Kids need regular dental care just as much as adults do. At Alta Vista Laser Dental Centre in Ottawa, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and to keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Alta Vista Laser Dental Centre, we believe that helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments is key to ensuring they develop a trusting relationship with their dentist, and maintain excellent oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer a complete range of dental services for Ottawa kids and their developing smiles, and are committed to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We understand that attending 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.
Your Child's First Visit
Babies should visit a dentist after they turn six months old, or at least by their first birthday. By this time, baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to emerge and it is a pivotal time to spot any problems before they become big concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Alta Vista Laser Dental Centre, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
When your child is young, seeing the dentist for regular exams and cleanings will help preserve their primary teeth until they are ready to fall out naturally on their own and be 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 and attention at home.
Restorative Dental Services
Has your child developed a cavity? Perhaps they are at risk of tooth decay or experiencing misalignment issues. In these cases, your dentist may recommend restorative treatments such as mouth guards or dental fillings. When we fill cavities for children, most can be done without using anesthetic needles, using dental lasers.
Help For Nursing Moms
Our dentist work with lactation specialists in the Ottawa area, and offer to help new moms experiencing nursing difficulties by providing lip tie and tongue tie release for infants up to 3 months old using laser. Dental lasers can eliminate the need to cut away tissue or cause trauma to surrounding tissue, helping young patients heal quickly and experience little to no discomfort with their procedure.
