Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Trimac Dental Centre, 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 Halifax kids and their developing smiles and will do what we can to provide your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We realize that going to the dentist can be an unpleasant or scary 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.
Your Child's First Visit
Babies should be seen by a dentist once they reach six months of age or at least by the child's first birthday. By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth have begun to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become major issues.
Dental Services for Kids
At Trimac Dental Centre, 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 the permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile is getting the proper care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is 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.
Sedation for Children
Your child’s dentist may recommend sedation for long or rigorous procedures. This will help your child feel more at ease during their appointment and make the experience as positive as it can be.
