At our Prince Albert dental office, we can meet every dental need for patients of all ages, even the youngest member of your family. We love to see your child smile as much as you do and want to make sure it stays happy and healthy. Our dentists and staff know how to make your little one feel comfortable and at ease in the chair, giving them positive dental experiences that lead to a lifetime of strong dental health.
To set your child on the path to lifelong oral health, you should begin at an early age to implement healthy oral habits into their schedule. In addition to daily brushing as soon as their teeth first come in, you can start bringing them into our office for checkups every six months once your child has reached their first birthday. We will gently examine your child to make sure their teeth are decay free and growing in nicely. As they continue to become acclimated to our staff and our office, we will add in dental cleanings to remove any built-up plaque and begin teaching your child healthy oral habits to take care of their smiles.
One of the best ways to strengthen your teeth against harmful bacteria is to get a fluoride treatment for your child at their checkup and cleaning appointment. This mineral provides extra reinforcement for the enamel, preventing decay. To protect their smile from cavities between checkups, ask us about fluoride treatments for your child.
Because they are still learning how to care for their teeth, children are particularly susceptible to tooth decay, especially on the chewing surfaces of their premolars and molars. The good news is that it’s possible to give your child’s smile extra protection against decay with dental sealants. Dental sealants are applied in a liquid form to these surfaces and then are hardened to form a thin plastic coating that blocks bacteria from reaching the enamel. It only takes a few minutes to apply dental sealants, and results can last for as long as 10 years.
Do you want to learn more about dental sealants and our other children’s dentistry services? Call our office today with your questions or to schedule an appointment. We are happy to serve our young patients from Prince Albert and all surrounding areas in Saskatchewan.
