Routine dental care is just as important for children as it is for adults. At Pickering Village Dental Office in Ajax, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Dental Experiences
At Pickering Village Dental Office, we believe that helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments sets the foundation for excellent oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer an extensive range of dental services for children and their developing smiles. We understand that visiting the dentist can feel intimidating, so we aim to keep the environment friendly, calm and inviting. We explain each step of the process in language your child can understand, work at their pace and take breaks if they get overwhelmed.
Plus, there's always something fun to look forward to during their visits, from our in-office contests for patients of all ages to the video games they can play in our reception area. They can even watch TV in the dental chair during their appointments.
Your Child's First Visit
Babies should visit a dentist by the time they turn six months old, or at minimum by their first birthday. By this point, a baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to emerge. It is a pivotal time to spot any problems before they develop into big concerns.
Services for Children
At Pickering Village Dental Office, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Seeing the dentist for routine cleanings and exams when your child is young will help protect their primary teeth until they are ready to fall out to be replaced naturally by permanent adult teeth. During each appointment we will go over proper preventive hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile receives proper care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If the dentist finds that your child is experiencing misalignment issues, is at risk of tooth decay or develops a cavity, restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards may also be recommended.
