Children don’t always brush and floss effectively, and sometimes they indulge in too many sweets, especially during summer and close to the holidays. We understand that you want to help maintain your child’s teeth into adulthood, and we are here to help you reach that goal.

At Toronto Lakeshore Dental, we partner with parents to help prevent cavities in children and have a lot of experience with children’s dentistry in Etobicoke. This partnership between parent and dental team calls for a good oral hygiene routine at home and regular dental exams and cleanings in our Toronto, ON dental clinic.

Good Practices at Home

Good oral hygiene practices at home include overseeing brushing and flossing at least twice per day, following any instructions or tips provided by our dental clinic team to help your child’s dentistry and encouraging your child to avoid sweets and sugary drinks.

Regular Dental Visits

Meanwhile, we will create a custom treatment plan that includes regular dental exams and teeth cleanings on a schedule. Exams help our Toronto, ON dentist discover problem areas early before they become decay, cavities, or toothaches. Also, teeth cleanings help clear away bacteria and tartar that can lead to cavities. Brushing and flossing alone cannot clear away everything.

We may recommend fluoride rinses, sealants, or other specific treatments to help prevent cavities in your child.

Additionally, we work hard to make children feel confident about their smiles by speaking to them directly about their oral health. Our team understands how to talk with children in an age-appropriate way that encourages good habits.

Let’s Work Together to Maintain Your Child’s Dental Health
