Oral health is important for a child’s growth, development, general health and self-esteem.
At Charlton Road Dental, we want your children to have the best dental health possible. Visits to a dentist by children as young as 2 years of age are important in order to detect any problems in growth and oral health as soon as possible. Early visits also get them used to having their teeth checked and acclimatise them to the dental environment.
Older children will be assessed for the need for Orthodontics at a suitable age. If appropriate they will be referred to one of the local specialist orthodontic practices or hospital departments. Please note that NHS orthodontic treatment is only funded if the severity of the dental problem has reached a certain level i.e. if the problem is minor NHS treatment will not be available. This does not affect the initial assessment with the orthodontist which is covered by NHS arrangements.
