Children's Dentist Logan & Underwood

Children’s dental clinics in Logan and Underwood to help you lay the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health for your kids.

Children’s dentistry – paediatric dentistry – gets kids accustomed to dental visit from an early age.

Besides stopping dental problems in their tracks, your child’s dentist will also offer expert advice on the best at-home oral hygiene practices for kids.

Children’s dentistry embraces a range of preventive and restorative dental care services.

Preventive Dentistry for Kids

Preventive dental services such as regular check-ups and professional cleanings reduce the risk of your children getting cavities or gum problems.
If your child has deep grooves and pits on their back teeth, their dentist may recommend a dental sealant – also known as a fissure sealant – to help prevent tooth decay. The nooks and crannies that occur naturally in back teeth easily trap food particles.

Child Suffering from Tooth Decay?


In cases of tooth decay, a filling restores strength and function to a child’s baby teeth or the permanent teeth that have emerged.

Fillings are used for baby teeth because, although these primary teeth will eventually fall out, untreated cavities can be painful and result in complications such as infection.
Factors that may contribute towards decay in kids’ teeth include:
  • High levels of harmful oral bacteria
  • Low level of saliva production
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • A diet rich in starches and sugars
  • No fluoride in water supply

Dental crowns

When a large area of a tooth surface is decayed, a dental crown may be a better option than a filling.

Crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth, and, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), prevent 80 percent of cavities in molars.

If a child’s tooth has decayed beyond repair, extraction will be necessary. Other reasons a child’s tooth may have to be extracted include irregular dental development or a blow to the mouth.
Tooth removal is the last resort to prevent issues such as pain from an infection or abscess, and may also be necessary to help orthodontic treatment for severely crowded teeth.

Underwood Children's Dentist that Kids Trust

Our Underwood and Logan Children’s Dentist puts young patients at ease and builds rapport to gain their trust, explaining dental terms and procedures in a way children can understand.

For procedures such as a filling or tooth removal, local anaesthetic and laughing gas (nitrous oxide) can make treatment less stressful.
We offer children’s dentistry treatments under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) for qualifying youngsters up to the age 17.
