Pediatric Dentistry

Dental care for kids is especially important. Habits formed in childhood set the tone for the future, ensuring years of strong and beautiful teeth. At Tridont Dental Centre, our dentists provide oral health examinations and preventive care for patients as young as one year of age. As soon as your child’s first tooth emerges, it’s a good idea to introduce them to the dentist.

If you’re looking for a children’s dentist near you, call Tridont Dental Centre to learn about how we can help your child feel confident and enjoy a healthy smile as they get older. 

Dental Services for Kids

At young ages, prevention is key during dental visits. Kids are treated to oral health education and simple check-ups that prevent tooth decay. Tridont Dental Centre offers the following for children:

First Visits – If your child is visiting the dentist for the very first time, they are taken on a tour of the office and introduced to our staff members. Our goal is to create a welcoming environment where kids feel safe and comfortable. These first appointments are low-pressure and mostly serve as an opportunity for kids to get familiar with the surroundings.

Visual Health Check – Young patients, with just a few baby teeth, are provided with a quick look into the health of their smiles. Our dentist counts your child’s teeth and looks for any obvious areas of concern. For many kids at this age, the most important steps to take are cleaning teeth and gums with a damp rag, limiting their sugar intake, and ensuring that they do not take bottles to bed. The goal is to omit anything that can create an increased risk for decay.

Teeth Cleaning, Polishing, and Exams – Older children who are comfortable sitting in the dental chair can have their teeth examined with X-rays to look for soft spots on enamel. Teeth are then cleaned and polished to ensure debris and bacteria are thoroughly removed.

Why Bring Your Child to the Dentist?

Our dental team understands that first impressions are everything and the dentist is no exception. Showing kids that their dental office is a fun and safe place to be will help them feel good about going back for routine cleanings and maintenance. As adults, we understand that fear of the dentist is either created at a young age or even inherited from our parents. If you’ve ever had a less-than-positive experience at the dentist, you can understand how that can affect your opinion of and willingness to go to the dentist. Kids are no different.

At Tridont Dental Centre, we strive to create an environment where kids feel worry-free. With excellent oral care habits that include twice yearly visits, your child can enjoy a beautiful and healthy smile for a lifetime.
