Living well begins early in life, and we are proud of the excellent care we provide to patients of all ages. Our team is committed to making dental experiences positive, especially for children. During early childhood dental visits, children learn and form the habits they will carry with them for life. Dr. Robertson and Dr. Redd, along with the various members of our dental team all share the same common goal of helping patients enjoy their healthiest mouths and bodies.
The more prepared you and your child are for his or her dental visits, the better you both can feel. Children do not inherently harbor fear of dental care, but they do tend to feel anxious about the unknown. Dr. Robertson and Dr. Redd, along with our dental assistants and even our front office staff, make it a point to talk with children in pleasant tones, using language they understand. We want each member of your family to feel at ease from the moment you arrive in our office.
Dental care for children is tailored to their needs, just like for adults. Most early dental visits in our Calgary dental practice will include examinations and cleanings. Basically, we take a proactive approach to keep your child's teeth and gums healthy. We assess growth patterns, check for cavities, demonstrate proper brushing techniques, and provide restorative care when necessary.
Our dental practice is one that maintains the commitment to avoid the use of mercury. When patients of any age require dental fillings, we use composite or ceramic material rather than dental amalgam. There are several benefits of this material over conventional amalgam. Composite dental fillings are not only more attractive, but they look like natural tooth material, They are also free of mercury and therefore safer for use in many people including pregnant women and children. Repairing teeth with tooth colored material also allows your dentist to preserve more natural tooth structure due to the bonding process.
Dental care for children is designed to prevent dental problems as much as possible. We use safe, effective materials, techniques, and treatments to keep your family smiling.
