Children need parental help and support in guiding them in keeping their dental health up to date and keeping their teeth healthy and clean. Prevention starts at home, with good eating habits and proper daily cleaning of the teeth. According to the Canadian Dental Association (CDA), it is recommended that the dental examination of infants is done by a dentist within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. Our goal is to have your child visit the dentist before a problem occurs thus encouraging prevention rather than treatment. A dental examination is usually done every 6 months for children not only to promote good oral and dental health but also to monitor normal growth of their jaw bones. The examination may include dental radiographs to aid detection of abnormal findings that cannot be seen by a clinical examination alone. Please ask us for more information about your children’s dental needs and concerns.
