Pediatric Dentistry (Children’s Dentistry)

Dental health plays a critical role in our overall well-being. Ideally, good dental habits should commence from a very early age, with parents actively encouraging children to understand and the benefits of good oral health habits. Children should be made aware that good oral health will reduce damage to their teeth and gums over a lifetime. Brushing and flossing are essential in maintaining sound dental health and as important as a healthy diet and active lifestyle.

Even so, some children may experience dental health problems at some point which will require professional care.

At Dental Suites, it is our pleasure to care for your child from the eruption of their first incisors, through any times of distress or soreness, until they receive their full complement of permanent teeth. We take delight in teaching them the correct early oral hygiene habits, which will serve them well throughout their life. Our experienced dentists are trained to identify early problems. These can include teeth misalignment, missing or extra teeth and disturbances in enamel or dentine formation. Our dentist will then advise how each problem can be dealt with in an effective and timely way. Milk teeth must remain in the best condition possible to ensure that when the permanent teeth erupt, they do so in a desirable and orderly fashion.

We understand your child may be fearful and nervous during their first visit and we always do our utmost to make sure it’s always a happy and comfortable one. All of our dentists have a great chair-side manner when treating children of all ages, doing our best to make their experience a pleasant one. Our dental team will also show your child the correct way to brush teeth and when explaining good oral health, use a language they can understand.
