Children's Dentistry in Winnipeg

Children’s dentistry focuses on pediatric oral healthcare. The team at Aqua Dental Wellness loves working with parents in protecting and keeping our youngest patients’ smiles healthy and beautiful. We monitor your children’s teeth growth and development and watch for potential dental issues.

Why is Children’s Dentistry Important?

The primary or baby teeth prepare for and impact future permanent teeth. Proper care of both sets is important for good oral health and influences your child’s appearance, chewing function, speech, and self-confidence.

Children need to see the dentist regularly to keep their teeth clean, prevent tooth decay, and monitor healthy teeth development. Dental issues can also be detected, managed, and treated early.

Your Child’s Dental Visit

Dental authorities recommend a child’s first dental visit be within six months of their first tooth erupting, an essential step to prevent early cavities.

Regular dental visits not only protect your child’s oral health but familiarizes them with the dental office environment. This helps them feel more comfortable with the dental team and ultimately makes treatments easier.

  • Comprehensive Exam. Your dentist will only do checks within your child’s comfort level. The first visits are about establishing trust and rapport. No treatment is forced. If your little one complies, your dentist will examine their teeth and other related structures. If necessary, their teeth will also be cleaned and polished.
  • Individualized Treatment Plan. If a dental problem is diagnosed, your dentist will recommend options to manage and treat it before it worsens. Your dentist may talk to you about the use of dental sealants, fillings, or orthodontic treatments for your child.
  • Home Care. Your dental team will also teach you and your child proper brushing and flossing techniques. Your whole family will benefit from these demonstrations. Take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about teething and oral health milestones, especially if you have infants or young children.
