Family Friendly Dentistry in Fremantle, North Fremantle, Mosman Park
Superior Smiles provide quality dental care for the whole family and are open until 7pm most nights of the week to make it easy to fit your child’s dentist appointments in around school and extra curricular activities.
From age 3 it’s good to have a dentist visit once a year so the child has a chance to get used to the dentist environment - easier than to fight with dental fear later on if there is a need.
At age 6 when the permanent teeth start erupting it is even more important so the dentist can suggest preventive measures such as fissure sealants that helps to prevent future decay.
Also any future orthodontic needs are assessed to advice interceptive orthodontic measures that may help prevent future braces or reduce the time required for braces.
Prevention is more economic and cure!
