Regular dental care is just as important for kids as it is for adults. At Rideau Dental Centre in Ottawa, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Rideau Dental Centre, 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 offer a complete range of dental services for Ottawa kids and their developing smiles, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We realize that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience, so we strive to keep the environment calm, friendly and inviting. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
Plaque grows in the baby's mouth even before the first tooth erupts and it is important to start good hygiene habits early. Baby teeth are important for eating, talking, smiling, and holding a place for adult teeth. Your baby's first visit to the dentist should occur at the age of one year, or when the first teeth appear.
Dental Services for Kids
At Rideau Dental Centre, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by the permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile is getting the proper care at home.
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.
