At what age should I bring my child to the dentist?
If your child does not have any visible dental problem, Dr. Lim suggests that you can bring your child for his or her first visit at 5 years of age.
How often should children visit the dentist?
At our Toronto dental office, parents are encouraged to bring in their children every 6 months. Because they are growing and changing so rapidly, we pay special attention to erupting permanent teeth, growth and development of facial bones and smile aesthetics and function.
Dental Sealants – the best preventive dental procedure for children
One of the most common preventive dental procedures for children are dental sealants. They are plastic coatings that are put on the chewing surface of the child’s molars to fill in any pits and grooves in the tooth. Dental problems and tooth decay arise when food residues and bacteria get stuck in those pits and grooves with difficulty of reaching them with regular teeth brushing. Sealing those fissures at an early age protects the teeth from accumulating any residues, eliminating or at least minimizing the risk of developing tooth decay in the future. Between dental sealants and maintaining good hygiene habits, your child’s teeth should remain healthy and decay-free for a long time.
