We offer dental care for all members of the family including the youngest members, children.

Your Child’s First Visit

When to Book Your Child’s First Dental Exam

The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) recommends that children should have their first dental exam within 6 months of their first teeth coming in, which for most children is at approximately 12 months of age. Early dental care can identify concerns, such as thumb-sucking or tongue/lip tie that may require attention. Our team is proud to be able to support and assist our new parents in making their child’s oral health a priority and preventing issues in the future.

Dr. Bains recommends that new parents book a “newborn visit” with us when their child is 6 months old to spend some time discussing baby teeth and infant oral health. Many of our patients have heard Dr. Bains say “children do not come with manuals. This personalized education session regarding appropriate care of gums, teeth and the effects of foods is essential for maintaining your baby’s dental health.

From the age of 18 months onward, children should have checkups every 6 months due to the higher risk of tooth decay. We encourage oral cleanings in children who have some or all of their baby teeth. Not only will this prevent painful cavities from forming, but it will also support healthy gums and the efforts of parents who may be struggling to keep these little teeth clean. Regular dental examinations will help identify if a child requires future orthodontic treatment due to:

  • Tooth crowding
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Tongue thrust
  • Narrow dental arches
  • Protruding front teeth
  • Cross bites

Our aim is to help ensure your child develops a sense of comfort during dental examinations and cleanings. Lewis Estates Dental Centre, focuses on prevention in order to minimize the need for more complex dental care and to help your child develop good oral health.
