Dental care for toddlers

From as early as 4 months, a child may start developing their first primary teeth. The 20 primary teeth usually appear by the time the child is around age 2-3, with the first adult teeth appearing around age 6-7. However, children develop teeth at varying paces and orders. It is important to maintain healthy baby teeth, as they are crucial in proper development of adult teeth and space maintenance, in addition to speech, function, and aesthetic of a child’s smile.

When the first baby teeth begin to appear, a soft washcloth or soft brush may be used to clean the teeth, preferably twice a day and after feeding. A small amount (size of a green pea) of non fluoridated toothpaste may be used, and once the child is old enough to spit, they may graduate to a fluoridated toothpaste. Avoid tooth pastes and polishes that contain harsh abrasives. Most young children are not able to brush on their own so having an adult help out or supervise is always recommended.

We offer orthodontic treatment for children

The first signs of malocclusions or bad bites could begin to show even at the stage of baby dentition. Certain issues with dental growth, if caught early, can be easily fixed and reduce the need for major dental procedures being done at a later age. Our dentists will look out for signs of bad bites,

underdeveloped dental arches, early loss of primary teeth, or habits such as thumb sucking which can lead to alignment issues. Interceptive treatment when growth and development is on our side is key to prevention of anticipated issues during dental development.

When to take your child for the first dental visit?

An excellent time for a child’s first dental visit would be when their first teeth begin to appear. It is very important to establish an appropriate dental health care routine for your child from as early as age one. A first visit usually entails meeting the dentist and staff, accustoming the child to a dental environment and check ups, and oral hygiene / dietary instructions.

There are also ways to make the first dental visit more enjoyable and comfortable for your child. Do not use words that will cause your child to develop unnecessary fear before visiting the dental clinic such as a needle or hurt. Children often fear dental clinics because of the message that was conveyed to them earlier on . Most importantly, visit a kid-friendly dental clinic that will do all it takes to make your child feel relaxed and have a pleasant experience.

At Smiles on Queen, we provide a comfortable environment for children’s dentistry. Consider all your child’s dental health care needs met by our gentle and friendly dentists.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental office...so I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.
