Children’s Dentistry Relaxed & friendly practice in Ipswich

We regard children as very special patients and do everything to make their visits as enjoyable as possible. Our aim is to help them form good dental habits which will prevent problems with their teeth in later life. We will make sure every treatment is gentle and effective and stress free as possible.

During your first consultation we will carry out a very careful and gentle assessment in a relaxed and friendly manner.

Any treatment will be carefully explained to both the child and their parents before any dental treatment goes ahead.

Common paediatric dental treatments include: cleaning and removing of decay, fillings and hypoplasia, which is a relatively common condition where the dental enamel is hard, but thin, leaving the teeth vulnerable.

Toothbrushing Tips

  • Brush your child's teeth for about two minutes twice a day: once just before bedtime and at least one other time during the day.
  • Encourage them to spit out excess toothpaste, but not to rinse with lots of water. Rinsing with water after tooth brushing will wash away the fluoride and make it less effective.
  • Supervise tooth brushing until your child is seven.
  • From the age of seven or eight, they should be able to brush their own teeth, but it's still a good idea to watch them now and again to make sure they brush properly and for about two minutes.

As with all our patients at GB Dental, we provide help and advice on how to care for your teeth and this is particularly important to younger patients. Establishing a good routine at an early age should reduce intervention over the following years.
