We think kids are great! Some dentists at Canyon Dental are now seeing the kids of patients that started coming here as kids themselves. We won’t say who that dentist is but it makes him feel pretty good about himself.
Healthy baby teeth are important because they serve as a template for the adult teeth when they come in. That’s why we would rather fill a baby tooth than wiggle it out if it gets a cavity. That may help avoid expensive orthodontic treatment in the future.
Bringing your child in at a young age, like two and a half, also assures that they develop great oral hygiene habits that stay with them for the rest of their lives. They also get to know the clinic and are never worried about visiting it as they get older.
There are too many people out there that are fearful of dental offices and we want to change that! Bringing in a child at an early age really helps with that problem and believe it or not, they actually like coming to see us after a while.
