At Park Square Dental Centre in Wetaskiwin, our dentists and team offer dental services for the specific needs of children.
It's recommended that children visit the dentist by their first birthday. Their primary (baby) teeth will have begun to erupt and it's important to monitor the health of these early teeth.
This also allows your dentist to be sure your child's teeth are developing properly, which is essential for the growth of their permanent teeth.
Our dentists and hygienists will show your child the best way to care for their teeth and gums at home, and will talk to them in language they understand.
If your child is becoming overwhelmed during their appointment, we will take breaks when needed and explain each step as we go.
At Park Square Dental Centre, we want children to feel comfortable from the moment they walk through our door. Our cheerful waiting room offers books and toys to keep children busy while waiting for their appointment.
Creating positive dental experiences from an early age will help children to feel good about visiting the dentist and promote healthy dental habits to last throughout their life.
At Park Square Dental Centre, our services can be geared towards the unique needs of children to keep their smiles healthy.
Regular cleanings and exams will help to keep your child's primary teeth healthy until they are ready to fall out be replaced with their permanent teeth.
Your child's hygienist or dentist will also review techniques for proper dental care during each appointment to be sure your child's smile is being cared for between visits.
If your child develops a cavity or is at risk of decay, restorative treatments such as fillings or dental sealants may be recommended by your dentist.
Your dentist may also recommend a mouth guard to treat any misalignment issues. Night teeth grinding (bruxism) or contact sports might benefit from mouth guards as well.
If your child is tongue-tied or lip-tied (a condition that restricts oral function, making eating or speaking difficult), our dentists can perform a frenectomy to alleviate this condition.
