Finding the right children’s dentist is important. At Cottonwood Dental in Lumsden, we feel childern’s oral care is central to their health and emotional well being as they grow older. Pediatric dentistry focuses on children from birth through adolescence. During these formative years, it’s critical for your child to be comfortable with their pediatric dentist and hygiene team.
Cottonwood Dental aims to promote the dental health of your children and educate the parents on dental resources available for their children. It is recommended that a child’s first dental appointment should be within six months after the presence of their first tooth or their first birthday, whichever comes first. We want to detect early stages of tooth decay, and these early oral examinations are significant. The Cottonwood Dental team will help you maintain your children’s oral health, modify any bad habits before they become pesky habits and provide simple treatment as needed. Our team will work with both the parent and the child to teach them the proper techniques while brushing, flossing and using fluoride.
Ensuring Child Comfort First
Our staff gives compassionate attention to children, enhancing their comfort each step of the way. We understand how important it is for children to feel comfortable while at the dentist, not only to receive dental treatments but also to protect them from feeling dental anxiety. It’s our goal to preventively care for your child’s developing smile. With a kid’s corner in our lobby, a treasure box filled with goodies and doctors that practice kindness, your child has an opportunity to obtain good oral health in a family-friendly environment. We recommend that children begin to see a dentist as soon as they develop teeth.
Comprehensive Dental Services for Children
Our children’s dental services are tailored to protect young smiles from tooth decay and maintain good oral health. We get to know your child during examinations and inspect their smile thoroughly. In particular, we examine how far their smile has progressed, and look for signs of decay and bite problems. With a treatment plan specifically designed to address the unique needs of your child, our Lumsden dentists establish a long-term vision for your child’s smile. From age 5 to 11, we will provide orthodontic examinations, and can refer patients to trusted orthodontists. Additionally, we will watch wisdom tooth development and guide parents through the removal process if needed.
Some of our other children’s dental services include:
- Tooth-Coloured Fillings, Pulpotomies & Stainless Steel Crowns
- Dental Cleanings & Check-ups
- Fluoride & Sealants
- Your child will get a tour of the office and a ‘ride’ in the dental chair
- They will meet and become familiar with the dentist and hygienist
Investing in a Brighter Dental Future
Part of long-term care includes educating children and parents on good oral health practices at home. Additionally, our dentists will suggest ways to improve hygiene habits, focusing on brushing and flossing. We keep parents informed about their child’s oral health, ensuring they’re aware of each step in their child’s developing dentition and treatment needs.
