Children’s dentistry is also known as Pediatric dentistry and it focuses on the oral health of young ones from infancy to adolescence.
Our multi-decade experienced Dental team uses uniquely tailored approaches to foster healthy dental habits early on, promoting a lifetime of healthy smiles for your young ones.
Children’s dentistry plays a critical role in ensuring oral health is established and maintained from an early age.
Primary teeth play essential roles in a child’s development, enabling them to chew and speak properly. Moreover, they act as placeholders for adult teeth.
Inadequate care can lead to serious health problems, emphasizing the importance of early oral health education.
Oral health is not an isolated aspect of a child's health; it's deeply connected to their overall well-being.
A healthy mouth can prevent conditions such as malnutrition, speech issues, and even academic troubles. Good oral health practices from a young age can foster a lifetime of healthy habits.
Pediatric dental visits can differ greatly from adult visits.
Routine checkups allow the dentist to monitor your child's dental development and ensure oral health. They are typically short and involve no or little treatment. During the checkup, the Pediatric dentist may perform a full exam of the teeth, jaws, bite, gums, and oral tissues to check growth, development, and oral health.
These check-ups some times take longer with children who experience dental anxiety or have troubles sitting still. We are experienced in working with children and can work around your happy active children!
Preventive treatments include fluoride applications and dental sealants which protect against cavities and other dental problems down the road.
In the event of oral health issues, corrective treatments may be necessary. These may include fillings, crowns, and other restorative procedures.
At Sage Dental, we strive to create a pleasant and comfortable environment for your child.
Our team employs a child-friendly language to explain procedures and treatments, allaying any fears they might have.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends the assessment of infants, by a dentist, within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. Starting dental visits early ensures early detection of potential dental issues, fostering healthier oral habits right from the start.
The cost of children's dentistry varies depending on the nature of the treatment required. Simple procedures like cleaning and check-ups are less expensive compared to more complex treatments like braces or Invisalign. At Sage Dental, we aim to provide top-quality Pediatric dental services at affordable prices.
Most dental insurance plans cover children's dentistry, including regular checkups, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and more. It's advisable to check your coverage with your insurance provider for the exact details. Good coverage is essential for a big family!
Fostering good dental habits early on is crucial for your child's oral health. We recommend:
Turn brushing and flossing into a fun activity. Use kid-friendly toothbrushes, flavoured toothpaste, and reward systems to encourage regular brushing and flossing.
Ensure your child eats a balanced diet, limiting sugary foods and drinks, which can lead to tooth decay.
As a leading provider of children's dentistry, Sage Dental is committed to ensuring your child's dental health is taken care of in a comfortable and caring environment. By embracing a child-centered approach, we aim to create positive dental experiences that can set the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
