    Frequently asked questions at our Family Dentist…

    Find the answers you’ve been searching for about visiting a family dentist in Wolverhampton! We believe an informed patient is a happy patient, so do get in touch if you would like to find out more about our treatments.

    1. When should I arrange my child’s first dentist appointment?

      Generally, you should arrange your child’s first dentist appointment at our Wolverhampton family dental practice when their first teeth start to come through. This way we can begin forging a positive relationship with your child early and spot any warning signs of teeth problems early.

    2. Is it important to look after baby teeth?

      It’s very important to look after your child’s milk teeth the same way you would for adult teeth. Although it’s replaced by adult teeth, poor care of a child’s milk teeth can lead to discomfort and sometimes even tooth extraction for your child. It is also indicative of how well they might look after their adult teeth. Milk teeth are where children acquire lifelong dental health skills, therefore it’s critical to have them brush and clean their teeth.

    3. I’m pregnant, can I come to the dentist?

      Of course! Pregnancy can affect your teeth in small ways, such as making your gums more sensitive to gum disease. Under NHS support, pregnant people can visit the dentist and receive routine health treatments free of charge. This is also the same for those who have given birth within the last 12 months.

    4. What does fluoride do?

      Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps to strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay. A lot of toothpaste brands add fluoride to benefit your teeth’s dental health, including children’s toothpaste. We have a treatment that paints a concentrated and safe fluoride solution onto your child’s teeth to help fortify them against cavities.

    5. How can I teach my child about their teeth?

      Supervising teeth cleaning while brushing your own teeth is an excellent technique to ensure that your children brush their teeth while also setting a positive example. Also, bringing kids to our Wolverhampton dental practice early will allow our dental experts to educate them on the significance of maintaining good oral health. Trust us – we’ll make dentistry fun!

    What our clients say about us

    Everybody who works here is so friendly and reassuring, nothing is too much trouble. The dentist is the most professional, down to earth dentist I’ve ever met and most importantly, very gentle and thorough. I will not go anywhere else and if Google reviews did more stars, this dental practice would always get full marks from me.
