Children's Dental Services
Regular dental care is just as important for kids as it is for adults. At Souris Family Dental in Weyburn, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Souris Family Dental, we believe that helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments is key to fostering excellent oral health habits and a trusting relationship with their dentist, today and into adulthood.
We offer a complete range of dental services for SE Saskatchewan kids and their developing smiles, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We understand that visiting the dentist can be an intimidating experience, so we aim to keep the environment calm, friendly and inviting. We're committed to working at your child's pace, taking breaks if they feel overwhelmed, and explaining each step of the process in language they can understand.
Your Child's First Visit
Babies should visit a dentist after their first six months, or at least by their first birthday. By this time, baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to erupt. It is a pivotal time to identify any problems before they evolve into big concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Souris Family Dental, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Seeing the dentist for routine exams and cleanings when your child is young will help preserve their primary teeth until they fall out naturally and are replaced by permanent teeth. At each appointment, we will review proper preventive hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile is receiving the proper care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is found to be 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. For children with extensive dental needs, we offer general anaesthesia at Weyburn Hospital.
Early Orthodontic Screening
We offer orthodontic screening to ensure that kids' teeth and jaws are developing properly, starting at around 7 years of age. Early screening allows us to catch any developing problems early and intervene when necessary with early orthodontic (phase 1) treatment.
