Do you treat children?
Yes! At Capalaba Park Dental, we love seeing our younger patients. At their first visit, your child will meet with the dentist and have an opportunity to get used to the dental chair. The dentist will make a visual inspection to make sure that the child’s teeth and gums are healthy and identify any risk of dental decay. It is recommended for the child to come back regularly every six months so the dentist can spot any cavities or crowding that may occur.
We recommend children to come in from the age of 18 months to
familiarise themselves with the environment. Being a father to a 5 and 7 year old, Dr. Gary Nahal understands the need for early intervention for habits such as mouth breathing and thumb sucking which can lead to development of dental problems in growing kids.
Our team offers paediatric friendly services such as cleans, fissure sealants, Myobraces, mouth guards and orthodontic services including Fast Braces, Invisalign and Clear Correct.

The Myobrace®System is preventive pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth, unlocking natural growth and development. Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15 and involves using a series of removable intra-oral appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each day plus overnight while sleeping.
