A child’s early experience at the dental clinic shapes his or her perception of dental care. By creating positive experiences at McLennan Street Dental, we strive to take care of children’s oral health and prevent the development of dental phobias which keep a lot of people from visiting the dentist later in life.
We highly recommend that you make the first dental appointment for your child at around 2 years of age to see if all the baby teeth have come out straight.
We take care of all aspects of children’s dental care, with a strong focus on preventative dentistry. Our approach is minimally invasive, and we make sure that both the children and the parents are completely involved in the treatment process.
At McLennan Street Dental, you will find:
What can you do to help take care of your child’s teeth?
Bring your child in for a regular dental check-up every six months. The dentist may schedule additional visits if your child is susceptible to tooth decay or orthodontic problems. Along with regular dental visits, you can take an active role in helping your child keep his or her teeth healthy.
Regular visits ensure the health of baby teeth, and proper development of jaw bones
Baby teeth hold the space for permanent teeth to erupt in the future, and also contribute to the proper development of facial and jaw bones. If baby teeth are removed too early because of decay, it can result in the improper eruption of permanent teeth and other problems that may require invasive orthodontic treatment in the future.
Many children develop habits like thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, and breathing through the mouth which may contribute to malformation of teeth and development of bite problems. Bring your children for regular dental visits to make sure that their teeth are developing properly, and to nip any problems in fthe bud, allowing for proper development of permanent teeth, jaw and facial bones.
Regular dental checkups help in detection of early warning signs of certain health related issues. Visit your dentists regularly and stay healthy.
