Children’s dentistry is very close to our heart here at Claregate Dental. We believe in introducing children to the dentist from the moment they get their first tooth. Teaching children the importance of visiting the dentist from an early age will help us teach them valuable lessons and habits for life.
Our family dental practice encourages you and your children to meet with our team and learn together how best to look after their teeth. As part of NHS support, children under the age of 18 can have routine dentistry free of charge, as can those under 19 who are in full-time education.

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.
Generally, you should arrange your child’s first dentist appointment 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 alignment problems early, amongst other concerns.
It’s very important to look after your child’s milk teeth just as it is their adult teeth. Not looking after their milk teeth, even though they will be replaced by adult teeth, can lead to a lot of discomfort and sometimes even extraction for your child. It is also indicative of how well they might look after their adult teeth. Milk teeth are where children learn dental health lessons for life, so it’s important to get them brushing and cleaning these teeth.
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 had given birth with the last 12 months.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps to strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay. A lot of toothpastes add fluoride to benefit your teeth’s dental health, including children’s toothpastes. We have a treatment that paints a concentrated and safe fluoride solution onto your child’s teeth to help fortify them against cavities.
Supervising teeth cleaning is a great way of making sure your children brush their teeth but brush yours alongside them to show them to set a good example. Also, introducing them to the dentist early will allow our dental team to tell them all about their dental health and why it’s important to take it seriously. Trust us – we’ll make dentistry fun!
