Pediatric Dentistry

Looking for pediatric dentistry from a general dentist in Saskatoon, SK? It seems like only yesterday that your little one was born, but before you know it, their first tooth comes in and it is time to take them to the dentist! It is recommended that children visit the dentist around the time that they turn one, or sooner if they have a tooth erupting.

The Importance of Pediatric Dentistry as a General Dentist

In need of Saskatoon dental care for your children? Visiting a dentist is essential for starting your child’s oral health on the right path and identifying any issues that could be much larger in the future. Understanding the impact of using a pacifier before it becomes a huge issue later can prevent having to get dental treatments done later. Early prevention can help immensely.

In some instances, dental procedures may need to be conducted on children. While baby teeth will eventually fall out on their own, removing them before they are ready can lead to other issues in the mouth. The adult teeth waiting to erupt often depend on the baby teeth to guide them into the right position. Without that assistance, your child may develop significantly crooked teeth that will require orthodontics later.

For instances of having to conduct many procedures at the same time or in the event that the child is particularly nervous, Wheatland Dental also offers pediatric inhalation sedation (laughing gas) dentistry.

Commonly Offered Treatments

Popular pediatric dentistry treatments recommended by our general dentist:

  • Fluoride Treatments – keep their teeth healthy, so they develop normally
  • Dental Sealants – protect molars and premolars from decay be using a dental sealant to stop bacteria from getting trapped in the valleys of the tooth
