Children's dental care
Prevention is a key aspect of maintaining good oral health and early introduction into dental hygiene is the best way of preventing problems with teeth in the future. Moreover, introducing your child to the dental chair early
will overtime get them used to the environment and reduce their stress associated with appointments. For this reason, during the first week of every month, we offer free check-ups for all children. This is a great solution for children who refuse to open their mouth on their first visit because they can attend free checkups every month until they are at ease and compliant. During such a check up we will teach your child about the proper teeth brushing technique, familiarise them with the equipment we use and of course we will check their teeth for any problems, which need to be taken care of.
In the first week of every month dental checkups are FREE for all children up to the age of 18.
Braces for children
If you are worried that your child’s teeth are not growing straight, we will also be able to advise on the best suited orthodontic appliance. It is worth remembering that clear braces and aligners are available to patients of all ages and not reserved for adults alone. So, if your teen is understandably reluctant to wear metal braces they will be pleased to know that there are teeth straightening solutions which will be virtually invisible to their friends. Not only that, but with the world renowned Damon® System braces developed in California, we are able to treat even complex cases of misalignment without pulling out any teeth.
Straight teeth without extractions!
If you have been told by another dentist that your child needs to have some teeth pulled out before starting orthodontic treatment, visit us for a FREE consultation first because chances are this can be avoided altogether. Furthermore, the Damon System braces are band free. Bands in braces can often come off, become discoloured and require exchange it multiple times during the course of treatment. This is completely avoided in the Damon System meaning fewer appointments are required.
Treatment without pain!
Cavities are quite a common problem in children and treating them can be stressful for them. However, we are able to treat cavities with virtually no pain and no anaesthetic injections thanks to our air abrasion system and Waterlase dental laser. The former uses a stream of water, air and a fine powder while the latter uses precisely directed laser energy. No drilling is required meaning no unpleasant discomfort for your loved one.
While some dentists in Mallorca do not allow parents to be inside the consulting room with their child is undergoing treatment, we believe that the presence of a parent with the child is extremely important as it puts the young patient at ease. Moreover, we put emphasis on the significance of informed consent so we give parents detailed information as to what is planned, any questions are answered and consent is sought from the parents before any treatment in commenced.
