The way that an adult feels about dentist visits can probably be traced back to their earliest experiences as a child. At City Smiles Dental, we're determined to make sure that your child has positive ones here. It is vital that kids have proper attention paid to their teeth during those crucial formative years, and that is much easier to accomplish when you don't have to drag him or her kicking and screaming. Our Waterdown pediatric dentist strives to make appointments free of anxiety, comfortable, and devoid of pain.
From the moment that your child and you walk in to our office, you will notice that the environment is a positive and friendly one. We have a dedicated play area for kids that includes a gaming machine, iPads, Xbox, Sony PSP Vita, Nintendo DS, and a wide array of movies that are designed to appeal to your child. Furthermore, we have toys and helium balloons. All of this will help to distract your child, of course, but also will put she or he into a happy mood, one which our Waterdown pediatric dentist will help to maintain.
Your child will have a chance to meet our staff and to become familiar with the equipment and tools. When they don't seem so strange, they won't seem so scary, after all. We recommend a twice-yearly visit for an exam, periodic x-rays, an analysis of your child's bite (occlusion), and a teeth cleaning. All of this supports the goal of preventing tooth decay and the cavities that result from it, as well as keeping his or her gums vibrant and strong. Our Waterdown pediatric dentist will also help you with vital tips on dealing with teething, supporting your child's oral health with the proper nutritional choices, and recommending helpful methods, such as fluoride treatments, for keeping cavities at bay.
Our Waterdown pediatric dentist will take into account your child's risk factors, including heredity, when making suggestions. For some kids, more than two visits a year may be best. With primary (baby) teeth that will eventually fall out to make way for permanent (adult) teeth, it is important to keep a close eye on the well-being of those teeth in order to facilitate a smooth and problem-free transition. That is just one of the many benefits we provide for you and for your child. Make an appointment for her or him today.
