Dentistry for Children

As your child is growing up, having a regular visit to the dentist is important. Also, it is essential that you are able to monitor the development of your child’s mouth in case there are dental problems that will likely occur during this time. Normally, parents get their child to visit a dentist as soon as teeth are starting to appear and have their regular visit twice every year. With this, the dentist can closely record and follow your child’s dental development and progress.

At City Dental Center, we are committed to providing high-quality and patient-centered dental care to our patients. When it comes to children, we make every effort to make sure that they are comfortable the first time they visit our clinic and for their future treatments. We believe that good communication and relationships between the dentist and your child can create a positive impact and result as we go along the dental journey of your child.

Why Dentistry for Children?

Kids Interactive Dentistry

An Engaging Dental Experience

The Children’s Interactive & Preventative Dental Care Program was specially designed for our younger patients, ages 3 to 10, to foster a positive mindset toward dental care. Through fun and educational visits, we teach your child to build lifelong habits around food choices, brushing and flossing.

Looking Great and Feeling Healthy!

We encourage your children to look after their teeth and gums as an important part of their daily homecare routines. They will be encouraged through positive reinforcement to develop a sense of pride in their mouths and their ability to make it look and feel great and be healthy. Our goal is to make dental visits educational and fun.

Getting Off to the Right Start

Starting with your children’s first happy visit, they discover the magic of dental care. They will be shown all of the equipment to alleviate anxiety. Fun starts from supervised play with Mr. Thirsty, our water and air shooter, to a fun ride in the dental chair to count all the teeth.

When relaxed and comfortable, the educational process commences with an explanation about cavities, germs, nutrition and sugar bugs.

Parents are encouraged to be a part of the full self-care demonstration with their children.

Dentistry Older Kids

Older Child / Teenagers

As children age, additional dental problems can erupt. A regular dental care routine is essential. Teenagers can be tough on their teeth. We ensure that a good home-care routine is in place at this age by educating your teen on the importance of dental maintenance. Orthodontic problems also tend to arise at this stage. Luckily, these can be minimized with early intervention. We work with older children and teens to ensure preventative measures are kept in place. These include a healthy diet, educating your teenager about preventative measures, and putting the tools in place to keep your teenager’s mouth clean and healthy.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth generally appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, although it is possible to have fewer or more. As they develop, wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth, becoming impacted or growing sideways. This is why wisdom teeth have been identified as the source of problems for many people. A lack of room to allow the teeth to erupt results in a risk of periodontal disease and dental cavities. Because of this, it is common to get wisdom teeth extracted. It is recommended that wisdom teeth be removed before symptoms or damage occur, in order to prevent further dental complications. Thankfully, wisdom tooth extraction is one of our specialties. At City Dental Center, we work with patients to make sure they feel relaxed, secure and well taken care of.

How to Encourage Oral Health Care for Kids

Let Them Decide

Allowing your children to pick their own toothpaste and toothbrush can encourage them to actively take part in their dental care. This will also help them discover what they like to prefer when it comes to the design of the toothbrush or to experience different flavors of toothpaste.

Let Them Decide

We can’t deny the fact that children tend to enjoy copying what their parents or guardians do. So to take advantage of this, brush and floss together with your children. In that way, you are able to instruct and teach them the proper way to do it.

Introduce Healthy Eating Habits

Make it a habit in practicing your kids to eat healthy foods at their young age. This is to lessen their risk of having dental problems later on if they prefer to eat candies and sugary treats instead.
