Family dentistry is broken down into two broad sections

  1. Children’s dentistry from 3 to 16 years of age.

Our emphasis is on complete preventive care, we provide all necessary advice to ensure your child remains free of decay and pain. We are often asked when a child should start attending a dentist and we advise the earlier the better from 2 to 6 years. These first visits are used to introduce the child to the dental environment and rarely if ever involve treatment we concentrate on tooth brushing, diet and making the whole experience of visiting us fun.

From 6 to 9 years of age we provide fissure sealants /dietary advice and fluoride treatments if required to prevent decay. We monitor the development in the mouth and will correct any minor issues of crowding, missing teeth etc. early and thereby saving a lot of discomfort, time and money.

From 9 to 12 years of age we provide early orthodontic treatment using removable appliances and ensure normal development of the dentition.

From 12 to 16 the teenage years are the most difficult years and usually result in an increase of dental decay, sports traumas, bleeding gums etc. we place a huge emphasis on preventive care and encourage frequent visits to remain dentally fit. The treatments available with Rathdrum Dental are: Examination, dietary advice, oral hygiene instruction, fissure sealants, filling, extractions, crowns, early orthodontic appliances. In conjunction to the above we also provide a full out of hours emergency service to cover toothaches, trauma, etc. please see our dental emergency section of the website.

  1. 16 Years and above.

Our emphasis on preventative care cannot be overstated and that is why we ask our patients to visit us regularly usually on a 6 month basis.

Rathdrum Dental provides all general dentistry to ensure you stay healthy and pain free. We regularly screen for oral cancer and other conditions in the mouth which may indicate the presence of systemic disease.

Through the use of digital radiography and the most cutting edge diagnostic techniques we can advise you of the presence of dental disease early and offer timely treatments to deal with any issues.

For the full ranges of treatment we provide and the prices please see our pricelist.
