At Meadow Ridge Dental Centre, we believe every child's smile is precious. Our caring dental team is pleased to welcome children of all ages to our Maple Ridge, BC dental clinic and treat them with caring, compassionate dentistry.
From toddlers to teens, we provide age-appropriate dental care that supports healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. We start with preventive dental exams and teeth cleanings and treat cavities and gum disease promptly. Then, as your child grows, we'll add other treatments needed to ensure their smiles stay healthy and happy.
Gentle Children's Dentistry in Maple Ridge, BC
Dr. Jason Liu, Dr. Robert Noh, Dr. Bryan McGuinness are kind and caring dentists who love working with children and helping them develop a positive attitude about their oral health.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends that a dentist see children by age one or when their first baby tooth appears, then every six months after that.
Our dentists perform a thorough visual examination where they check your child's teeth and gums to ensure that they are healthy. If they find a cavity or gum disease, they will discuss the problem with you and explain how treatment will benefit them.
When it is time for your little one's six-month teeth cleanings, they couldn't be in better hands! Our gentle, friendly hygienists love treating children of all ages and helping them develop positive oral health habits from an early age.
They provide thorough teeth cleanings for a fresh, clean smile and will teach you and your child about proper brushing and flossing skills. Helping your child maintain healthy teeth and gums is a team effort, and we are their biggest cheerleaders!
Fluoride and Dental Sealants
Two other important preventive treatments we offer are fluoride applications and dental sealants. Fluoride treatments help build strong, healthy teeth and protect against cavities. Dental sealants are applied to tooth surfaces to act as a barrier against cavity-causing bacteria and food particles.
If your child develops a cavity, it's essential to treat it right away, even if it's in a baby tooth. Our tooth-coloured fillings restore a decayed tooth to total health, and because we match the filling to their tooth shade, the repair will blend into your child's smile seamlessly.
Healthy Oral Habits Start at Home
A lifetime of healthy smiles begins at home when you support and encourage your child to develop positive oral habits. Time spent teaching your child the importance of healthy teeth and gums helps them develop a confident attitude about dental care that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Even though baby teeth eventually come out, it's crucial to protect them against cavities until they do. Our dental team will make it easy and fun for your child to learn how to brush and floss, but you will need to help them until they have the skills to manage it on their own. And remember—we are only a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns!
