Children's Dentistry

at Jacaranda Family Dental



Although your child’s baby teeth will be lost naturally, ensuring they stay healthy and strong is important to avoid dangerous infections and prevent the development of crowding and poorly aligned adult teeth.

During your child’s first visit at Jacaranda Family Dental we will conduct a thorough examination of their teeth, gums, jaws and bite to ensure any developing problems can be corrected at the right time. We can even schedule your check up at the same time as your child’s to give them the confidence from having your teeth examined.


Our teeth have naturally occurring crevices called fissures and pits that can be difficult to clean and are often one of the first areas to develop tooth decay.

Before this happens it is possible to place a special filling called a sealant over the crevice to help prevent these cavities forming. Having a fissure sealant is a completely pain-free and non-invasive procedure at Jacaranda Family Dental.


Playing sport is fun, exciting and keeps us fit, but accidents do happen. Dental injuries from sport can be difficult and expensive to correct and are best prevented with a custom made mouthguard.

After taking a mould of your mouth at Jacaranda Family Dental we are able to create a mouthguard that is not only comfortable and suits your individual bite pattern, but evenly distributes and force from a knock or bump to the teeth.


Fluoride is a naturally occurring element, which at the right levels has major benefits for your children’s developing teeth. Fluoride is able to be absorbed into the enamel of the teeth to make them much more resistant to cavities.

Professionally applied fluoride at Jacaranda Family Dental can also help reverse damage done by early cavities through a process called remineralisation.
