Frequently Asked Questions

  • When should kids start going to the dentist?

    New parents often wonder, when should kids start going to the dentist? This is a very important question, as you certainly want to get your child’s dental hygiene off to the right start. The Canadian Dental Association recommends that your child visit the dentist either within six months of their first tooth coming in or before they turn one year old. The ultimate goal, however, is to have your child visit a provider of pediatric dentistry before any problem’s start to arise. By visiting early and often, your child’s dentist can identify and easily fix small cavities or misaligned teeth before they potentially become a much larger problem. However, cases like these are rare. Typically your child’s first few dental visits are a quick examination and a positive confirmation that, as parents, you are properly cleaning your children’s teeth. Further, studies have also shown that children who start visiting the dentist early in life are more likely to grow up without fear of future visits!

  • Any tips for making oral care fun for my child?

    Keeping home oral care fun and positive is key. Incorporate music, laughter, and positive reinforcement to make the experience enjoyable for your child.

  • How can I help my child learn about dental health?

    Read your children fun dental books. This increases their knowledge about teeth and how to keep them clean. These books are also very helpful in preparing your child for the first dental visit with us.

  • How often should my child have a dental check-up?

    We recommend seeing us every 6 months for a routine check-up to ensure your child’s oral health is on track.

  • Is flossing important for children?

    Yes, flossing is crucial for children, especially in areas where teeth touch. These contact areas are prone to plaque and bacteria build-up and require thorough cleaning.

  • What are some healthy snack options for my child?

    Eat healthy, balanced snacks, and avoid the sugary ones. Great snacks for healthy teeth are cheese, plain yogurt, and vegetables.

  • What should I know about brushing my child’s teeth?

    Brush your child’s teeth twice daily with a small children’s toothbrush. The type and amount of toothpaste depend on your child’s age and cavity risk. Please consult with us for personalized recommendations.
