- Mouthguards are an essential part of a sports kit these days, both for children and adults,
Caring for all the family is at the heart of SmileMore Dental Care. Children from as young as two years-old should start to visit the dentist to ensure they are on the road to healthy teeth and gums for life.
Initially, visits are made to help the child get to know the dentist and feel safe and secure in the practice. Dr Paul Abrahams, is a father of four himself, and so is at ease with helping youngsters familiarise themselves with visiting the dentist.
Dr Abrahams carries out the preliminary dental examinations on our young clients and our hygienists help educate them on better brushing and keeping teeth clean and healthy.
We recommend that children should visit both the dentist and hygienist twice a year.
Any areas of concern, such as cavities, will be taken care of by Dr. Abrahams. If there are issues with overcrowding, or development, we can refer the child to a trusted paediatric dentist. We also make special sport mouth guards for children, which are essential to avoid potentially severe injuries.
