Children's dentistry

“Having moved out of London to Reading, dentistry at Crescent Lodge has become something of a family outing for us. But travelling so far is worth the effort for such excellent service and we thoroughly recommend the practice.”

At Crescent Lodge Dental Practice we believe in preventive dental care, which means we would rather help you avoid problems with your teeth, than fixing them!

As part of this approach, we encourage you to bring your children to visit us from an early age. Regular dental health assessments from a young age will ensure children won’t suffer from untreated dental decay, which can have devastating consequences on their adult teeth and they will also learn that a visit to the dentist is a pleasant experience and not something to be feared.

Special treatments for children

We offer fluoride applications that are a safe and effective way to safeguard your growing child’s teeth from developing decay. Fluoride is painted onto the surface of your child’s teeth and this helps to mineralise the teeth. Another treatment is fissure sealing, which is a tooth coloured material that is applied to biting surfaces of children’s teeth to help prevent decay, something that is especially useful while they are still learning to brush their teeth properly.

Treating a child from a young age also allows our dentists to spot early signs of cross bites or overbites developing. We have an experienced dentist with a special interest in orthodontics at Crescent Lodge Dental Practice in London, who offers of range of braces for children.

Dr Dino Birkenstock is particularly interested in early functional brace treatment for children and fixed orthodontic treatment. He is a qualified Invisalign practitioner and has been awarded silver status by Invisalign, the producers of virtually invisible aligners for adults and teenagers.

We also offer a special monthly dental care plan for children because we believe prevention is always better than cure.
