Did you know that the American Dental Association recommends that you bring your child to the dentist as soon as their first tooth has erupted and no later than their first birthday?
Without regular visits to your Kid’s Dentist, your child could:
- Become susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.
- Engage in prolonged thumb-sucking or other unwanted oral habits.
- Be exposed to teething irritations.
- Develop a fear of the dentist.
Visiting a Children’s Dentist early on will be extremely beneficial to both you and your child. Not only will our Calgary dentists provide advice or recommend special preventive care to safeguard against certain dental problems, they can also:
- Teach you how to clean your child’s teeth and identify his/her fluoride needs.
- Help you create a sustainable dental hygiene program in the home, leading to cavity prevention.
- Tell you how your child’s teeth and jaw are developing.
- Help instill good lifetime oral hygiene habits.
- Save you costs in the long run by avoiding extensive dental work such as fillings or root canals.
Macleod Trail Dental’s professional team of Calgary Children’s dentists strive to provide you and your child with the most technologically advanced treatments in a warm and caring environment. We help you protect your child’s health and teeth through the following services:
