Toronto Lakeshore Dental
A Great Dentist

What happens at your child's first dentist appointment?

There is nothing more precious than your little one's beautiful smile, and you want to be sure to protect it. The best way to do that is with dental care, which should start early on to help acclimate your son or daughter to visiting their children's dentist in Etobicoke.

Our dentists like to begin seeing children around their first birthday and then every six months afterward. These early visits are spent mostly helping them feel comfortable, welcome, and safe at the dentist and in the "big chair."

Create a Strong Oral Health Foundation

We will also count and check their teeth and monitor their oral development to ensure that parents know about any concerns as early as possible. Teeth cleanings are incorporated as they get older and feel more comfortable at the dentist, typically around ages two or three. 

Preventative Treatments for Young Patients

As your son or daughter grows, we may also recommend additional protection for their teeth, such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Fluoride helps strengthen and protect tooth enamel, and dental sealants cover grooves and pits in teeth that trap cavity-causing bacteria.
