Children's Dentistry | Paramount Dental | North Calgary | Family and General Dentist

Our team has exceptional communication skills with children of all ages. As parents ourselves, we have many years of experience in child hygiene and treatment, and we understand the unique needs and fears that children have. Paramount Dental strives to create a general awareness of good oral health, since early prevention and education help make long term care and maintenance possible.

When it comes to your child’s dental health, there are many things to consider. Below are some general guidelines for dental health that parents may consider as their child grows and develops.

  • Before Birth – Finish All Dental Work: Unbeknownst to most people, babies are not born with cavity causing bacteria in their mouth. The bacteria responsible for dental cavities and periodontal disease can be transferred from parents (primarily mothers) to their young offspring. The periodontal disease-causing bacteria can increase the risk of preterm labour and low birth weight. Therefore, it is recommended that parents have their dental treatment completed before the birth of their child to minimize the transference of Strep mutans, which can help minimize your child’s risk of developing early childhood cavities.
  • Infancy – Bedtime Bottles Should Only Contain Water: It is important to never put your baby to bed with a bottle filled with anything but water. Milk, fruit drinks, apple juice, or sugar water in a bottle overnight can wreak havoc on developing teeth, often resulting in rampant dental cavities.
  • When Teeth First Come In – Begin Brushing: We recommend you begin brushing as soon as the first teeth erupt into the mouth. This should be done twice daily (once in the morning and once before bedtime) with very little toothpaste. Starting this pattern of home care early on will help develop a healthy habit of good oral hygiene that can last a lifetime.
  • At 1 year – Begin Semi-Annual Exams: The first dental examination should follow soon after your child’s first birthday, or after their first tooth erupts. Regular checkups every six months should then be completed in order to maintain good oral health and treat issues while they are relatively small.
  • At 7-8 and 12 Years Old – Apply Dental Sealants: Dental sealants help prevent the development of dental cavities in newly erupted permanent back teeth (molars and premolars). A bonded material is applied to the teeth to seal off the deep grooves that these teeth possess. Sealants are quick and easy to apply, and very effective in preventing the onset of cavities.

Early Dental Visits Lead to a Lifetime of Dental Health and Wellness!
