  • Providing eruption guidance for the primary and permanent teeth to prevent the need for future orthodontic treatment
  • Orthodontic treatment for poorly positioned teeth
  • Treating teeth that have been injured in, for example, falls or accidents
  • Providing oral health care for children with medical, physical, mental or developmental disabilities
  • Working with pediatricians, other doctors and dental specialist to provide the best care for children through a team approach.

Preventative Children's Dentistry

Our Oakville childrens' dentists advise that the first child visit should occur shortly after the first tooth erupts and no later than your child's first birthday. We emphasize prevention for our young patients. Regular checkups and excellent daily oral hygiene are the best defense against serious problems with teeth and gums.

Good oral hygiene habits are important throughout life. Children need to be taught how to care for their teeth from a young age so they can avoid problems later in life. Although they lead busy lives, teens and adults still need regular checkups to ensure they maintain excellent oral health. Older adults can experience changes in the condition of their teeth and gums, making oral hygiene even more important.

Dental Sealant

Dental sealants are thin coatings that are painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars) to prevent cavities for many years. Sealants cover the chewing surfaces with a protective shield that blocks out germs and food. Once applied, sealants can protect against 80% of cavities for 2 years and continue to protect against 50% of cavities for up to 4 years.

Sealants are a quicy, easy, and painless way to prevent cavities. Sealants are also less expensive and easier to apply than fillings. Our Oakville children's dentist can apply sealants as soon as your child's permanent molars come into the mouth (around age 6 for first molars and age 12 for second molars).

We will monitor your child's oral health at every check-up and recommend with a good home care regimen.

Next time you visit our Oakville dental office, ask Dr. Amit Chaudhry and his family dentist team about children's dentistry to take care of your little one's oral health.
