Looking for a pediatric dentist in Saskatoon, SK? It seems like yesterday that your little one was born, but before you know it, they are breaking their first tooth and it is time to take them to the dentist! It is recommended that children visit the dentist by the time they are 1-year-old, but it is also smart to take them in when their first tooth is erupting from the gums.
In need of Saskatoon pediatricians? Pediatric dentistry is essential in starting your child’s oral health on the right path and to identify 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.
