Pediatric Dentistry

At My Dental Clinic in Calgary, we believe prevention is the best dental treatment. For this reason, we offer various pediatric dentistry treatments and educate our patients on proper at home dental care.

  • Routine Dental Examinations – We recommend your child receive their first dental examination once the first tooth erupts. Routine examinations can help prevent decay and detect early dental issues before they become a problem. During your child’s oral examination we look for cavities, decay and other dental issues along with signs of malocclusion, snoring, and bad habits such as thumb sucking, nail biting, etc. Finding and treating these issues before they become a bigger problem is always a top priority.
  • Dental Cleanings – Routine dental cleanings at our Calgary dental office can help prevent plaque buildup and decay in younger patients. We can also reach areas your child may miss due to inexperience or misalignment of their teeth.
  • Fillings – If prevention does not work and your child has a cavity, we offer tooth-colored and metal fillings depending on preference. Filling the cavity can help prevent further decay and structural damage to the tooth.
  • Dental Sealants – Another preventative oral treatment, dental sealants help protect your child’s teeth from plaque buildup and decay. These sealants seal grooves and cracks in your child’s teeth that can inhibit plaque, cavities and tooth decay.
  • Fluoride Treatments – Fluoride treatments protect tooth enamel from acid and can help prevent and even sometimes reverse cavities and decay in children.
  • Dental Extractions – Sometimes children experience traumatic dental injuries that may require an extraction. Our dental office in Calgary will examine the damage and determine if other treatments may work. Once the extraction is complete, depending on the situation further treatment may be necessary.

Neglecting a child’s dental health can have extreme consequences down the line including decay, infection and even loss of teeth. We recommend routine examinations and cleanings twice a year. We can evaluate whether your child may need fillings or sealants during those visits.
