Children’s Dentistry

From toddlers to teenagers, our team of Ripon dental experts hope to encourage all children on the importance of maintaining a healthy smile for life, guiding them on oral care and ensuring they have regular check-ups.

The easy way to
care for tiny teeth

Children aren’t always aware of how important oral health is. With poor dental care, problems such as decay, infection, damage and even missing teeth can all occur – and in some cases, gum disease can lead to other health concerns.

That’s why we aim to establish good oral care habits early and encourage parents to bring their children to our Ripon practice early in life, so they can familiarise themselves with our staff and the treatment process. Here’s what you can expect from us:

  • A friendly, caring team with years of experience
  • The latest modern facilities in an ideal location
  • Dental health advice, demonstrations and treatments
  • Keen to get to know your child and any concerns
  • Varnishes and sealants available to protect teeth

Frequently Asked Questions
about our Children’s Dentistry

Poor oral health can lead to serious health concerns. Gum disease (periodontitis), for example, has been linked to conditions such as respiratory disease, rheumatoid arthritis and coronary artery disease.

We usually recommend children attend a check-up twice a year. However, those with poor oral care may need more visits.

We’re well-known in Boroughbridge for our family-friendly team and our warm, welcoming chairside manner. We’ll always put your child first and try to make their time fun and exciting, so they can feel comfortable and confident about their smile.

Children often learn by example, so even little ones who are reluctant to brush their teeth may be more interested in doing so if they see you doing it. Picking out a new toothbrush, putting music on while they brush and rewarding them with stickers and words of encouragement can all go a long way in helping them learn to care for their teeth. Finally, keep sugar in their diet to a minimum – it’s the leading cause of tooth decay – and ensure they attend regular check-ups.

Yes, lots! A few include:

  • Brush their teeth and tongue, and floss around the gums
  • Use a soft-bristled brush to avoid damaging enamel
  • Always clean with circular movements, again to avoid damage
  • Change their toothbrush around every 3-4 months
  • Ensure they spit out toothpaste, to prevent white spots on the teeth
