Teaching children about oral health
Our job is about much more than fixing and cleaning teeth — as dental professionals, it is our responsibility to educate and empower children to maintain fantastic oral health. From tooth brushing demos using stuffed animals to nutritional education, brushing/flossing charts, prize draws and more, we make the entire process fun and educational.
Previstat® is making tooth decay history
Researchers have identified that tooth decay is actually a disease called caries caused by a specific bacterium identified as S. mutans. If your child is infected with S. mutans, they will develop tooth decay regardless of brushing habits. A new approach called Previstat® helps us identify high-risk groups and recommend tailored treatments to prevent tooth decay.
Our Previstat® Advanced Preventive Care Program includes:
- Bacterial testing
- Caries risk assessment
- Preventive innovations
- Anti-bacterial therapy
- Nutritional information about diet and dental diseases
- Preventive treatment for oral habits
- Space maintainers
- Custom-made athletic mouth guards for active children
It’s about more than beautiful smiles
Children who grow up cavity-free are more resistant to diabetes and heart disease later in life. When you begin to realize that proper oral health in children has a much greater long-term impact than what meets the eye, it’s clear that getting kids educated early in proper brushing and flossing habits is essential.
When should my child start visiting the dentist?
The Canadian Dental Association encourages the assessment of infants, by a dentist, within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. The goal is to have your child visit the dentist before there is a problem with his or her teeth.
