Children’s Dentistry

As Oak Hill Dental, we emphasise on prevention and have a passion for educating our patients so that they may help themselves maintain a healthy mouth. This is also the case for children’s dentistry.

At Oak Hill Dental, we want to help form a firm dental routine into your child’s day, so they develop a love for looking after their teeth rather than avoiding it. We want your child’s first visit with us to be fun and pleasant visit for them, so this sets them up with a happy relationship with dentists for life.

Dental decay and discomfort in children is extremely common and a recent survey has shown that 1 in 4 children have some sort of dental decay. This can cause a number of problems for the child in eating, problems sleeping, pain and even speech development.

Although we can treat the tooth decay, our main goal is in education and empowering parents and children with the tools they need to prevent it from happening in the first place. Learning about dietary needs, nutrition and also the appropriate use of fluoride are all vital in prevention.

Our resident Consultant Orthodontist, Dr. Suhaym Mubeen, is at hand to answer any questions you may have regarding straightening of your child’s teeth, so enquire today!

Symptom Checker

Milk or adult teeth can change colour for a number of reasons. If you have taken a knock to the tooth, over time it can change colour. If decay or a filling is present in the tooth, it can also change colour. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch and arrange an appointment.

The teeth will usually fall out in good time as the adult teeth develops beneath or around it. They can often hang on for some time before falling out. If you are uncertain, please book an appointment and one of our friendly dentists will happily take a look and offer advice!

This can often suggest an infection might be developing. Because infections can spread quickly in children, we would strongly encourage you to have it checked as soon as possible and ring us for an emergency appointment.

As teeth develop, they often come through with spaces between them and in different positions.

Whilst this can remedy itself, early orthodontic therapy can prevent them getting worse and help to straighten them preventing prolonged treatment later.

If you have any concerns, speak to the dentist at your check up and we can arrange a free chat appointment with our resident orthodontist, Dr.Suhaym Mubeen.

Frequently Asked Questions

You should arrange an appointment as soon as your child’s teeth start to appear. We can check to ensure they are coming through correctly as well as offer advice on how to keep them clean and prevent problems with your little one’s milk teeth.

We would want to see children every 6 months for a check up.

This is usually caused by frequently snacking on sugary foods. A lot of children’s snacks have hidden sugars in them. Please check the ingredients!

We would recommend replacing sugary snacks with fruit and restrict sugary snacks as a treat immediately after mealtimes.

Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste will remove plaque that can cause tooth decay. Supervise your child’s brushing and brush their teeth for them at least until they are 7 years old to ensure they are brushing all of their teeth correctly.

I am thrilled to express my immense gratitude for the exceptional care provided by Dr. orthodontist Suhaym Mubeen. The level of dedication, compassion, and professionalism exhibited by him surpasses all expectations. Dr. Suhaym's approach is marked by thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and meticulousness. His genuine concern for his patients is unparalleled. As a perfectionist, I greatly appreciated his unwavering attention to detail throughout my two-year treatment. His passion for his chosen profession is evident, and his involvement and care were nothing short of outstanding. One of the aspects that truly sets Dr. Suhaym apart is his willingness to take the time to explain each step of the treatment process, ensuring that I understood the purpose and benefits of every decision made. His explanations helped me make well-informed choices for my long-term oral health, instilling confidence and trust in his expertise. Every visit to Dr. Suhaym's office was a joyful experience, thanks not only to the exceptional services he provides but also to his exceptional team of colleagues, including the hygienists and general dentistry practitioners. The reception staff deserves a special mention for their friendliness, professionalism, and ability to create a welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be a patient of this outstanding practice. In summary, there are simply not enough words of thanks to adequately convey my gratitude to Dr. Suhaym Mubeen. His level of care, commitment, and professionalism is truly second to none. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in search of an orthodontist who will go above and beyond to provide an exceptional experience and deliver outstanding results.

Just finished my final Invisalign session with orthodontist Suhaym Mubeen and felt compelled to leave a review after the incredible service I've received from him and his team over the past year. His diligence and attention to detail has been amazing and I am beyond happy with the results. He works and communicates with great clarity and care. And whilst he conducts himself very professionally, he does so with a warm, friendly energy that has honestly made the whole experience really nice. What a legend.

I received first class treatment from Dr. Ali. Dental treatment is never a pleasure but the process of installing an implant was virtually painless and the procedure was competently conducted.

Fantastic dentist practice. Ive had wisdom teeth problems for over 4 years and recently had a coronectomy on both sides at a NHS hospital near me. One side would not heal and I was in constant pain, I was told for 6 months that it has healed and the pain is jaw related and I should just continue with pain killers. I sent the photos and x-rays to Dr Ali and he was more than happy to walk me through what needed to be done and spent time listening to me and was genuinely interested in helping (and not in it for a profit as I've had in other private practices). I am now pain free after months of constant pain, and I am so grateful to Dr Ali and his team for their help.

It took seven weeks to go from smashed front teeth to veneers and a perfect smile thanks to Dr Ali and the team at Oak Hill Dental Practice. Eight weeks before my wedding I fell and suffered serious damage to my face and teeth. Over the following weeks and a series of appointments Dr Ali set about repairing the damage, each session gave me more hope that I’d have a toothy grin for my wedding photos. Dr Ali and the team were totally supportive and reassuring during the treatment. And the result of the dental work was amazing, I had to tell people I’d had an injury, they wouldn’t have known otherwise. I’m loathed to change dentists and despite moving away from the area I stayed with Oak Hill as I know they are great, that confidence paid off. I can thoroughly recommend the entire team at Oak Hill Dental Practice, you’ll be in good hands

After recently finishing a series of dental treatments, leading to the fitting of a new implant and two replacement crowns for my front teeth, I have nothing but the highest praise for the team at the Oak Hill Dental & Implant Centre. After the initial consultation, assessment, and CT scan - which revealed insufficient bone to take an implant - Dr Moshin Ali drafted an impressive four-phase plan which was described to me clearly and professionally and in a manner that put me completely at ease. The most daunting procedures - including both bone and gum grafting surgeries - went extremely well, and the aftercare was excellent with follow up calls from the doctor's reassuringly calm and efficient assistant, Mihaela. As we came towards the end of the treatments Moshin took a great deal of time and care to achieve a very natural look and I am delighted with the results. Kudos also to Steve and the other receptionists who are always most welcoming, patient and helpful when you arrive or call. I have no hesitation in recommending this practise. Thank you so much!
