Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Arenson Dental & Associates, our dentistry team is determined to help children feel as calm as possible during their dental appointments so they are able to keep good oral health today and into their adult years.
We can provide the kids of Richmond Hill and their growing smiles with a wide range of dental services and are committed to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We understand how it can be intimidating for children to go to the dentist, which is why we aim to keep the atmosphere inviting, friendly, and calm. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should visit a dentist for the first time after they turn six months of age or at least by their first birthday. At this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to emerge and it's a critical time to detect any issues before they become big problems.
Dental Services for Kids
At Arenson Dental & Associates, we can customize our services to meet the oral health needs of your child, and help keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Taking your child to the dentist for routine exams and hygiene cleanings when they are still young will help preserve the primary teeth until it's time for them to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. At every appointment, we will go over proper oral hygiene techniques to help make sure your child's smile is receiving the proper care it needs at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards.
