Friendly and Relaxing Children’s Dentist In Brampton
When caring for your child’s oral health, it is important to build healthy habits at a young age. Typically, we recommend visiting us when the first baby tooth erupts around 6 months of age. At this early age, the parents should make certain they’re brushing their infant’s teeth daily to help the child develop good brushing habits. It’s important to know that the earlier you start, the easier it is for the habit to set in.
Your little one’s teeth will develop in 3 different stages. Deciduous dentition, which starts from 6 months of age to 6 years of age. At this stage your child will develop baby teeth. Then comes the mixed dentition stage which develops from 6 years to approximately 13 years. At this point, children have a combination of permanent and baby teeth. The final stage is known as permanent dentition which takes place from the ages of 13 and up where your child has an entire set of adult teeth.
The main purpose of children dentistry is to prevent diseases from entering the mouth (teeth, gums and dental structures) or treat any issues that may occur. Preventative dental appointments include dental cleaning, regular checkups, fluoride application, pits and fissure sealing and hygiene education. By utilizing these prevention methods, we can maintain and promote your child’s oral health, as well as help your child understand the best methods of 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 eliminates potential problems which may arise in the future. Our experienced dentists can provide the best treatment options for your children. We offer complimentary braces and Invisalign consultations if your child is self-conscious or unhappy with the appearance of their smile.
