. The Starting Well initiative aims to reduce oral health inequalities and improve oral health in children under the age of five years.
Regular check-ups from a young age will ensure children don’t suffer from untreated dental decay with devastating effects to their growing dentition. There are a number of preventative treatments that our team can provide for children:
Prevention is always better than cure, so call the practice today to make an appointment for your child.
Fluoride varnish is applied to teeth by your dentist to help prevent decay. It is painted on to the surface of the teeth and contains high levels of fluoride, which strengthen the tooth’s enamel and help to make it more resistant to decay.
Fluoride varnish can be used on both baby and adult teeth and needs to be applied every six months. At our practice we recommend children from the age of three years upwards should have treatment with fluoride varnish to help keep their teeth strong and healthy. Most parents find that it is most convenient to have children treated with fluoride varnish at their six-monthly dental check-ups.
Before treatment starts, your dentist will carry out a thorough assessment of the inside and outside of your child’s mouth to check they are suitable for treatment. If your child has a cold or flu, you may be asked to bring them back to receive treatment when they are better. If they have severe decay and the pulp of the tooth is exposed, this may have to be treated first.
Here’s how it works:
