We are in Milton Keynes. Over the last ten years, our dentists have provided Child-Friendly Dental Care for over 10,000 children.

• Children should have their first dental visit near their first birthday.
One of the most important things about this first visit is growing a sense of familiarity with the dentist, staff, and environment.
Most of our young patients come to the dentist every six months. Therefore we see them at the same time as their parents attend the hygienist, but it all depends on the individual needs.
It is often the case that parents will bring in their children in-between visits for us to check something. Perhaps a loose tooth or a new tooth coming through which is crocked.
We welcome this, and for short “In-between Visits,” there is no charge.
We will listen to any concerns you have about your dental health.
We will have a good look around your mouth to make sure everything seems okay,
We check growth patterns and reinforce good oral hygiene habits as well,
We will decide if we need to take X-rays,
If we do, we will use digital imaging technology to almost instantly view and assess the X-rays on the computer,
We can talk you through options for any further treatment.
All our dentists are trained to carry out most surgical procedures including Tooth Extractions and Bone Augmentation.
Between them, they carry out several hundred Oral Surgery procedures a month.
Most oral surgery procedures we perform are simple extractions.
However complicated oral surgery procedures involve more complex surgery.
As with everything we do, we would offer a written cost breakdown before any Tooth Extraction procedures are performed.
We Gown up (Surgical Gowns) before all complex surgical procedures
Prevention is the easiest, simplest and cheapest way to have a healthy mouth.
At The Hub Dental Practice In Milton Keynes, our 18 dentists and Hygienists are committed to preventative Dentistry.
Maybe that’s why we are the largest Private Dental Practice in Milton Keynes, caring for 25,000 patients every year.
Fluoride does wonders for teeth, there is no doubt about that. However, like most additives, too much can be bad for you.
There are 3 main ways we intake Fluoride
There is fluoride in the food and water that we consume.
Sometimes it is added artificially, but this is very rare.
The amount of fluoride in water varies from location to location, and whilst it is added to the water supply in some areas, in other areas there is simply a higher level in the water.

The main cause of tooth decay is not the amount of sugar in the diet, but how often it is eaten or drunk. The more often your child has sugary foods or drinks, the more likely they are to have decay.
It is therefore important to keep sugary foods to mealtimes only.
If you want to give your child a snack, try to stick to cheese, vegetables and fruit, but not dried fruit.
It is also worth remembering that some processed baby foods contain quite a lot of sugar. Try checking the list of ingredients: the higher up the list sugar is, the more there is in the product.
Thorough brushing twice a day, particularly last thing at night, will help to prevent tooth decay.
It is recommended that children should go to the dentist with their parents as soon as possible.
You should then take them regularly, on average once every 6 months. This will let them get used to the noises, smells and surroundings and prepare them for future visits. The earlier these visits begin, the more relaxed the children will be.
Cleaning your child’s teeth should be part of their daily hygiene routine.
· You may find it easier to stand or sit behind your child, cradling their chin in your hand so you can reach their top and bottom teeth more easily.
· When the first teeth start to come through, try using a children’s toothbrush with a small smear of toothpaste.
· It is important to supervise your child’s brushing until they are at least seven.
· Once all the teeth have come through, use a small-headed soft toothbrush in small circular movements and try to concentrate on one section at a time.
· Don’t forget to brush gently behind the teeth and onto the gums.
· If possible make tooth brushing a routine – preferably in the morning, and the last thing before your child goes to bed.
Remember to encourage your child, as praise will often get results!
First or ‘baby’ teeth have usually developed before your child is born and will start to come through at around 6 months. All 20 baby teeth should be through by the age of 2. (refer to Mother and Baby leaflet.)
The first permanent molars (back teeth) will appear at about 6 years of age, behind the baby teeth and before the first teeth start to fall out at about 6 to 7. The permanent ‘adult’ teeth will then replace the ‘baby’ teeth.
It is usually the lower front teeth that are lost first, followed by the upper front teeth shortly after. All permanent teeth should be in place by the age of 13, except the wisdom teeth. These may erupt at any time between 18 and 25 years of age.
All children are different and develop at different rates. The diagram below gives an idea of when the permanent teeth come through.
Fluoride comes from a number of different sources including toothpaste, specific fluoride applications and perhaps the drinking water in your area.
These can all help to prevent tooth decay. If you are unsure about using fluoride toothpaste ask your dentist, health visitor or Primary Care Trust.
You can get low-fluoride toothpaste, and the general rule is to use a small smear of toothpaste up to 5 years; from 5 to 7 use slightly less than a pea size and a normal pea size from 7 upwards.
Children should be supervised up to the age of 7, and you should make sure that they spit out the toothpaste and don’t swallow any if possible.
There are many different types of children’s toothbrushes available, including brightly coloured brushes, some of which change colour, those with favourite characters on the handles, and some with timers.
These all encourage children to brush their teeth. The most important point is to use a small-headed toothbrush with soft, nylon bristles, suitable for the age of your child.
If in doubt, look for the British Dental Health Foundation symbol on toothbrush and toothpaste packaging.
This logo means that the product claims made on the pack are supported by scientific testing.
Toothache is painful and upsetting, especially in children, and the main cause is still tooth decay. This is due to too much sugar, too often, in the diet.
Teething is another problem that starts at around 6 months and can continue as all the adult teeth start to come through.
If your child needs pain relief, make sure you choose a sugar-free medicine and also remember to check with the doctor or pharmacist that you are being prescribed sugar-free medicines at all times.
If the pain continues then contact your dentist for an appointment.
Children can sense fear in their parents, so it is important not to let your child feel that a visit to the dentist is something to be worried about.
Try to be supportive if your child needs to have any dental treatment.
If you have any fears of your own about going to the dentist, don’t discuss them in front of your child.
Regular visits to the dentist are essential in helping your child to get used to the surroundings and what goes on there.
A child can be much more anxious if it is their first visit to a dental practice.
Pain and distress can happen at any time and it is important to prepare your child with regular visits.
