Positive Experiences At The Dentist
At Mount Pearl Dental, our commitment to our young patients is to help them feel at ease at their dental appointments so they can learn about maintaining good oral health today and for life.
We provide a wide range of dental services for Mount Pearl kids and their developing smiles and are dedicated to helping your child have the most positive dental experience possible.
For some, especially young children, going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience. With this in mind, we strive to create a calm, friendly, and inviting environment. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain what is happening during each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
By the time your child is 6 months old or at most 1 year old, they should be seen by a dentist. By this point, the baby's first (primary) teeth are starting to come in, which means it is a critical time to detect any problems before they become larger concerns.
Dental Services For Children
At Mount Pearl Dental, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
By ensuring your child starts seeing the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when they are young, you can help preserve their primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent (adult) teeth. At each appointment, we will go over good oral hygiene techniques to encourage your child to get involved in your caring for their smile at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child has a higher risk of tooth decay, develops a cavity, or has issues with misalignment, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments like dental fillings and mouth guards.
