Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Riverside Family Dentistry, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments, so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
We are able to offer your child a complete range of dental services for children and their developing smiles. Our Ottawa dentists believe in providing your child with the easiest and most positive dental experiences we can.
We know that for children, going to the dentist may be an intimidating experience. So, we work to help our environment remain inviting and calm. We will aim to work at your child's comfortable pace, take breaks if they are becoming overwhelmed and explain each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should generally be seen by a dentist at about six months of age or, at the latest, by your child's first birthday. Around this time, your baby's first teeth will begin to erupt. This is a critical time to find any issues before the become larger concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Riverside Family Dentistry, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting your child's dentist regularly for exams and cleanings while they are still young will help to preserve their primary teeth until they naturally make way for adult teeth. At each appointment with your child, we will walk through proper oral hygiene in order to help your child receive the care they need.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards.
