Parents want to do everything they can to ensure that their children are as healthy as possible and have the best possible to start in life. Sunshine Dental Group are a paediatric dental care clinic based in Sunshine that perfectly understands this, and we provide many options that will greatly benefit your child’s dental health in the long term. We are proud to offer free consultations to help determine what solution is right for your child’s needs.
The Child Dental Benefit Scheme (CDBS) was introduced by the Federal Government to allow families to receive benefits, such as Family Tax Benefit A (FTB-A) payments. The CDBS will alleviate a great deal of financial burden with our first-rate paediatric dental care. This treatment is designed to help keep your children’s teeth in great condition to last throughout their lives. The CDBS can provide parents with up to $1,000 in Medicare assistance for children aged between 2-17 years of age that can be used over a two-calendar year period on the paediatric dental care your child needs. Under the paediatric dental care, we can provide your child with the following treatments: check-ups, teeth cleaning, fissure sealants, fillings, x-rays, extractions, root canals, and much more.
Your dentist will explain upfront all the probable expenses that will be incurred and if there will be any additional work needed following the initial examination. This will allow you to decide how quickly or slowly use your $1,000 allocation over the two calendar years the money is designated for.
Conventional braces use bonded brackets and flexible wires held by bands to exert pressure and gently and gradually correct the positioning of your child’s teeth. This paediatric dental care treatment may take 12-24 months to work and a removable retainer must be worn for a period of time after the braces have been removed.
Damon System braces are an alternative to conventional braces, as they fit more discreetly and are more comfortable in the mouth. These are available in both metal and clear brackets that are will be attached to your child’s teeth. Our clinic also offers STb Social 6 Lingual Braces that are not as noticeable as conventional braces and it only take 16 weeks for the treatment to be completed.
For those concerned about how braces are aesthetically unappealing, our clinic also offers a clear correct dentist that can cater to your needs. Clear correct is an invisible alternative to braces where your child would be wearing a series of clear aligners that are replaced every two weeks. A great benefit of this treatment is that it is shorter than most other paediatric dental treatments.
