It is important that children develop good oral habits as they can continue with these habits into adulthood and help them maintain healthy and clean teeth. It is commonly assumed that baby teeth are not as important because they will eventually fall out, but the condition of one's baby teeth may impact the development of their adult teeth!
Our Mississauga dentists suggest that your child's first dental appointment should be around the age of 1 (or when their first teeth start coming out). During the child's dental appointment, our dentist will examine the condition of their teeth and gums. They will provide dental cleaning with topical fluoride and some information on how to continue good oral hygiene at home.
Taking proper care of your child's oral health is of utmost importance to prevent tooth decay or damage. When it comes to common dental problems among children, the most common issues are tooth decay, thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, lip sucking, and early tooth loss.
Our expert dentists and assistants are experienced in providing dental care for children over the past two decades. We know how to make the dental experience comfortable in a way that will make your child feel at ease and excited to see us.
The best age for a child's first visit to our Mississauga dental office will differ for different people. However, child dental services are recommended for every child as soon as their tooth development has started (usually around their first birthday). Bringing your child in as early as possible ensures that we can monitor your child's dental health over time and work towards optimal oral health.
