Frequently asked questions

Some of the important tips you should follow to keep your child’s teeth in good health include:

  • Brush twice daily using childrens toothpaste containing fluoride
  • Regularly brush with a soft bristled toothbrush once first tooth erupts
  • Use a mainstream child formulated toothpaste from 18 months of age
  • Start taking your child to a dentist for a routine visit when they are about 2 years old
  • Enquire about having fissure sealants for your child’s teeth to prevent tooth decay

The CDBS is a Medicare funded scheme providing eligible children $1000 worth of dental treatment over a two-year period.

Your child can get CDBS when:

  • they are eligible for Medicare
  • they are between 2 and 17 years old
  • you or they get a Centrelink payment at least once that year

We understand it can be tricky to figure out eligibility for these types of subsidies, so please call us today to find out more and we can help.

This is a very common question. The timing of loosing baby teeth is hugely varied from child to child. The presence of both an adult and baby tooth concurrently is not a cause for concern.

Sometimes it’s a matter of patience to allow enough time for the baby tooth to fall out naturally. Other times it may require a little help. A dentist may remove the baby tooth to allow the adult tooth to erupt into the correct position.

If you have any concerns please call us for a consult to discuss.
