Having healthy teeth is vital for the overall oral health of your child. To have strong teeth throughout their lives, children should learn to care for their teeth and practise good oral hygiene habits at an early age. Our dentists at Gaslight Dental will discuss with you the methods of preventing tooth decay and cavities in your child’s teeth. With regular maintenance, the incidence of cavities in your child will be reduced.
Parents often ignore or overlook how diet plays an important role in maintaining oral health. We strongly believe introducing healthy tooth care practices and teaching children about the importance of a good diet decreases the risk of developing cavities. There are various factors that could lead to tooth decay in children, some of them being:
Irregular/improper brushing habits
Poor food choices
We offer a range of children’s dental care services including:
Regular check-ups: Prevention of tooth decay and good knowledge of oral hygiene are the keys to a happy and healthy smile. Regular checkups will thwart any cavity building and tooth decay.
Dental cleanings: This technique helps remove any plaque, tartar buildup or stains and polishes your child’s teeth.
Home-care instruction and diet advice: We have created a supportive and warm environment to foster your child’s oral health. Come to us and our dentists will sit with you and advice you on the nutritional diet your child needs.
It is not a surprising fact that most children fear dental treatment. The first dental consultation is a difficult one for your child, but it is an important milestone for parents. At Gaslight Dental, we create a comfortable and trusting environment to ensure your child is given the right introduction to dental care. We have state-of-the-art portable detection devices that are safe for your child, such as the Dexis CarivuTM that is used for procuring X-ray images of your child’s teeth. Keeping in mind that the best strategy for lifelong oral health starts at an early age, visit us in Medicine Hat today.
