Like adults, children's dental care is important for a healthy smile. At Fort Richmond Dental Centre in Winnipeg, our dentists provide dental care designed for the unique needs of kids.
Caring for Winnipeg Kids
At Fort Richmond Dental Centre we're committed to helping young patients maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
Our fun, relaxed team and office environment will be sure to make your children feel comfortable during their appointments.
We will go at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process.
We also offer a children's play area for your little ones to enjoy while you wait for their appointment to begin.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should be seen by a dentist after the first tooth erupts or by the child's first birthday. By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are coming in and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become big concerns.
Dental Services for Children
Visiting the dentist for regular hygiene cleanings and exams when your child is young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by the permanent teeth.
During each appointment, your dentist or hygienist will review proper oral hygiene techniques with your child to ensure that their smile is getting the proper care at home.
If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards.
