It is completely normal for your child to have feelings of stress and anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist. As such, Dental Cube strives to make the experience as stress and pain-free as possible.
If required, Dental Cube can provide sedation in the form of what is commonly called the green whistle. This is a hand-held inhaler which produces an analgesic and calming effect, minimising pain and anxiety associated with dental procedures. At Dental Cube, our goal is always to provide the safest, most pain-free treatment for your child. Contact us to find out more about our safe and pain-free dental procedures.
Child Dental Benefit Scheme
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a scheme run by Medicare that provides eligible children up to $1,000 over two calendar years to pay for a range of dental services.
If your child is eligible, the CDBS will cover dental services including examinations, routine cleaning, repairing cracked teeth, fillings and root canals.
At Dental Cube we are proud to provide services under CDBS. Contact us to find out more, today!
Sealants are used to fill in narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. Fine grooves or pits in primary and permanent teeth accumulate plaque, not because the person doesn’t brush, but because these pits and grooves are too narrow to allow even one bristle into them. These will develop cavities over time, and you don’t want that.
Applying sealants is easy. After the tooth is cleaned, a special gel is placed on the chewing surface for a few seconds. The tooth is then washed and dried. Then, the sealant is painted on the tooth. The dentist or dental assistant will shine a light on the tooth to help harden the sealant and form a protective shield.
Habit Breaking Appliances
It is common to see an infant sucking their thumb or fingers but the thumb sucking habit seems to relax and comfort toddlers too, and it’s perfectly natural. But as a child grows, there comes a point where this habit isn’t just socially awkward – it may also be harmful to his or her oral health.
In most children, thumb sucking stops on its own between the ages of two and four years. But if the practice persists after primary (baby) teeth have erupted, it can drastically change the growth patterns of the jaw and cause significant misalignment of the teeth. Fortunately, it can be treated with a habit appliance, like fixed palatal crib or removable one.
Like thumb sucking, tongue thrusting is common among children. It is actually a natural infantile swallowing pattern ,which usually changes on its own by the age of 6 in most children but it persists beyond that age , it can also need professional attention at dentist office and we can make similar habit appliance like palatal crib for thumb sucking.
