Parents want their children to maintain healthy teeth. Here at West Wind Dental, we work with parents like you in designing a dental care program for your kids and ensuring good oral health for the whole family.
The Importance of Children’s Dentistry
It’s crucial for children to receive dental care early on. The Canadian Dental Association recommends infants see a dentist within 6 months of their first tooth erupting to have their teeth assessed and prevent any issues from arising.
Did you know children miss an estimated 2.26 million school days a year in Canada due to dental-related issues? In addition, one-third of day surgeries performed on children aged 1 to 5 is for tooth decay.
We’re able to detect and treat potential issues when your child visits the dentist regularly. Routine cleanings prevent painful cavities from forming. We can also address improper bite to ensure your little ones absorb the most nutrients from the food they eat.
We can identify habits, such as thumb-sucking, that are impacting tooth development and offer solutions. Our team communicates with our young patients in a friendly and gentle manner. We strive to teach them the importance of good oral hygiene in a fun and interactive way.
