The worry for most is that when we become old and grey, our teeth will rot and decay and eating will not be as easy or as enjoyable as it once was. But if we were to take into consideration that more than one in five children in South Africa have had at least one cavity by the age of four. And the simple truth that many children can get cavities as early as age two, we might be able to prevent our teeth from failing us much earlier on.
It is recommended that children see a dentist by their first birthday. It is important for children to receive proper preventive and routine oral health care by 12 months of age. At Dentist Yaka Dental Centre we help to establish happy and confident young dental patients who will be proud of their smile by providing a child-friendly environment and the very best paediatric dentistry around.
Most children and parents come to our practice for the first time, with some degree of anxiety. We understand the fears and uncertainties involved with visiting a dental practice for the first time. Therefore, we show our understanding and empathy for both the child and the parent. Our team has a considerable number of years experience with dedicated childcare and will work with the parents to ensure that the child's first trip to the dentist is a positive one that will reduce their fear.
We cater for children from 0 to 18 years of age and have extensive experience within each age group.
