Children's Preventive Dentistry Services
There is nothing more beautiful than a child’s smile. But in order for children to have beautiful smiles, they need their parents' help. Good oral health habits are the beginning.
At AXIS Dental Group, we specialize in Children’s/Pediatric Dentistry because we recognize the importance of giving your children the right start in life by helping them develop good, healthy habits.
Through our Preventive Dentistry practice, we can help your children maintain good oral health from infancy straight through to their adult life. This will result in healthy and confident smiles for years to come.
We offer children the following Preventive Dentistry services at AXIS Dental Group:
- Dental cleanings (prophylaxis), including flossing, fluorides and sealants
- Oral health education and information
- Nutrition counseling
- Mouthguards for sports and bruxism (grinding)
Making Dental Visits a Positive Experience For Kids
We understand that going to the dentist for the first time can be a scary proposition for some children. It's because of this and our commitment to children's dentistry that we begin the experience with a "fun visit" where we introduce your child to the AXIS Dental Group professionals in a casual manner.
We provide a calm and relaxing playroom where children can enjoy reading, watching TV or playing video games while they become comfortable with their surroundings. When it’s time for their dental visit, they can watch their favourite channel on our ceiling televisions while they lie back in the chair. How great is that?
Children love technology. We have special intra-oral and extra-oral cameras that take pictures of the inside and outside of their mouths. These cameras will provide a visual of their face and teeth and confirm any problems or cavities the dentist may have detected.
After their cleaning, kids are rewarded with a loot bag containing a toothbrush, floss, picture, report card, and sticker. A helium balloon is often the highlight of the day as "Windy the Clown” blows up their favourite colour!
We encourage you to check out our FAQ section where you’ll discover important information and tips on caring for your children’s teeth and maintaining their oral health.
