Development of Good Dental Habits

Bad dental hygiene practices can cause tooth diseases and other health problems. Your child can learn good dental practice by going to the dentist. Children will find it easier to maintain this dental habit when their permanent teeth erupt if they are taught how to brush baby teeth correctly early.

Good habits can last a lifetime when formed early!

Healthy Teeth Save Money

The earlier your child starts practicing good oral health, the fewer dentist appointments they will require in the long term. As much as we love seeing our little patients, your child shouldn’t have to visit the dentist frequently. While we’re always available to assist you in case of need, corrective pediatric dentistry can be costly. We hope that your child won’t require any intervention outside of periodic check-ups because it can also create discomfort and anxiety in them.

Supports the Development of Healthy Teeth

While your teeth are completely formed, your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw are still developing and changing daily. Backed by the Canadian Dental Association, we always recommend you take your child to see a dentist as early as the child’s first birthday (and, of course, continue with routine visits throughout their lives!

A Healthy Smile Leads to a Happy Kid

It can be embarrassing or detrimental to your child’s confidence to deal with oral health issues like tooth decay. Giving your child oral health care and the support they require to develop a confident, healthy smile is your responsibility as a parent and ours at Macleod Trail Dental.

Preventing Oral Health Issues

Children’s teeth are more prone to tooth decay. Early detection of cavities in baby teeth is essential since neglecting them could result in more serious dental problems. Additionally, identifying bite issues early on and initiating interventional therapies can reduce the severity and expense of subsequent orthodontic treatment.

Even though your baby’s milk teeth will eventually fall out, giving them regular dental care from the start is still important. This will help them avoid tooth decay in their milk teeth, ensure that their adult teeth erupt healthily, and help them develop good dental hygiene habits.

At Macleod Trail Dental, we cater to children from six months to the emergence of their last adult teeth and even into adolescence.

Consider making a casual visit to our pediatric dental clinic a few days ahead without an appointment. Let your child or children play in the waiting area so they may become used to the equipment and environment.
Next, a few days before the visit, describe the cleaning method to your kids, even if they need to appear older to understand it. Use a toy for a demonstration to set expectations.
On the appointment day, arrive early to guarantee a calm environment free from extraneous obligations. Until their dentist appointment is due, allow your child to play and become comfortable.
Bring a special toy or a well-known book to offer comfort and security to the experience.

Our team is trained to handle anxious children, creating a comfortable and reassuring environment. In case your child experiences severe anxiety when they see the dentist, we provide several treatments.
We will refer your child to a specialist, such as a pedodontist or oral surgeon, who may use anesthesia if they are nervous. We can use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help your child stay calm if they are experiencing mild to moderate anxiety.
