Oakridge Crossing Dental is a proud provider of SW Calgary Children’s Dentistry services. Our team of dental professionals creates a friendly and relaxing environment for our young patients because we understand that visiting the dentist can be an intimidating experience for young children.
Studies have proven that when children have positive dental experiences, they are more likely to visit their dentist on a regular basis into adulthood. Our team works hard to build a trusting relationship with both you and your child to begin this positive journey towards oral health and overall wellness. Did you know that tooth decay is considered to be the single most common chronic childhood disease and accounts for hundreds of hours of lost school time? Oakridge Crossing Dental recommends all children should begin their dental experience at an early age, which is why we follow the recommendation made by the Canadian Dental Association for children to have an assessment by a dentist within six months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age.
During your child’s appointment, our dental team will identify problem areas in the mouth. We then plan treatment to correct these concerns with dental services such as white fillings to treat existing cavities and fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth between Teeth Cleanings. Early dental visits also help us identify problems that may also affect proper nutritional intake because of an improper bite. Initial dental visits treat issues related to speech development, habit control for thumb sucking and other oral habits that may affect the health of the teeth and gums. We also diagnose concerns with how the teeth are erupting and plan for future orthodontic intervention.
As parents, we want to ensure that our children develop and maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine that continues into adulthood. To learn more about our SW Calgary Children’s Dentistry Services, please contact us at (403) 475-9800 or request your appointment today!
