Family Dental Care
Family Dental Care
At Woodbridge Dental Centre, looking out for the dental health of your family is both a privilege and an opportunity. For the child patients in our care, we know that developing positive attitudes and habits start with trust, patience and understanding. Digital x-rays allow parents, children and staff to see what is not clinically visible. Images appear instantly on-screen enhancing our diagnostic capabilities. Fluoride and sealants protect teeth, restorative materials are bonded to tooth structure and dental/facial growth patterns are monitored for optimal outcomes as your child grows to maturity. Our ultra-modern surroundings and a children’s activity centre, as well as the interactive care of our dental professionals, make for the perfect formula for an exceptional dental experience for the whole family.
A trip to the dentist can be an anxious experience for children. Watching a distracting TV show, changing the lighting, adding soothing music and other sensory changes may help. Children and even infants are vulnerable to oral health problems. What your child eats greatly impacts his/her oral health. Dentists believe that good oral health practices should begin in infancy and continue throughout adult life. Although milk teeth (deciduous or primary teeth) fall off and are eventually replaced with permanent teeth, healthy baby teeth form the foundation of your child’s overall dental health. An early start can go a long way in maintaining disease-free teeth and gums. We suggest that your child should see a dentist by the age of three years. Regular professional care can ensure that your child grows up cavity-free. At the Woodbridge dental centre, a good check-up means everyone is happy. Getting a token for our prize machines brings a smile to every child and a little incentive to work hard at home and keep their teeth clean.
When you make an appointment with one of our hygienists, your visit is much more than a teeth cleaning. We’ll evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums to ensure you stay on the right track toward good oral health and preventative hygiene. Our hygienists will work with you to provide you with the best tooth and gum care, tailoring your oral health program and frequency of visits to your individual needs. We understand that visiting the dentist can bring a sense of anxiety to some patients, and at Woodbridge Dental Centre, we try to make your visit as calming and as pleasant as possible by providing the option for mild sedation during your treatment.
