We want to give Sexsmith children the opportunity to start off on the right foot when it comes to their dental care. Our main goal is to make the children that visit our dentist office feel comfortable with their treatments and have an exciting experience.
When Should Children Visit the Dentist?
Children should visit the dentist for a cleaning at least twice a year, just like you!
It is recommended you bring your child to the office to see our team by their first birthday. Get your child off to a good start with oral health, and contact us to book an appointment today. Request Appointment
In addition to checkups and education, our dentists offer dental sealants and mouth guards to the children of Sexsmith.
A dental sealant is a liquid that is painted onto the teeth to protect them from plaque and bacteria. Sealants are a great way to protect against tooth decay and cavities on your back teeth (molars).
Molars are the teeth that are most vulnerable to cavities and decay because they are used in the chewing process, and are the most difficult to reach and clean. Molars first come in at around ages 5 to 7, with a second set surfacing between the ages of 11 to14.
Sealant should be placed when the molars first come in to ensure they are protected early.
Mouth guards are extremely important when playing sports. Without a mouth guard, the jaw and mouth can easily sustain injury.
Many sports stores provide standard mouth guards, but these are not customized to your child's teeth.
For the highest level of comfort and protection, a custom mouth guard is a great option.
The thinness of the custom mouth guard allows for easy breathing and easy communication on the field, court or rink.
We're always happy to welcome new patients!
