Children's Dentistry

At Tumut Dental Clinic, we enjoy treating children and giving them a real head start when it comes to their oral care. Dr Khumo Tlhalerwa, your dentist in Tumut, recommends bringing your child in for his or her first dental visit around the age of one, which typically corresponds with initial tooth eruption.

During this initial dental visit, we take our time with your child to ensure their confidence in the dental clinic and environment. We may give them a ride in the dental chair or count their teeth. Additionally, we make the exam fun, so he or she looks forward to the next dental visit.

Our approach to children’s dentistry in Tumut means providing individualised care to each child based on their specific needs. Our dentistry is also designed to evolve as your child’s needs change. 

 

Children’s Dentistry with Your Dentist in Tumut

Before you know it, rides in the dental chair become routine dental exams and professional teeth cleans. As your child grows, your dentist in Tumut introduces age-appropriate services, including:

  • Preventive exams—to catch small issues before they turn into costly dental problems
  • Professional teeth cleans—to clear away the debris that can lead to tooth decay
  • Digital x-rays when needed—to spot hidden dental health issues
  • Fluoride treatments and dental sealants—to strengthen your child’s teeth against cavities
  • Pre-orthodontics, including Myobrace®—to guide your child’s teeth into straight positions

When it comes to children’s dentistry in Tumut, NSW, Dr Tlhalerwa pays attention to detail and sees to the health and appearance of your child’s teeth as he or she ages into adulthood.

We also treat dental emergencies, and we always welcome your call if your child has a toothache or tooth trauma. Additionally, we offer same-day emergency treatment for existing patients, or those looking to become patients of record.

Your dentist in Tumut, NSW recommends annual preventive dental appointments for children, but he may alter this recommendation if your child has specific oral health concerns.
