Dental care for children

At TANDZORG.NL we believe it is important to guide your child from an early age to take proper dental care, especially since their primary teeth form the basis of the permanent teeth. Our systematic approach leads to a healthy child’s mouth, less risk of dental problems, better acceptance by your child and ultimately to optimum health of the permanent teeth.

Your child can visit the dentist from the age of six months, as soon as the primary teeth come through. During the oral examination you are requested to sit with your knees against the knees of the dentist. Your child will lie with its head on the dentist’s lap and with its legs on your lap. You are will be asked to hold your child’s hands and keep eye contact with your child. This allows the dentist to properly examine your child’s mouth.

We perform the oral examination “in the chair” at the age of two years and up with the exception of questions or accidents. Regular visits allow the child to become familiar with the dental visit routine.

Cavities

Cavities in the primary teeth are treated child friendly. We grind and fluoridate affected molars. Children respond better to this treatment than to a filling. Anaesthesia is usually not necessary. By keeping up the proper oral care as advised by the dentist the decay stops which is the purpose of the treatment. We will of course fill cavities in the permanent teeth. During the appointment we explain how you can best keep your child’s teeth healthy.

Oral Hygiene

The dentist may refer your child to the dental hygienist for advise on the correct method of brushing their teeth. During this consultation, your child’s teeth will be coloured with pink pigment. This is absorbed by the dental plaque. In this way it will become visible which areas need extra attention. Together we can determine what solution is best for your child.

Dental Anxiety
Approximately 40 percent of Dutch adults say they experience some amount of anxiety with regards to dental visits and dental treatments. About 12 percent have a strong enough fear to be considered sufferers of a dental phobia.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
For many years, dentist Nico Holtrop has been using laughing gas sedation mainly to treat patients who suffer from dental fear. The patient hereby inhales a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide through a nasal mask for a reassuring and calming (sedating) effect.
Implant
An implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw used to replace the root of a lost tooth in the jawbone.
Cosmetic Dental Consultation
Most of us care a great deal about the appearance of our teeth. At TANDZORG.NL we like to create your perfect smile using healthy and save dental procedures.
Teeth Whitening
The results of whitening your teeth depend on the natural colour of your teeth. We use a teeth whitening tray system (at-home whitening) to whiten your teeth.
Dental Veneers
If you want nice, regular teeth and braces are not an option, dental veneers are a good alternative.
Diastema
Most people experience a diastema (extra space between two or more teeth) as disturbing between the two front teeth in the upper jaw.
Dental Care for Children
At TANDZORG.NL we believe it is important to guide your child from an early age to take proper dental care, especially since their primary teeth form the basis of the permanent teeth.
Oral Hygiene
We have many different types of bacteria in our mouths. These also form on our teeth and molars. This is called plaque. If this plaque remains on the teeth and molars for a long time, it becomes tartar and cavities and gum disease can develop.
Periodic Oral Exam
The dentist checks your oral health during the periodic oral examination
Filling
TANDZORG.NL mainly uses composite resin for filling a cavity.
Dental Sealant
Dental sealants are used to prevent dental decay. It is a painless treatment mainly used in children to cover the grooves and pits.
Dental Extraction
Extraction is the official word for pulling teeth. If it is technically and financially possible, TANDZORG.NL will initially focus on repairing and preserving your own teeth.
Root Canal Treatment
Teeth and molars consist of a crown and one or more roots. The roots are anchored in the jaw under the gums. In each root runs a channel: the nerve or root canal. This canal contains nerve fibers and small blood vessels. If this tissue is irreparably damaged, for example after an injury, or is inflamed, the dentist performs a root canal treatment.
Dental Bridge
A dental bridge fills the gap created by one or more missing teeth and is fixed on anchoring teeth on either side of the open space.
Dental Crown
Due to wear, accidents or tooth decay, a tooth may have to be replaced by a dental crown. A crown is a porcelain cap that we apply over a damaged tooth and is intended as a permanent replacement for the tooth.
Denture
Is your existing denture due for replacement? Our clinical denture technicians, Jane Simin or Ron van Kooten, can make a high-quality denture that is completely tailored to your wishes.
Mouthguard
During contact sports and some ball sports, it is necessary to protect the teeth against impact. The stock mouth protectors that are available in stores offer insufficient protection because of the poor fit. It is important to have a good fit, tight around the teeth and partly over the gums (after all, the roots of the teeth lie under the gums), this ensures better protection.
Nutritionist
Nutrition plays an important role in both illness and health. A healthy diet is needed to stay healthy or to reduce the effects of illness.
