Children’s Dentistry is one of the main focuses in our Toronto dental office (Brookdale Dentistry). It is crucial to make sure that your baby’s teeth are healthy and in good condition as soon as they erupt because they’re the foundation for good oral health for the rest of their life. We encourage you to bring your children for their first dental visit between the age of 1 and 2, or as soon as their teeth start growing. We will make sure your child feels welcomed, happy, comfortable and excited to come back for the next visit. Dr. Ali Shakib and Dr. Parand Parsaie, we know the amount of positive impact a good dental experience can have on their lives in the future.
Other than monitoring your child’s teeth, bite and overall oral health, we sometimes take preventive measures if necessary to protect their mouth from potential future dental problems. Dental Sealants are a very common preventive procedure, which is most effective when done for children as soon as their molars fully erupt. Sealants are a thin plastic coating put on the chewing surface of the molars to fill in any pits and grooves. By evening the surfaces of the molars, we leave no chance for bacteria and food residues to build up in any fissures, minimizing risks of dental decay or dental caries in the future.
