Dentist for Kids
Parents and children, welcome to Kids Dentist @ Oakville
Our doctors are dedicated to providing your kid with the finest possible treatment. At our offices, we urge parents to accompany their children into the treatment room to make them feel more at ease.
What is the significance of pediatric dentistry?
Dental care is essential from the time the first tooth appears (usually between 6 and 12 months.) It has an impact on your child’s capacity to develop healthy permanent teeth, a regular jaw, and the ability to speak and eat properly. As more baby teeth and permanent teeth emerge, good dental care becomes even more important. But it isn’t just what happens in our office; we work with both children and parents to help them create healthy habits that will (hopefully) last a lifetime. We help keep little smiles squeaky-clean even between visits by doing everything from brushing to flossing to monitoring sugar intake.
Your First Visit
The initial dental appointment for a baby or toddler is often only a brief introduction to establish the dentist’s office as a secure, welcoming environment. Taking the time to do so will make the rest of your trips much less stressful.
Our knowledgeable team understands how stressful a first visit may be, especially if you’re a new parent and your child’s first tooth came as a surprise, so they’ll be there to guide you through every step.
A child’s general health and happiness are dependent on their dental health. That’s why we do everything we can to ensure that our children’s smiles remain healthy now and in the future.
Our strategy for prevention is as follows:
- Cleanings and examinations on a regular basis
- Treatments with fluoride (including a silver diamine fluoride option)
- Cavity detection at an early stage
- Orthodontic planning in its early stages
Why Regular Dental Visits Are Important
Regular dental appointments are necessary for children’s teeth and gums to remain healthy. Plaque build-up, tooth decay, gum health, oral cancer, and other issues will be examined by your pediatric dentist.
Plaque and tartar build-up can create problems in a short amount of time, especially if good oral hygiene is not practiced in between dental appointments. Food, drinks, and candies containing artificial colors can potentially discolor your teeth.
