A healthy smile starts from the first tooth. At Adelaide’s Burnside Dental Practice, we look after all your child’s dental needs. Whether your child has dental pain, or just needs their regular checkup, we’re here to help. A visit to the dentist can be a daunting experience, which is why our team of dentists and oral therapists are committed to making the visit comfortable and stress free. Our oral therapists are specially trained in the needs of children, and work closely with our dentists to provide a positive experience for children of all ages.
We offer treatment to your children with happy gas in a child-friendly environment, where both you and your children can feel comfortable and relaxed.
We tick all the boxes for making your child feel comfortable at the dentist.
We accept the Child Dental Benefit Scheme and are preferred providers for many health funds, like BUPA, Medibank and HCF, meaning that often treatment is gap-free.
Our focus is on preventative dentistry with education and awareness of good dental habits. Good dental habits start at an early age, so your child’s first dental appointment should be no later than their first birthday. We recommend six monthly examinations, cleans, and fluoride application.
Our qualified oral therapists also give oral hygiene instruction and place preventative “fissure seals” on teeth where needed.
Our aim is to lay a foundation for dental health that will help your child keep their natural teeth for life with minimal restorations.
Besides paediatric dental treatment, we also help to educate children and parents on how to look after children’s teeth. We offer advice on healthy eating habits and proper brushing techniques to avoid tooth decay.
We offer custom-made mouthguards to protect your child’s teeth and the surrounding structures from injury during sports and play.
The right mouth guard can keep your child athlete smiling on and off the field. The best mouth guard option for your child athlete is a custom sports mouth guard fitted by your child’s dentist. These guards consist of the highest-quality, longest-lasting materials and fit your child’s teeth perfectly, which enables these guards to minimise injuries to the greatest extent.
Unlike the ‘stock’ mouthguards available over-the-counter, custom-fitted mouthguards are designed to be comfortable. They shouldn’t drop out your child’s mouth during play or inhibit breathing or speech, making them easier to wear while playing.
A properly fitted mouthguard will help protect your child’s mouth in the event of a blow that could potentially cause some serious damage to their teeth, soft tissue and jaw.
