From birth to the adolescent years, children's smiles go through many fast and dramatic changes. Pediatric dentists in Calgary SW proactively manage these changes, and help ensure children's long term dental and oral health.
For example, bacteria in the mouth can cause infection elsewhere in the body for those with compromised immune systems, while major chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, share common risk factors with oral disease.
An early, proactive approach to establishing children’s long-term dental and oral health will significantly contribute to their overall well-being — for the rest of their lives.
Helping them develop great dental habits at home and making them comfortable with regular, clinical dental care are key.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends that children make their first visit to the dentist within 6 months of their first tooth or by their first birthday.
Pediatric Dentistry differs from General Dentistry in that it is solely focussed on the special needs of developing mouths – the teeth, gums & overall oral health of babies through teenagers and young adulthood.
