Pediatric Dentist in Thornhill and North York
World Dental welcomes young children to provide them with excellent dental care. Even though many people have assumed that dental care can wait until the teeth are fully developed, the Canadian Dental Association recommends that infants must see a dentist before they are one or as soon as the first tooth comes out. Pediatric dentistry involves educating children about good oral hygiene. We recommend simple preventive procedures that can be done on your children like dental sealants and fluoride treatments. The dentist will monitor their oral development and, if needed, will recommend corrective procedures.
It is in the formative years of a child’s dental growth that special care needs to be taken of their teeth. Minerals essential for the healthy growth of teeth can be ingested from food or supplements (like fluoride). Milk teeth, or the first set of teeth to emerge in children, are especially sensitive and must be taken care of properly. Visiting the dentist at the right time can go a long way in protecting the child’s teeth. In many schools, pediatric dentist checkups are mandatorily done for children. The simplest way to take care of a child’s teeth is through inculcating healthy habits that last a lifetime. Teach them to brush twice a day and cover all corners by brushing at various angles.
