Dental Services for Children
At Antigonish Family Dentistry, you'll find a full range of dental services for children and a calm, fun environment that'll make your kids look forward to their next visit.
At Antigonish Family Dentistry it's never too early to start on the road to good dental health. Which is why we'll go the distance to ensure every child feels safe, comfortable and relaxed. Setting children at ease in a comfortable, fun environment will have them looking forward to their next visit with Dr. Wotton.
What kinds of paediatric dental services do we offer?
Our knowledgeable team is fully equipped to offer a complete range of dentistry services to meet the needs of a child's growing mouth, including:
- Custom made sports guards
- Space maintainers, for early orthodontic intervention
- Dental sealants, to protect your child's baby teeth from cavities
- Thumb sucking/habit-breaking appliances to help your child overcome behaviours that could be potentially dangerous to their overall oral health.
What can you expect on your child's first visit?
We'll do everything we can to make sure your child's first visit is fun, easy and stress-free – for both of you! We take extra special care when introducing children to the dentist's chair. In fact, we'll even give them a 'ride' on it and also let them check out how some of our 'cool equipment' works. If your child feels ready after this, we'll go ahead with their very first hygiene visit. If not, you can choose to bring them back when they're ready.
