Children Dentistry

Paediatric dentists specialise in providing primary oral healthcare for children, from infancy through adolescence, and patients with special healthcare needs.

These dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children through various stages of childhood.

Children usually get their baby teeth during their first six months. By ages 6 or 7, they start losing these primary teeth, replaced by permanent ones.

Without proper dental care, kids may face oral decay and diseases that can lead to a lifetime of complications.

Childhood dental caries, an infectious disease, is more common than asthma and hay fever.

What Paediatric Dentists Do:

  • Infant oral health exams and caries risk assessment for mother and child
  • Preventive care, including cleaning, fluoride treatments, nutrition, and diet guidance
  • Habit counselling (pacifier use and thumb-sucking)
  • Early orthodontic assessments
  • Cavities and defect repairs
  • Diagnosis of oral conditions related to diseases like diabetes, congenital heart defects, asthma, and more
  • Gum disease management and care for dental injuries

Tips for Taking Your Child to the Dentist:

  • Visit the dentist when your child gets their first teeth.
  • Make the visit positive and enjoyable.
  • Schedule regular check-ups as advised by your dentist.

Toothbrushing Tips:

  • Brush your child’s teeth for about two minutes twice a day.
  • Let them spit out excess toothpaste without rinsing with water.
  • Supervise their brushing until they are seven or eight.

Captivate Dental offers quality children’s dentistry services in Cheltenham.

Preventative Dentistry

Preventing dental issues is more effective than curing them. At Captivate Dental, we emphasise preventive measures to maintain your oral health.

Prevention includes:

  • Brushing and flossing
  • Maintaining a healthy diet
  • Regular dental check-ups and cleanings

Even with proper home care, cavities can develop without causing pain. Teamwork with our dental professionals is essential for a healthy smile.

Routine Teeth Cleanings:

Regular teeth cleanings are vital in combating gum inflammation and periodontal diseases. Ignored inflammation can lead to gum disease and tooth loss.


Fluoride strengthens the tooth structure and helps prevent decay. It should be consumed in moderation to avoid fluorosis, especially in children.

Oral Cancer Exam:

Early detection significantly increases the success rate in treating oral cancer. Regular screenings are crucial.


Sealants protect the hard-to-clean grooves on chewing surfaces to prevent cavities. They are durable and require regular checks.


Custom-made mouthguards prevent teeth grinding and wear, offering comfort and maximum protection.

Maintain your dental health with preventive dentistry at Captivate Dental.

Composite Veneers and Fillings

Composite restorations offer a modern alternative to traditional silver fillings. They come in various tooth-coloured shades, ensuring a natural look that’s strong and durable.

Composite Veneers:

Composite veneers are applied to the front of your teeth to address issues like discolouration, misalignment, cracks, or chips. They are added in layers and hardened with a special light.

Once the desired shape and colour are achieved, they are polished for a natural appearance.

If your teeth and gums are healthy, you may be a suitable candidate for veneers, which can hide various dental issues.

Composite Fillings:

Composite fillings, made of tooth-coloured plastic and glass, restore decayed or damaged teeth while enhancing your smile.

Reasons for composite fillings include chipped teeth, closing gaps, cracked or broken teeth, decayed teeth, or worn teeth. These fillings are usually placed in a single appointment.

The dentist removes decayed portions, cleans the area, and applies the new filling. You may experience some sensitivity initially, but it will subside with time.

Composite Resin Restoration Lifespan:

The durability of composite materials depends on the extent of bonding, oral habits, and lifestyle.

In general, they can last up to 5 years before requiring maintenance. They don’t need special care – just practice good oral hygiene.

If you have damaged teeth, consult your dentist to explore options for restoring your smile with long-lasting, natural-looking restorations.
