Give Your Children the Care They Need with a Trusted Kids Dentist
Starting from a young age, regular visits to a trusted dentist sets your children on a path to good tooth development and oral health. Taking your children to the dentist is not always easy, since many struggle with dental anxiety. But with an experienced children’s dentist at Your Neighbourhood Dentist, you and your kids are in good hands.
Common Dental Needs for Children
As teeth erupt from the gums, there are many reasons why you may need to visit a kid’s dentist. Many young children suffer from cavities or tooth decay, gum or tooth infections, and dental accidents like chipped teeth. Dr. Carrie in Leaside & Davisville, Toronto, offers complete and reliable dental care catered to kids, so they can resolve pressing and painful dental problems properly and build a healthier future.
- Cavities & Tooth Decay: Poor brushing and flossing habits paired with a love of sweet treats make children susceptible to cavities.
- Tooth or Gum Infections: As baby teeth fall out and new teeth replace them, trouble with how teeth erupt can cause infections around the gums and teeth.
- Dental Accidents: In the spirit of fun, accidental injuries can cause chipped teeth, bleeding gums, even a knocked out tooth. When trouble incurs, rush to a local kids dentist you trust.
Identify tooth decay, dental emergencies, and poor dental habits before it goes too far with Dr.Carrie and Your Neighbourhood Dentist in Leaside and Davisville.
