The dentists at Cedar Dental Centre in Kamloops provide dental care and treatment options geared to the unique needs of children.
Positive early dental experiences for children are the foundation of life-long oral health.
Kids who get off to a good start early on with their dental treatment and care are more likely to value good oral health and keep regular dental appointments as they grow up into adults. Making those early dental experiences comfortable and happy for children also teaches them that visiting the dentist is nothing to be afraid of.
This will start them off on the right foot, so that they're not as likely to develop anxiety around dental care as adults.
At Cedar Dental, we're proud to offer a range of dental services for children's unique needs.
Dental cleanings and checkups are just as important for kids as they are for grownups. Children should visit the dentist at least every six months for a professional dental cleaning and checkup to help prevent problems from developing in the first place, and to catch and treat those that are already developing early.
Baby teeth are essential for healthy oral development, and even for the health of the whole body. Healthy baby teeth help children chew and digest their food properly, and they also act as guides for the adult teeth as they grow. Visiting the dentist regularly when your child is young will help maintain the baby teeth, and ensure that the adult teeth grow into the proper positions.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps prevent tooth decay. It is found throughout the earth's crust and is widely distributed in nature. We offer fluoride treatment for children to help keep their teeth strong, and more resistant to dental decay, as they grow. Learn More
Dental sealants are plastic coatings that can be applied to the chewing surface of the molars and premolars to help protect them from decay. These teeth often have deep fissures in them that are difficult for children to clean with regular brushing. Sealants help seal off these fissures of that bacteria and plaque cannot build up inside them.
Your dentist will monitor your child's growing smile for any sign of developing misalignments. If a problem is caught early enough, early orthodontic intervention can be undertaken to prevent the problem from getting worse. In turn, this can prevent the need for more invasive orthodontic treatment when your child is older.
During each appointment, the dentist or hygienist will review proper oral hygiene routines with your child, to make sure that each tooth is getting a proper cleaning. This can include brushing and flossing instruction, suggestions for supplementary hygiene aids, dietary advice, and more.
