At Kids R Us in Southwest Calgary, our children's dentist offers preventive hygiene, cleanings, and fluoride treatment to help maintain your child's oral health.
In combination with twice daily at home oral care including brushing and flossing, we recommend that your child’s first visit begin at one year of age. At this age, we are able to address any early concerns and educate parents in proper maintenance of oral health and development.
In combination with regular at-home oral care including brushing and flossing, we recommend your child visit their dentist at the age of one or after the sign of their first tooth.
We recommend that your child maintain six month dental examination and hygiene appointments. During their hygiene appointment, we will clean their teeth, discuss your child's dietary history, evaluate their dental health, and their risk of cavities.
We will also provide you with at home care techniques including nutritional recommendations to help you care for your child's teeth and gums in between dental visits to help prevent cavities and create positive oral health habits young. When needed, we will introduce myofunctional exercises to your child to aid in proper tongue posture in order to optimize oral development.
As part of their routine checkup, we offer fluoride treatments to help prevent decay and maintain good oral health. Following their dental cleaning, our dentist will evaluate their smile for decay or cavities and recommend additional fluoride treatment if necessary.
Did you know that one in five children under the age of 5 will experience tooth decay? Since 2011, when Calgary became non-fluoridated, studies have shown that tooth decay has increased.
We are your children's pediatric dental specialists in Southwest Calgary.
