FAQs Answered by Our Toronto Pediatric Dentist

A lifetime perfect smile begins at childhood and with a commitment to oral hygiene at this duration of time. Our pediatric dentist in Toronto strives to keep parents informed about their children’s oral health. We ensure that you will receive top-quality pediatric dentistry services in Toronto by coming to Elmwood Park Dental. To gain a better understanding of your little hero’s oral health, you can have a glance at the FAQs below:

Pediatric dentists are trained specifically to meet the dental needs of children. Your child feels welcomed and encouraged to learn essential oral hygiene habits at a pediatric dentist’s office. They require dental treatments to be done more gently. We have frequently experienced that kids can easily overcome their fear of a dental clinic by visiting our caring pediatric dentist in downtown Toronto.

We all know that children are perceptive and sensitive. As a result, they would better not realize any feeling of fear in you about a dental visit. Try to avoid using negative descriptions for dentists and dental clinics in front of them. Besides, you can bring your child to our dental office so that he/she can get familiar with our Toronto pediatric dentist prior to your initial appointment. This allows them to recognize the dental office as a welcoming and stress-free place. Above all, playing pretend dentist with your children at home is best to prepare them for a pediatric dental visit.

Our pediatric dentist in Toronto will complete a thorough exam of your child’s oral health state at the first visit. If there isn’t any underlying dental problem, we will educate your child on maintaining excellent oral health by following some simple instructions. Regular pediatric dental visits will keep the oral health issues at bay for many years to come. Elmwood Park Dental emergency pediatric dentist in Toronto is also ready to deliver urgent dental care to your children if required.

Our Toronto pediatric dentist does not recommend fluoridated toothpaste for children before the age of 3. A soft-bristle toothbrush and pure water are the best to clean their baby teeth earlier than that. After age three, your child can use a pea-sized amount of special toothpaste when brushing.

Foods that contain carbohydrates (starches and sugar) are the main reason for tooth decay among children. Bacteria that live in the mouth feed on the food particles stuck between your children’s teeth, causing tooth decay at an early age. That’s why we should teach our children always to take their oral health care seriously. You can always benefit from our services of pediatric dentistry in Toronto and prevent tooth decay and any other dental issue for your beloved children.

Children’s milk teeth grow at six months of age. At six to seven years old, milk teeth are replaced with permanent teeth. Poor oral hygiene of children can damage their teeth and remain throughout their lifetime. Nowadays, children’s tooth decay is five times higher than asthma.

Visiting a children’s dental clinic should be performed in the first year of your child’s birth. However, regular visiting should start between six to twelve months of age. Children with healthy teeth can eat and grow up better and speak more confidently due to their beautiful smiles. We strive to help your children with protecting their teeth and achieving the smile they deserve.
