FAQ About Our Dental Clinic In Armadale

We understand that you may have questions when seeing a new dentist for the first time. If your concern isn’t addressed
below, please feel free to contact our practice. One of our friendly team members will be happy to assist you.
They should see a family dentist by the time they turn one or six months after their first baby tooth erupts. In most cases, the first visit lasts about 30 to 45 minutes. Your child’s dental checkup may include a comprehensive examination of their teeth, bite, jaws, gums, and soft tissue to monitor the development.

Prevent dental issues: Preventative dentistry is the foundation of the dentistry practice, and dentists have earned a solid reputation for identifying problems at an early stage before they become more serious problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease.

Early evaluation of the teeth and gums: Pre-treatment and post-treatment orthodontic examinations are strongly encouraged. During the dental exam, the dentist may find symptoms that your child needs orthodontics. If possible, they’ll seek early intervention to help their healthy teeth develop straight.

Every child’s first orthodontic evaluation and treatment is different; thus, there is no one-size-fits-all rule. The best time to meet with an expert dentist depends on the child’s age and needs.

Orthodontic treatment is often most appropriate for younger patients, but even older adolescents can benefit from braces. An important thing to think about is how well the patient’s teeth and bones have grown, which will show how ready they are for treatment.

You can set a dental appointment once a child’s first permanent teeth have erupted. In most cases, this is typically between 6 and 8 years old. Because your child’s adult tooth is still forming, there may already be alignment problems. Early assessment and treatment is an excellent method to identify issues and develop a long-term treatment plan for dealing with them.

CDBS includes regular dental check-ups, x-rays, cleanings, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, and extractions for your child. It is impossible to use this plan for treatments provided in a hospital or for orthodontic or cosmetic work.

The Australian government will provide $1,000 to each qualified child over two years. Benefits that are not used throughout the two years will not be carried over to the following year.

Fissure sealant adds a layer of protection against decay by sealing cracks and fissures. They can protect the molars from decay and decay-causing bacteria if applied as soon as the natural tooth forms in the mouth.

When selecting a dentist for your child, keep the following considerations in mind:

Qualification: For your child’s dental health, choose a dentist who graduated from an accredited school of dentistry and has adequate training and experience.

A valid license: To practice dentistry in your state, a dentist must obtain a license from the state board. It’s common for dental licenses and certificates to be on display in the reception area of a dental office.

Equipped and Knowledgeable with the latest dental procedures: Dental professionals specialising in helping children should be familiar with a wide range of treatment methods and use advanced technology and equipment. They should be able to perform standard dental care services on your child while also being knowledgeable about more complicated procedures.

The ability to manage behaviour effectively: You’ll want to look for a child-friendly dentist with experience in behavioural management. It’s a skill that dentists are taught to master to effectively interact with patients.

Clinic location: Look at how far the dentist’s office is from where you live. Dentists should be located within a reasonable distance of your home or neighbourhood. Longer distances increase your child’s anxiety, which might lead to meltdowns.

The CDBS does not cover orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, or dental services performed in a hospital. You can have your private health insurance to assist in paying for your child’s dental care. If your health insurance covers it, your child can receive treatment for any dental problem.

When it comes to dental care, private health insurance can be a lifesaver when the public system doesn’t pay for necessary procedures like orthodontics. When planning for orthodontics, ensure that your “Extras” insurance covers it since not all health plans classify orthodontic treatment in the same way.

Also, the same dental service cannot be claimed under CDBS and private health insurance at the same time.
