A Child-Friendly Environment
At Green Plaza Dental Centre we want children to feel comfortable and relaxed as soon as they walk in our front door. Our goal is to create positive dental experiences so that children are more likely to maintain life-long healthy dental habits, and allow them to feel good about visiting the dentist.
Our waiting area also offers a children's play space so little ones can keep busy while waiting for their appointment.
Your Child's First Visit
Our dentist recommends that children see a dentist by 12 months of age. By this point, a baby's first (primary) teeth will have begun to erupt, and your dentist will be able to monitor their progress, ensuring proper development. This is important for the permanent teeth, which will follow primary teeth.
Your Child's Developing Smile
Children will have 20 primary (baby) teeth, typically by the age of 3. Gradually, these teeth will be replaced with a full set of 28 permanent (adult) teeth, and much later, four molars called wisdom teeth.
Dental Care for Kids
Routine dental visits are as essential for children as they are for adults.
At Green Plaza Dental Centre, we can tailor our dental services to meet the unique oral health needs of children.
- Hygiene Cleanings & Oral Exams
Visiting the dentist every six months for cleanings and exams will help ensure the health of your child's teeth until they are ready to fall out naturally and be replaced with permanent teeth.
Your child's hygienist will spend some time each visit reviewing proper oral hygiene techniques so that your child is getting proper care between visits.
- Fillings & Fluoride Treatment
If your child develops a cavity or is at risk of decay, your dentist may recommend a filling and preventive fluoride treatments.
- Mouth Guards
Mouth guards may be an option for children with minor misalignment issues. Speak with your dentist to see if mouth guards are the right choice for your child.
- Frenectomies (Lip & Tongue Ties)
Frenectomies can be performed on babies and children if oral function is compromised, restricting the ability to eat or speak properly. This is commonly referred to as being 'tongue-tied' or 'lip-tied'.
