At Cure Dental, we accept Medicare Child Dental Scheme. The scheme provides eligible children aged 2 to 17 with $1000 for general dental treatments. If you are not sure whether your children are eligible or not, feel free to give us a call 9635 6888 to check.
We encourage children from the ages of two to three to have their first dental visit. Starting from an early age encourages good oral hygiene and reduces the fears of seeing a dentist. Children have highest risk of developing dental decay, which if not treated, causes pain, potential infection and abnormal development of permanent teeth.
Research into children’s dental problems
Research shows that children with dental decay in their baby teeth are much more likely to have decay affecting their permanent teeth.
More importantly, loss of baby teeth due to dental decay will cause a lack of space for permanent teeth therefore significantly increasing the risk of crowded permanent teeth and requirement for braces.
It is important to tell your children that a visit to the dentist is nothing to be afraid of. Also try to avoid expression of fear for dentists in front of your children – because they can easily pick up that impression.
