When it comes to your child’s oral health, the best plan is the preventive one. The Dental Retreat want to make sure your child is at minimum risk of developing oral complications in the future, this can be done through preventive dental care. Visiting the dentist is rarely a favourite activity for any child. However, it is important for kids to develop good oral habits early on in their childhood which in turn will develop a healthy dentition and excellent dental habits for life.
Dental treatment for children is not only about having regular dental examination, clean and preventative care. It is also about helping to learn the benefits of proactively taking care of their oral health by our kid’s friendly dentist at Macleod. Dental treatment for children is usually available to kid’s even as young as one year old or from the time they start to develop teeth.
We also provide Myobrace treatment that helps to correct breathing and functional habits in a growing child.
Preventive dentistry for children will include a combination of education and treatment to reduce the risks of dental issues. Early decay or dental caries if untreated could cause loss of the tooth, leading to closure of its space and preventing the permanent tooth from erupting into the correct position.
Preventive dental care at The Dental Retreat will also include checking children’s brushing and diet habits, this is important to focus on early in their childhood.
Interceptive orthodontic treatment or habit correction may be indicated in some kids who could have more predictable results if treatment is provided early.
If you would like your child to begin their preventive dentistry journey, book an appointment with our child friendly dentists at The Dental Retreat Macleod.
