At DentalKind, we want children to enjoy their dental visits and look forward to growing strong positive relationships at an early age.

Our dentists and staff aim to make your child’s dental visits a fun experience with dental ‘passports’, educational material and stickers to reward for good behaviour.

Our philosophy is focused on prevention and we aim to help educate your children to become dentally healthy and low risk of dental problems. We work with parents to help identify problem areas and work as a team to create a healthy environment. Our Weybridge dentists and hygienists are happy to help provide nutritional dietary advice and demonstrate how to brush properly, floss and use mouthwash.

We offer free examinations to children under six years old and reduced fees for treatment when required.

Flouride Varnish Application

NICE guidelines set by the Department of Health show good evidence base for the regular application of 2.26% fluoride varnish onto your child's teeth up until adulthood. This will help harden the enamel and make it more resitant to decay.

Fissure Sealants

Where appropriate, sealants can be placed onto the premolars and molars to reduce the chance of food and plaque trapping in teeth. This lowers the risk of dental caries (decay) in the posterior teeth. Your dentist will advise you on sealants should they be approproate.

Introducing your child to the dentist

Once you’ve established a good tooth-brushing routine at home, the next step is the first trip to the dentist.

Take your child to the dentist when they’re as young as possible and at least once by the time they’re two. This is so they become familiar with the environment and get to know the dentist. The dentist can help to prevent decay and identify any health problems at an early stage. Just opening up the child’s mouth for the dentist to take a look is useful practice for when they could benefit from future preventive care.

When you visit the dentist, be positive about it and make the trip fun. This will stop your child worrying about future visits.

Take your child with you when you go for your own dental check-up appointments so they get used to it.

Hints & Tips

A regular teeth-cleaning routine is essential for good dental health. Follow these tips and you can help keep your kids’ teeth decay-free:

  • Start to brush your baby’s gums with a soft toothbrush at bath time, or even let your baby have a go themselves as long as you supervise them. This establishes brushing their teeth as part of the washing routine.
  • Start brushing your baby’s teeth with fluoride toothpaste as soon as the first milk tooth breaks through (usually at around six months, but it can be earlier or later). It’s important to use a fluoride paste as this helps prevent and control tooth decay.
  • Children under the age of three can use a smear of family toothpaste containing at least 1,000ppm (parts per million) fluoride. Children between the ages of three and six should use a pea-sized blob of toothpaste containing 1,350-1,500ppm fluoride.
  • Make sure your child doesn’t eat or lick the toothpaste from the tube.
  • Brush your child’s teeth for at least two minutes twice a day
  • Encourage them to spit out excess toothpaste but not to rinse with lots of water.
  • Supervise tooth brushing until your child is seven or eight years old

Brushing Properly

  • Guide your child’s hand so they can feel the correct movement.
  • Use a mirror to help your child see exactly where the brush is cleaning their teeth.
  • Make tooth brushing as fun as possible, using an egg timer for at least two minutes.
  • Don’t let children run around with a toothbrush in their mouth as they may fall over.

πŸ”₯πŸ”₯REPOST from @ohabioh πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ So as some of you guys have seen I have been going through my @invisalign_uk journey since March. I have always wanted to straighten my teeth, especially one that was super wonky at the front. It made me not want to smile & I would always put my hand over my mouth if I laughed etc. I want to do a thorough video talking about everything but for now this post will do! I used @dentalkind in Billericay who luckily are just around the corner from where I work!! 😁 Sunil has done such a great job on my final touches too, filling in my last few gaps, straightening up and tweaking them to perfection. I still need to have my whitening done which I’m double excited for. If you guys are thinking about having Invisalign through dentalkind, feel free to pop me over a message & I can give you information on how to receive your free consultation (there is absolutely no commitment or pressure at this point) and if you decide to go further, I can also offer you money off your treatment! So my DM’s are open to anyone who wants anymore info πŸ–€ I need to also find a before pic but it’s proving difficult as I never used to smile showing off my β€˜bad’ tooth side haha 🀨

Simple yet satisfying 😁. Nothing uber fancy, just a decayed amalgam filling being replaced with a tooth coloured composite filling.✌🏽

Dentist, please give me a 🦷. This lady had a visible space, did not like smiling and could not afford dental implants. We work with our patients to find suitable solutions to work within their budget.
Here we have a standard porcelain-metal adhesive bridge and this was all completed in 2 weeks. This process involved no drilling and should last many years to come. More aesthetic metal free options also exist (at a higher fee). A positive outcome and another smile improved in time for the weekend! 😁

Composite Smile Makeover .
This young lady wanted to improve her smile and didn’t want to undergo orthodontic treatment. After discussion of her options we agreed to place eight composite veneers. .
Several photos and a 3D scan were used in a digital smile design process. We work with our labs to create the ideal proportions and a result that was in harmony with her face. Thanks to @densign_lab for the amazing digital wax ups. .
The treatment was completed over 3 visits... 1. Placement 2. Refinement 3. Review.
.
Happy patient 😁 Happy dentist πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ

Here we replaced 2 missing teeth using an all ceramic bridge for a natural βœ… comfortable βœ… strong βœ… and aesthetic βœ… outcome.
The patient did not want to have dental implant treatment.
Process: (1) Designing the bridge via a digital wax up process (2) Careful preparation of the teeth to support the bridge (3) Test drive the bridge design with a provisional bridge (4) Final zirconia bridge delivered using a copy of the provisional (NO adjustments were required)
Thanks to @densign_lab for the lovey result. Always consistent work from these guys! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
