We strongly recommend bringing your child to visit sherway dentistry before the age of one. We realize the importance of quality dental care in the development of children’s health and wellbeing. We want to work with your child from an early age to give him or her a jump-start on lifelong oral health. One of the most important steps, from the very first visit, is establishing a good attitude towards dental care and oral health, and a good relationship with his or her dental team.
Kids of all ages are welcome at sherway dentistry, and we take great care to ensure that your little one feels comfortable and safe. We are aware that children’s dental appointments can also be difficult for parents, and we take care in explaining our recommendations and answering your questions.
We provide many important services beyond basic dental health care. These include creating custom mouth guards for protection during contact sports, as well as nutritional and dietary advice for parents, and guidance regarding healthy practices in oral hygiene.
Every parent hopes to see his or her child enter adulthood with healthy, attractive permanent teeth and a great smile. This begins with good dental care and healthy baby (primary) teeth during childhood. Many parents underestimate the importance of baby teeth. Beyond their function in helping a child eat and speak properly, these teeth are crucial for jaw development, because they act as space holders for the permanent teeth. The premature loss of a baby tooth can lead to shifting of the remaining teeth. As a result, the permanent teeth may develop crooked or crowded.
At home oral care for kids
There are many ways that you can help your child avoid cavities and other dental problems. These include:
Don’t let your child go to sleep with a baby bottle of juice, milk, or any other sugar-containing liquid.
As soon as your baby has a single tooth, it’s time for brushing.
As soon as there are two side-by-side teeth, it’s time for the floss.
