From our practice locations in Beaumont Hills, Edgecliff and Kellyville Village our dental professionals are committed to helping our youngest patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles. By instilling strong dental habits from childhood your child may be more likely to keep their natural teeth for life as they are familiar with these behaviours.
Healthy teeth and gums are often the result of caring dental maintenance. The team here at Precise Dental Surgery believes in partnering with parents to educate young children in the proper care of their teeth. Our mission is to create the right environment to arm both parents and children with the necessary knowledge and skills to practice effective dental care. This includes the correct way to brush and floss their teeth. Your dentist is also here to recommend orthodontic solutions for young patients with crooked teeth or overbites.
Each child is unique and our dentists provide dental care in an individualised and compassionate manner. We spend time getting to know our younger patient’s dental tendency’s and making them feel comfortable in our dental practice. This allows our dental professionals to create a partnership with you child, which can help to eliminate dental anxiety and lay the foundations for a future of healthy dental habits.

A child’s deciduous teeth, also known as their baby teeth, can play an important role in their dental development and the future of their smile. Having a healthy set of baby teeth is also important for a child’s general health. Baby teeth allow children to chew their food in order for them to correctly digest it and draw the necessary nutrients from it. Baby teeth also help children develop speaking abilities, helping them to correctly pronounce the beginnings of words.
While baby teeth are extremely important for the current development of your child, they can also play an important role in their dental future. Baby teeth act as placeholders for adult teeth and can play an important role in the development of the oral cavity. The eruption of your baby teeth can help to guide the later adult teeth into place. The development of your jawbone occurs around the baby teeth, allowing the bone to accommodate for the later adult teeth to erupt.
There are a number of steps dentists and parents can take in partnership to protect the dental health of children and help safeguard the future of their smile. Excellent dental health can come about with a sound oral hygiene. Before your child’s teeth have even erupted we advise parents to clean their child’s gums gently with a damp cloth.
Once your child’s baby teeth have erupted you can start brushing them with a soft bristled brush and children’s toothpaste. We advise parents to help their child brush their teeth until they of an age that they can do it thoroughly themselves. Once your child is seven years old we advise you to bring them in for their first dental appointment, in order to create a dental partnership with our dental team and for us to monitor the development of their teeth, gums and jawbone.
What is Pola Whitening?

What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are small thin porcelain shells that are placed directly on top of your teeth. They can eliminate gaps between teeth, tooth discolouration and broken / chipped teeth.
What are Dental Crowns?
Like veneers, dental crowns are made of porcelain and act as a cap or crown for your teeth. They are often combined with dental bridges to replace missing teeth.
When should my child start seeing the dentist?
We recommend your child starts visiting the dentist from an early age, preferably when they are around 7 years old.
What is the difference between conventional braces and Invisalign?
There are many differences between Invisalign and conventional braces. For example, with Invisalign you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing as Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are also removable meaning you can brush and floss as you would normally – this is something you cannot do with conventional braces. Despite this, conventional braces can be a more suitable option for those with more subnational orthodontic concerns.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely considered the modern solution to missing teeth and dentures. Replace missing teeth with dental implants which act and feel like normal teeth. They consist of a titanium screw-like post which is implanted into the jawbone. The implant will then bond with your jawbone to provide stimulation and support for a dental crown or bridge.
What is a root canal?
The root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. Root canal treatment is recommended for patients with infected tooth pulps. The best indication of infection is severe dental pain or sensitivity.
How can you restore my smile?
Advancements in dental technology allow us to completely restore a patient’s smile. There are a variety of treatments that may be suggested. We recommend you visit our practice and schedule in a dental consultation. This allows us to assess your dental health and develop a plan of action to ensure you have healthy teeth for life.
My wisdom teeth are causing pain. Should I have them removed?
Because often modern jaws are not big enough to accommodate these extra teeth, in the majority of cases we do recommend they are removed. We recommend you come into our practice for a thorough examination to determine the path we take in ensuring your dental health.
I am afraid of the dentist. Do you offer virtually pain free dentistry?
For anxious patients, we provide a number of pain management options including happy gas and sleep dentistry to ensure that these patients can receive the dental work they need. To learn more please visit our sleep dentist page.
How often should I visit the dentist for a dental check-up?
We recommend you visit our practice every 6 months for your dental check-up and fluoride treatment. This way minors dental issues can be addressed before they potentially become major problems.
