Although general dentists may treat patients of all ages, including children, you may want to investigate children's dentistry to ensure that your kid receives the care that he or she requires. This speciality treats children from infancy to puberty, including the use of sedation dentistry for young patients who require it. At Monarch Dentistry, we strive to offer great treatment for your children while also developing a positive connection with them in Ontario to ensure that they maintain frequent appointments as they grow.
The primary teeth, sometimes known as "baby" teeth, begin to emerge between the ages of six and twelve months. It is advised that children have their first dental appointment within six months of the emergence of their first tooth, or by the age of one. The baby teeth will continue to appear until about the age of three. There will be 20 primary teeth in total, which will begin to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth around the age of six.
Brushing should be supervised until you are sure that your child can do it on their own without accidentally swallowing the toothpaste. Fluoride is not recommended for children unless your dentist specifically advises using it. Appointments to the dentist for a cleaning and exam should be made every six months. If your child participates in sports activities, a sports guard should be used. For quality dental care for your children in Ontario, come visit us at Monarch Dentistry.
Our Patients are always a priority and we do our best to accommodate those with pain and need to be seen by a Dentist.
