Preparations are well underway and a new pediatric dentist is coming to Calgary! Our entire team here at Happy Trails Children’s Dentistry is so excited to start meeting your little and their big smiles very soon. Before we officially open our practice, we wanted to take the time to explain why pediatric dentistry is so important and why you should consider booking your child in for an appointment.
We Are Tiny Teeth Experts!
Did you know that pediatric dentists receive an extra 2 to 3 years of specialized training to treat children? We know what to look out for when it comes to the tooth and gum development of infants, children and teens. You may not be aware, but dental professionals recommend that your child completes their first dentist appointment by the time they are one year old. Even infants can develop problems such as tooth decay and cavities! At Happy Trails Children’s Dentistry – we can help you keep your little one healthy and smiling.
Early Detection of Oral Problems
Maintaining good oral health isn’t something you should wait to teach your child. Cavities, over-retained primary teeth, canker sores, gum disease and bad breath are just some of the problems your child could develop if they don’t brush and floss their teeth on a regular basis. The only thing worse than these problems is when they go undetected for a long period of time. By bringing your child to a Pediatric Dentist, we can spot early warning signs of oral issues and curb any detrimental problems.
Oral development happens at different rates for every child. Our team can customize your child’s dental care according to the rate their mouth is developing. We also have specialized equipment tiny enough to treat your infant or child comfortably.
Instill Good Habits
It’s important to be on the lookout for bad oral habits and address them right away. Many children develop habits such as teeth grinding and thumb sucking that can be hard for parents to try and break on their own. Pediatrics dentists face these challenges on a daily basis and can sit down with you and your child to explain how these habits can harm their teeth. We even have certain tips and tricks we can share to help assist!
