Regular dental care is just as important for kids as it is for adults. At Westport Dental in Port Moody, we provide services to meet your child's oral health needs and keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Westport Dental, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer a complete range of dental services for kids and their developing smiles in the Tri-Cities area.
We understand that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience, so we strive to keep the environment calm, friendly, and inviting. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process in child-friendly language that they can understand.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should be seen by a dentist after the first six months of age or by the child's first birthday. By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are beginning to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become big concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Westport Dental, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques to assist your child in properly caring for their smile at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child develops a cavity, is at risk of decay, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as mouth guards or dental fillings.
