Our Approach to Treating Children
Our dentists are careful when providing care to children, helping them develop the comfort and understanding necessary to enjoy their visit. Our office has a designated children’s area where kids can play and relax before entering the operatory. We emphasize the education of our patients during their appointments, and we describe every step we take to kids in a way they can understand. We also emphasize preventive dental care with children, teaching them how to take care of their oral health. In addition, we give children the agency to refuse treatment; we want your child to trust the dentist, and that includes respecting the wishes of patients of any age.
Our Okotoks dental practice provides additional support to help a child’s smile stay healthy outside our practice. We provide dietary guidance to encourage kids to eat the foods that support oral health. If your child is already seeing a pediatric dentistry specialist, our doctors will help coordinate care with them to provide the most effective dental home for your child.
Procedures for Children
In addition to our careful approach, Village Lane Dental Centre also provides select dental procedures unique for children.
One of the more prominent health concerns children will face is the misalignment of their teeth and bite. Our practice can provide interceptive treatments to help children avoid more severe orthodontic concerns: habit breaking devices, extraction of primary teeth, and metal braces with selectable color ligatures for a customized look. We also provide frenectomies for young children experiencing tongue tie to improve their ability to speak. If a child’s primary tooth has experienced severe decay, we can provide pulpotomies and crowns to remove the decay.
While those treatments help restore a child’s oral health, we also provide topical fluoride applications, sealants, and sports guards as part of our emphasis on preventive dental care for children.
