Here Is Our

Solution For Children's Dentistry

There are many reasons why our littlest patients love visiting us at KR Dental. Not only are our staff extremely gentle, friendly, and caring in the way they treat patients, but they also have a knack for making dental care fun and stress-free for children.

When Should a Child Have Their First Check-up?

This is one of the most common questions a parent will ask, but thankfully, the answer is quite simple! Our patients are as young as one year old, as it’s important to acquaint your infant with the dentist as their mouth and soft tissue begin to grow and change. This also allows our team to treat any minor issues as they arise, preventing them from turning into more complex issues down the track.

Additionally, it’s vital that your child becomes familiar both in the dental practice environment and with our dentists, as this helps to prevent dental anxiety as they grow older. We believe that visiting the dentist should be a positive experience for all, which is why we give littlies a ride in our dental chair to get them giggling. Or perhaps they’re more comfortable sitting in mum’s lap for the first few visits.

Even from the very beginning, we recommend that you bring your infant with you to either your appointment or those of other family members, as this also allows your child to familiarise themselves with the dentist without being the focus of attention (to prevent further overwhelm).

By age 2-3, we’ll begin screening for other orofacial concerns such as growth patterns, enlarged tonsils, thumb sucking and airway blockages. Depending on your child’s comfort level, we’ll try to give their teeth a light brush and see further into their mouth to check on their oral development. We’ll also screen for tongue restructions, which might impede speech patterns or proper tooth alignment.

At age 5, we’ll plan to take your child’s first X-rays. By this point in development, we’ll have a chance to peer into permanent (adult) molar formation and screen for decay in hard-to-clean areas. Many of your child’s primary baby teeth will still be in place until they’re 12-13 years old, so it’s crucial to ensure their health for as long as possible.

What About Growth Phase Orthodontics?

The development of your child’s facial anatomy can impact their future bite and profile. By intercepting bone growth patterns to adjust their trajectory, we can minimize irregularities such as underbites, speech impediments and other developmental concerns. That way when and if they need braces in the future, the treatment will be to fine tune tooth positioning rather than trying to address a skeletal issue that’s no longer capable of being corrected.

What To Expect From

Dr Nipuni Thilakaratne and her assistant were fabulous. So gentle, kind and patient. The best experience I have had at a Dentist in many years. I would recommend this Dental Practice to anyone.

Margaret Butterfield as the assistant made it very comfortable for me thank you all soo much. You deserve a 10 star rating

Flora

Dr. Nipuni is the finest dentist I have taken treatments from. She is very professional, kind, flexible and gentle. In my recent treatment, Dr. Nipuni spent her valuable time lavishly in listening / comforting me, explaining the procedures, advising how to followup with the post treatment care. Most importantly, I didn't feel any pain during her caring treatments. 😄😄😄 I would highly recommend her and the KR dental to my friends and any patient needing gentle dental care.
