Family dentists can treat patients of all ages, including children, but to be sure your child receives the treatment he or she needs, you might want to look into children's dentistry. In order to keep your kids coming back for appointments as they become older, we attempt to provide them with excellent care while also developing positive relationships with them at Monarch Dentistry in St. Catherine’s.
The primary teeth, or "baby" teeth, begin to erupt between the ages of six and twelve. Within six months of gaining their first tooth, or by the age of one, children should visit the dentist for the first time. Up to the age of three, the baby teeth will continue to erupt. Twenty primary teeth will be present in total, which will begin to erupt around the age of six and be replaced by permanent teeth.
Until you are certain that your child can brush their teeth without assistance from toothpaste, you should supervise them as they do so. Children should not use fluoride unless their doctor advises them to do so. You should schedule a dental cleaning and examination with your dentist every six months. Get a sports guard for your youngster if they participate in sports.

Our Patients are always a priority and we do our best to accommodate those with pain and need to be seen by a Dentist.
