Providing gentle dental care for kids

Amazing Smiles Dentists are family friendly. We see many children embrace a preventive approach to their oral care.

We’re proud to have child dentists who help kids maintain good dental hygiene.

When was the last time you took your child in for a dental checkup?

Through regular examinations, early diagnosis and consistent care, we encourage each child to adopt good dental practices from a young age to establish a lifetime of good oral habits.

Regular dental checkups for your child help ensure healthy teeth and gums by attending to any potential problems. Your child may have unknown cavities, plaque and tartar build-up, or gum issues. Our professional and experienced child dentist can help recommend the appropriate treatment measures to help ensure good oral health.

Your local Child Dentist helps educate and maintain good oral health with your kids.

Helping your child maintain excellent oral health is critical for their general health and self-esteem development. We perform general children’s dentistry and provide education for children and parents alike on how to best manage their child’s oral health.

When will they lose their baby teeth?

Children tend to lose their baby teeth in very close order to which they arrived. As baby’s (deciduous/primary) teeth are lost, the adult teeth emerge to take their place.

Below is a guideline for when you may expect to see your child lose their baby teeth. As a result, this is a guideline only, and all children are different.

If you have any concerns regarding your children’s teeth eruption, discuss this issue with your dentist.

Finding Dental Issues Early Can Help in the Future

Early and regularly dental visits for children can help detect and diagnose issues that can become problematic or costly in the future.

If your child may be at risk of decay/cavities or other hygiene problems, a dentist may start applying preventative oral health measures and treatments to help fix the issue early before it worsens.

As children age and their oral bone structure develop, early orthodontics help shape their mouth and bite correctly. These are known as orthodontic appliances or otherwise known as palatal expanders.

A palate expander is an orthodontic appliance designed and used to widen the upper jaw. Experienced dentists in orthodontics suggest palate expanders for a variety of different reasons, including;

  • correcting crossbite
  • relieving overcrowding
  • widening smile arc
  • widening of the nasal passage to improve nasal airflow

Orthodontic oral appliances are recommended for children because this treatment method becomes less effective in adults when bone growth is complete. After an extensive examination, your dentist will advise if such treatment is necessary for your child.
