Routine check-ups for children of every age help reduce costly future dental treatments.
So the sooner your children start seeing a children’s dentist, the better!
It’s a new century, a new millennium. Thankfully, dentistry has come such a long way in the past three decades that your children will never have to unlearn the fear of visiting their dentist. And at KB Village Dental, we make sure your child’s earliest dental experiences are as welcoming, fun, and engaging as we can make them.
From infants to teenagers, your children will feel safe, comfortable and treated like a dental superhero.
All of our infant and toddler patients are introduced to their dentist well before dental issues arise. With mum, dad, or another well-loved guardian at their side, we’ll spend time introducing your wee ones to the fun of a dental chair ride (moving the chair up and down and tilting it back to show how comfortable, safe and enjoyable it is), counting their teeth with them, and showing the ones with baby teeth (and their chair-side guardians) how to brush properly.
If this friendly, routine screening activity starts early enough in your children’s lives, there’s no reason why their baby and adult teeth shouldn’t remain cavity-free throughout their lives.
By the time your children’s permanent teeth erupt, we will already have made such a fuss over their pearly-white smiles that they will have developed sufficient pride to continue to take great care of their oral hygiene all by themselves.
At every check-up, your children’s dentist will…
Your child’s dentist may also…
- Take oral x-rays to spot decay, bone infections, and the location and arrangement of un-erupted teeth. (Please Note: We use a digital x-ray system that delivers up to 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays.)
- Strengthen your child’s teeth with a fluoride treatment (when deemed necessary by us and approved by you)
- Recommend the placement of sealants (plastic coatings) over the chewing surfaces of back teeth, where decay frequently occurs, to protect them from food and plaque.
By starting early and establishing a routine oral care plan, your children can be among the first generations that never have to experience cavities and many other invasive dental treatments.
