At the Caroline Emond Dental Clinic, we offer dental care for children. These range from the preventive examination to the treatment of cavities, including the application of fluoride.
During regular follow-ups in pediatric dentistry, we check the condition of the teeth as well as the growth of your child's mouth. Teeth and jaw problems are caught early and can be corrected in time.
We recommend the first visit to the dentist within six months of the eruption of the first teeth. If the teeth are slower to appear, we advise to plan a visit around the age of one year. Thus, your child gets used to our environment early on and establishes a relationship of trust with the dentist. From the first visit, our caring team makes sure your child feels comfortable.
Pediatric follow-ups requires specific skills to help your child enjoy his experience at the clinic. Not only do we take care of the oral health of the young patient, but we also educate him in a playful way.
Children under 10 years of age receive the following services without charge:
After cleaning the teeth, the application of fluoride helps to strengthen the enamel of the teeth. This process has significant benefits for the dental health of children, in particular by helping to prevent cavities.
The application of sealants is a quick and easy treatment that does not require anesthesia. Gaps and cracks filling are used to seal the gaps and furrows of the molars. These easily trap food residue and bacteria, increasing the risk of cavities.
Particularly used during pediatric follow-ups, this intervention represents a preventive treatment that helps protect your child's teeth against cavities. Combined with good dental hygiene, this greatly limits the appearance of decay.
Primary teeth (or baby teeth) are not only used for eating, they also play an important role in the eruption of adult teeth. If a primary tooth is removed prematurely, it can cause the adjacent teeth to shift. It can also prevent the permanent tooth from growing and pushing properly.
Damaged or decayed teeth can also affect your child's health and self-esteem. This is why a decayed or broken tooth must be repaired, even if it will eventually fall out later.
We are fortunate to have in our team a general dentist, trained and qualified to provide dental care under general anesthesia. Dr. Eve Longchamps works in close collaboration with anesthetists who are recognized during these specific treatments.
General anesthesia in dentistry is of great help. It is a safe and controlled intervention to treat, among other things:
Most often, it is with young children that Dr. Eve performs this type of practice. A first consultation appointment will be necessary for an assessment adapted to the needs of your child.
