Not All Children Fear The Dentist!
We completely understand that some young ones may fear the dentist, and that’s a-OK! We are here to make your children’s dental visit a memorable and positive experience. Our children’s dentists in Edmonton understand how to deal with the fear of the dentist, so don’t worry because many children overcome their fear after they first visit our office.
Positive dental experiences are our #1 priority when it comes to your kids, that’s why we make it our mission to make sure that your child has a positive experience each and every they come to see us.
What To Expect From Your Child's Dental Visit?
Our dentists are here to take care of all of your child’s preventative dentistry needs, while also looking for and helping treat common chronic childhood diseases related to the mouth, gums, and other common oral problems.
Dental cavities are seen more and more often these days, so that’s something our children’s dentists in Edmonton pay close attention to. Schedule a dental appointment and allow us to take a good look at what’s going on.
Catching Problems At An Early Age
Catching your child’s dental problems is important, but it’s more important to catch them early and get your child proper treatment.
But, in order to get the proper treatment, parents need to take them to a dentist and get them checked out. We take care of kids of all ages, and even infants! X-rays are available and we are more than happy to help your child regardless of their age.
If you make an appointment with us and come regularly for checkups (every six months, or so), you will be able to catch problems at an early stage and help your child maintain great dental health.
Come by our dental office and see what we can do for your kid’s pearly whites!
Even if they have baby teeth, it’s important to keep them clean and healthy until the first tooth falls out. Baby teeth also need dental care, so don’t be persuaded otherwise.
When your child loses their first teeth, that’s a sign of healthy teeth change, so don’t mistake this for a problem. Make an appointment, bring the tooth that fell out, and we’ll take a look at it!

Common Oral Health Problems With Kids
There are some problems that show more often in children’s dentistry, and we’re aware of that. Here are some of the problems that your kids may have with their teeth that you may not know about:
Tooth decay is one of the most common problems with kids in this day and age. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that are found in your child’s mouth. These bacteria make a sticky substance called plaque that can eat away at a tooth’s enamel.
Poor oral hygiene can raise the risk of your child developing tooth decay. This is a serious matter, and can cause problems in your child’s development, so our dentists will get right on to it if your child has this problem!
Cavities are parts of, in this case, your child’s teeth that have been permanently damaged by tooth decay. Caries or cavities are easily treatable if the right treatment is applied and if you bring your child in on time and/or regularly.
Dental cavities can lead to serious problems, and that’s a statement that the Canadian Dental Association also agrees with. A big part of being parents when it comes to dental care is caring about cavities and the prevention of them forming.
This is possible only if you have early dental visits that will see the risk and remove the plaque that is impossible to remove by brushing and flossing.
Improperly Cleaned Teeth
Although we all encourage our children from a young age to clean, brush, and floss on a regular basis, there are simply some things that can’t be removed without professional cleanings. That’s why it’s important we also teach our kids from a young age that it’s normal to go and get their teeth cleaned by a professional or a doctor!
Children do not have the same focus and commitment to cleaning, so they often require a helping hand, especially if they got their permanent teeth.
Also, children learn how to properly clean the entirety of their mouth from both their parents and their dentists, so come by our dental office and get your child checked out!
