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

  • Ensure that your child brushes his or her teeth for at least two minutes twice a day. Once just before bedtime and at least once in the morning too.
  • They need to spit out excess toothpaste, don't rinse with lots of water, as this washes away the benefits of flouride in the tooth paste and renders it less effective.
  • Make sure that you supervise your children's tooth brushing until they are seven.
  • From the age of seven or above they should be able to brush their teeth on their own, but it's still good practice to have a look at what's going on from time to time and check they are brushing correctly.

We provide all our patients at GB Dental  with help and advice on how to care for your teeth properly. This is especially important for children. If they can get into a good oral hygiene regime from a young age they will have far fewer problems as they grow older.
