Children and teenagers of all ages are welcome at the family-friendly Smile Hub Dental Clinic. That's because we think excellent habits are formed at a young age.
Our clinic is furnished with everything needed to make your loved ones feel comfortable. Our helpful staff provides a variety of treatments that are intended to give children the greatest start and continue to be helpful over time.
Your children may even look forward to visiting Smile Hub Dental Clinic because it is so hospitable and friendly, in our opinion.
You'll be happy to learn that our paediatric dentist is open on Saturdays, so your kids won't have to skip class to make their appointment!
Early orthodontic intervention is crucial. Ignoring them or waiting until it is too late could cause minor difficulties to become major ones, opening the door for later lengthy and expensive treatment.
You'll discover that our staff is understanding of the growing pains experienced by kids and young adults, and that we are prepared with a variety of safe, quick, and discrete straightening solutions that won't embarrass you in the common area or on the playground.
Additionally, you'll find solutions for children and teenagers for orthodontics and teeth straightening that aren't offered in public health centres.
We advise scheduling a first orthodontic examination about a year after the adult teeth have fully emerged. We have a team of brace professionals on hand to assist you, and our children's dentist will be able to tell you when it would be appropriate to visit an orthodontist.
We provide a variety of braces at Smile Hub Dental Clinic, including discrete and invisible models. Orthodontic therapy does not always involve fixed metal braces; instead, children and adults who are self-conscious about how braces can seem may benefit from clear detachable aligners or invisible braces that are hidden behind the teeth.
Early childhood check-ups are crucial for giving your child the best chance to be healthy and for acclimating them to the sights and sounds of the dentist.
We advise scheduling a consultation for your child around the age of 12 months or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth.
Our family-friendly staff will make sure that as your children develop, they are in capable hands.
Toddlers and Babies
It's crucial to start paying attention to your baby's dental hygiene and habits as soon as their teeth start to appear. This entails using fluoride toothpaste to wash their teeth twice daily and monitoring their diet and sugar intake.
Although everyone is aware that sugar is terrible for our teeth, did you realise that the frequency of consumption, rather than the total amount, is what causes the harm? For instance, eating one sweet every hour throughout the day would be better for your child's teeth than eating the entire pack of sweets at once. The conclusion of a meal is the ideal moment for a child to consume sweets.
Don't forget that other foods, such fruit juice and squash, also contain sugar. Since milk teeth are crucial for speech development, facial appearance, and saving room for the adult teeth to erupt, it is extremely vital to maintain their health.
Your child doesn't require routine check-ups at this young age, but it might be helpful to take them with you to the dentist to help them get accustomed to the experience. To avoid passing on dental appointment anxiety to small children, try to maintain your composure and happiness throughout your appointments.
5 to 6 years old
Your child's first permanent teeth will begin to erupt around the age of 5 or 6. Many people do not realise that these adult molars are permanent teeth and hence do not adequately care for them because they do not replace any baby teeth but instead erupt behind them. This is the time to start taking your youngster for regular check-ups at the dentist.
On the rear teeth, we can also provide fissure sealants, which can help shield them from decay. By filling in the little "fissures" or gaps on the biting surface of the teeth, sealants prevent food from becoming stuck there and make cleaning the teeth easier. Fissure sealants are quick and painless because they are merely brushed onto the tooth's surface. On the rear teeth, we can also provide fissure sealants, which can help shield them from decay.

ages 7 to 9
The moment to start evaluating your child for prospective orthodontic treatment is when the baby teeth start to fall out and are replaced by adult teeth. Around this time, we can begin to identify where the adult teeth are positioned and keep an eye on the development of the jaw for any potential issues.
Not everyone needs braces to straighten their teeth, but if your child does, our team of orthodontists and dentists can offer a variety of solutions to help. Early orthodontic treatment can occasionally help patients avoid lengthy brace treatment later in life or even the necessity for facial surgery.
We can make sure that your kids have a decent tooth-brushing technique and are getting all the areas of their mouths when they are more independent and brushing their teeth alone. We have the chance to thoroughly clean your teenagers' teeth and give them advice on excellent oral hygiene during routine hygiene consultations.
Thank you so much to @smilehubhubdentalclinic for sorting me out with a last minute cracked tooth! 💕🙏
Sunday morning dentist needed badly and they had one! Amazing service!! Thank you so much. Everyone's so kind.
Dr. Laura Fee and the entire team are amazing, so friendly throughout and really reassuring! I recently had a wisdom tooth extraction under sedation and didn’t feel a thing. Everything was explained very clearly and I felt totally comfortable - would recommend this dental practice to anyone, they really do go above and beyond!
Thank you Smile Hub for the caring experience that you gave to me yesterday. I was nervous but your team were amazing at calming me and doing the wisdom teeth extractions super quick with no sedation. I really appreciate it! I couldn’t recommend Smile Hub highly enough.
Brilliant service- dealt with me on a bank holiday at 10pm when I couldn't get an appointment anywhere else- staff are lovely & dentist amazing- highly recommend.
