Children’s Dental Care in Southampton

From routine checkups and oral hygiene to meeting the Oakley Road tooth fairy our aim is to encourage children to visit the practice as soon as they develop their very first teeth.

Dentistry for Children

At Oakley Road Dental Practice our friendly team are here to welcome all of the family and take care of your children’s teeth. We encourage children to visit the practice as soon as they develop their very first teeth and then they will become more familiar and comfortable for future appointments. We recommend that from the age of 3 your child has six monthly check-ups, as decay on children can happen quickly. It is essential that your child is taught the importance of good oral hygiene and a healthy diet from a young age to maintain a healthy mouth.

Most children will start to lose their teeth from around the age of 6, when the permanent ones start to come through from below. Children tend to lose their upper and lower front teeth first, followed by their back teeth, with the baby molars falling out last. It is not uncommon for your children’s teeth to be misaligned until all their teeth are through – and this can be anywhere between the ages of 10-16.

6 month Checkups

The earlier that you can start to bring your children to our private dental practice in Southampton, the more familiar and comfortable they will feel when visiting. We recommend that from the age of 3 your child has six monthly check-ups, as decay on children can happen quickly and catch everyone unaware.

Denplan for Children

We offer private as well as Denplan for children from as little as £6.39 per month meaning you can budget wisely. This way your child will always get the care they need, avoiding the risk of unexpected bills. Doing the best for you child’s smile is simple with our caring staff.

We are over the moon with the treatment our daughter has received at Oakley Road Dental Practice. After her accident we really thought that she would be hiding her smile for the rest of her life but 6 weeks later and she is beaming from ear to ear!

Mel’s expertise and reassuring positivity put us at ease immediately and throughout the process my daughter felt well informed and confident that the finished result would be of the highest standard. It certainly is, and I will be recommending ORDP to all my friends and family.
