Encouraging your kids to keep their teeth clean and healthy can be difficult when they fear going to the dentist. We encourage families to bring their children in at a young age for their first dental exam so that they can become comfortable with the experience.
We at Rockwest Dental pride ourselves on offering a safe and welcoming environment for all our patients—young ones included. During your child’s exam, a dentist will clean your child’s teeth while assessing any risk of tooth decay or future issues. We will also take the time to discuss with you preventative therapy, teaching your child to floss and brush their teeth regularly, and any other dental concerns you may have.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends that children have their first dental assessment within six months of the first tooth eruption, or by one year of age. Our goal is to make sure your children don’t face any future issues with their teeth and the best way to do that is to start early.
Please contact us at our Mississauga office for a free consult to discuss booking your child in for a visit.
