At Ringley Park, our dentist Agi has a special interest in children’s dentistry and in helping children to feel positive about their oral health. She also particularly enjoys helping children with special needs to feel comfortable getting the dental care they need. Agi works alongside visiting consultant David Baldwin, who is a Specialist Paediatric Dentist.
Coming to the dentist regularly from an early age helps children develop a healthy approach to their oral care and a positive attitude towards dental visits. Unfortunately, children sometimes have a negative idea of dentists and are reluctant to attend. This is even more problematic for children with special needs, whose parents might feel hesitant to bring them in. Rest assured that we are properly trained and experienced in helping all children, even those with special challenges, to achieve and maintain excellent dental health.
We place great emphasis on preventive care and consider their needs and concerns, along with those of their carers/parents, when developing any treatment plans. In addition to general dental interventions such as fillings when required, we offer preventive treatments such as fissure sealants to keep their teeth healthy, as well as children's orthodontics.
The biting surfaces of teeth contain deep grooves, which can trap food debris. These surfaces can be protected with the application of a fissure sealant; a plastic, colourless protective liquid. This makes the surface smoother, easier to clean and reduces the incidence of decay.
Seeing children from a young age enables us to teach the benefits of good dental care and oral hygiene and to observe development of the jaws and bite. If there is a problem, early intervention using orthodontics or functional jaw orthopaedics can help produce healthy jaws, straight teeth and a beautiful smile.
