Pediatric Dentist Hamilton
Dentistry for Children
A visit to the dentist is daunting for anyone, but especially for children. We believe everyone should have a fun and relaxing experience while receiving oral health care. That is why we strive to provide a friendly dentistry environment for all of our patients. We take the time to understand the specific needs of your children while being understanding to their custom dental care routine. Our staff of dentists and hygienists are there to teach your kids about brushing, and healthy oral hygiene habits. After all, a lasting healthy smile begins with early care. If you live in the Hamilton area and are looking for a dentist for yourself and your children – your search is over! Welcome to Hamilton Mountain Dental Group, where we can’t wait to meet you and your family. Give us a phone call today to set up an appointment.
Friendly Dental Care For Your Child
We provide comprehensive dental services for the whole family, including dentistry for children. We have experience treating young children, and know how to help make their treatment a positive experience. Our waiting room is filled with toys and a wide variety of books to keep your children occupied and entertained. When it is time for their appointment, we will make sure to be with them every step of the way to ease their fears.
For ongoing regular care, it’s commended that children are seen by a dentist and hygienist for a dental exam and cleaning every six months. This should start as soon as possible after the first baby tooth eruption. This helps prevent early childhood caries and allows the dentist to examine your child’s mouth to ensure healthy development. If a cavity does happen, we are able to spot it sooner, too, for earlier treatment. Dentistry treatments are less intimidating than they were many years ago. As a bonus, we carry multiple polishing flavours to choose from so that the cleaning process can be a fun experience.
Emergencies and unexpected injuries happen, and if they do, rest assured that our team of dental professionals will always be there to assist you. Our dentists have the dental school training to conduct dental surgery to help your children in these cases.
Your Child’s Smile is Our First Priority
Our dental team loves children and works hard to make a child feel at home, while still prioritizing their dental health. We take time to educate parents on proper oral care as their child grows. We also guide your children towards better dental care habits for their teeth. While ensuring they have a healthy mouth free from tartar build-up and cavities, starting early education on dental health is equally important. This helps encourage children to continue regular brushing routines even after their visit. Our team offers dental tips regarding brushing, flossing and ways to support tooth enamel and reduce the likelihood of cavities. Patient education is an integral part of our treatment plans to promote lifelong, healthy habits for your child, to prevent cavities and other dental health issues. Because of this, we make education a key component of our care.
PEDIATRIC Dentistry for Kids
Parents have concerns about their children’s dental treatment and our dentists are there to answer all questions. We pride ourselves on putting your child’s health and safety first. A common inquiry we often get is regarding fluoride and whether it is safe to use on children’s teeth. Fluoride is actually a key ingredient in keeping their tooth enamel strong. Without fluoride, your child could be prone to tooth decay. This is why we recommend brushing their upper and lower teeth two times a day with a drop of fluoride. The amount needed increases as the kids get older.
Hamilton Mountain Dental Group will work with you to provide services catered to your child’s specific needs. We are qualified to provide general dentistry services for children. However, for special needs and circumstances (especially those related to important developmental milestones or any requiring general anesthesia), a referral to a pediatric dentist may be necessary. Pediatric dentists, or specialists who received additional training in paediatric dentistry, have the expertise to treat these cases.
Dental Sedation for Kids
We offer nitrous oxide or oral sedation, for sleep dentistry options to help anxious children feel comfortable. Our dentists use nitrous oxide, also referred to as laughing gas, as the primary form of sedation. This sedation dentistry method is safe for children and there are no lasting side effects. If your child requires services that they feel anxious about, sedation care may be the best course of action.
