How children feel about visiting the dentist and taking care of their teeth as they grow older can be greatly affected by their early experiences. At Damira, all of our dentists are highly trained and committed to making your child’s dental appointments positive and pain free.

As parents you will naturally take care of your child’s teeth at home by:

  • encouraging regular brushing
  • teaching your child to learn how to brush independently
  • helping them to choose a healthy diet

We want to support you in this by offering any relevant advice and by helping your child to feel comfortable and relaxed whenever they visit us. Together, we can keep your child’s milk teeth strong and healthy so that they last throughout their infancy, and teach them the importance of caring for their adult teeth so that those teeth will last a lifetime.

All Oral Health Review appointments (which are usually only necessary twice each year) are completely FREE for children at Damira. Children are also entitled to FREE NHS treatments with no contribution costs to pay at all. We also offer some private treatments that are suitable for our younger patients, and these are available at heavily discounted rates as part of our commitment to promoting good oral health and hygiene for children at Damira.

Braces for Children

When your child’s permanent teeth start coming in (usually at the age of around 7 years), any overcrowding, overbite or crookedness will quickly start to become apparent.

Preventative Dentistry

Even with the best will in the world, it is possible to miss areas of your child’s teeth when helping them to brush and plaque can build up; small cavities can also develop that are hidden by the enamel and not necessarily visible to the naked eye.

Fissure Sealants

As part of our commitment to preventing tooth decay, we provide your child with fissure sealants. These are thin, plastic coatings that are ‘painted’ onto the biting surfaces of your child’s teeth and act as a layer of protection against decay.
