Children's Dental Care

When looking after your child’s dental health, it is important to start at an early age. Usually, we recommend a fun dental visit by 1 year so the child can become familiar with the office and the dentist can evaluate for good dental health. At this young age, the parents should make certain they’ve been brushing their infant’s teeth every day in an effort to enable your child to establish a brushing habit. It’s important to understand that the earlier you begin the easier it is to form a routine.

Your child’s teeth will develop in 3 distinct stages. Primary dentition, or baby teeth usually starts erupting into the mouth from 6 months of age to 24 months. Mixed dentition stage develops from 6 years to approximately 13 years. At this time, kids possess a combination of permanent and baby teeth. The last phase is referred to as permanent dentition which takes place from the ages of 13 and up. All these ages are approximate.

Prevention starts by cleaning, regular checkups, fluoride application, pits and fissure sealing and hygiene education. By employing these prevention approaches, we can maintain and promote your child’s dental health, as well as help your child understand the best techniques for dental care.

Making certain the permanent teeth have enough space to erupt and keeping an eye on the right eruption sequence of teeth is very important as this helps to eliminate potential problems which may arise in the future.

Canada Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP)

We are accepting the Government of Canada Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP). The CDCP is a new Canadian Dental Care Plan where individuals that do not have access to an employer provided or private dental insurance plan can apply for. As an important part of dental care and overall health, the Government of Canada recognizes the expenses that can be associated with dental treatment and is committed to helping Canadians receive the dental treatments that are required while also making it more affordable.

The CDCP is offered to help low income families who do not have dental insurance by covering some costs associated with dental services for families with net income that is under $90,000.
