At Norwood Dental Centre, we love children. We take pride in ensuring your child has a great first visit.
At Norwood Dental Centre, we strive to make your child’s first and every visit a positive experience. Our staff love working with children – from the receptionist to the hygienists, to the assistants and the dentist.
It is recommended that your child be seen within the first six months of the eruption of their first tooth to help prevent any problems from developing.
Our goal is to provide the foundation for a lifelong positive relationship for your child with their dentist.
At Norwood Dental Centre, we are proud to offer a range of dental services for children's unique needs.
Dental appointments are just as important for kids as they are for grownups. Children should visit the dentist at least every six months for a professional dental cleaning and checkup. This helps to prevent dental issues, and to catch and treat those that are already developing.
Baby teeth are essential for healthy oral development, and for the health of the whole body. Healthy baby teeth help kids chew and digest their food properly, and they also act as guides for the adult teeth as they grow. Visiting the dentist regularly when your child is young will help maintain their baby teeth, and ensure that their adult teeth grow into the proper positions.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps prevent tooth decay. We offer fluoride treatments for children to help keep their teeth strong and more resistant to decay as they grow.
Dental sealants are plastic coatings that can be applied to the chewing surface of the molars and premolars to help protect them from decay. These teeth often have deep fissures in them that are difficult for children to clean with regular brushing. Sealants help seal off these fissures so that bacteria and plaque cannot build up inside them.
Your dentist will monitor your child's growing smile for any sign of developing misalignments. If a problem is caught early enough, early orthodontic intervention can help prevent the problem from getting worse. In turn, this can prevent the need for more invasive orthodontic treatment when your child is older.
During each appointment, your dentist or hygienist will review proper oral hygiene routines with your child to make sure that each tooth is getting a proper cleaning. This can include brushing and flossing instructions, suggestions for supplementary hygiene aids, dietary advice, and more.
