Getting Affordable Dental Care for Children
If you are looking for affordable dental care in Cambridge, New Zealand, for your children and adolescents, there are some options. Children in the country that meet eligibility criteria for public-funded disability and health services are entitled to free basic oral health services. It’s important to get your child enrolled as soon as possible so you can arrange the first checkup. The first visit should be between their first and second birthdays.
The standard treatments for affordable dental care are a routine examination to check for decay and look for any problems, X-rays to check for problems that can’t be seen normally, fluoride treatment, fissure sealants, cleaning, and fillings to restore teeth that have been affected by any decay. Extractions to remove teeth affected can also be done. If your child needs any additional treatment, he or she will be referred to another provider. Some treatments can still be free but others you will need to pay for.
