At Academy Dental Group in Winnipeg, our dentists and team provide dental care and treatment options tailored to the unique needs of children.
We help kids feel at ease from the minute they enter our dental office. When you arrive, our friendly team will welcome you. You can wait for your appointment to begin in our reception area, where we have books and toys for kids.
Once your child is in the dentist's chair, the dentist and hygienist will talk to them about their dental health in language they understand, and answer all their questions.
We are happy to work at your child's pace, and will take breaks if they get overwhelmed.
Academy Dental Group provides the following treatment options for children:
Regular dental checkups and cleanings are just as important for children as they are for adults. Children should visit the dentist every six months to help prevent problems from developing, and to catch and treat those that are already developing early.
Primary (baby) teeth are essential for children's healthy oral development, and for the health of the whole body. Baby teeth are there for children to chew and digest their food properly, and they act as guides for the adult teeth as they erupt as well.
It is recommendation that a baby has their first visit before the age of one. We participate in Manitoba Dental Association's Free First Visit Program, so if your child is under age three, their first dental appointment will be free.
Visiting the dentist on a regular basis when your child is young will help preserve the baby teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by the adult teeth.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps prevent tooth decay. At Academy Dental Group, we provide fluoride treatment for children to help keep their teeth strong and resistant to decay. Learn More
Despite best efforts to ensure good dental hygiene, sometimes kids end up with cavities. Cavity care for children is very similar to cavity care for adults, because preserving tooth health is the most important aspect.
To preserve your child’s oral health, your dentist will remove the decayed material from the baby teeth and fill them. Learn More
Dental sealants are coatings that are applied to the molars and premolars to help protect them from developing cavities. Molars and premolars often have deep fissures in them that are difficult for children to clean with regular brushing. Sealants help seal off these fissures of that bacteria and plaque cannot build up inside them.
At every appointment your child attends, the dentist will monitor their growing smile for any sign of developing misalignments. If a problem is caught early enough, early orthodontic intervention can prevent it from getting worse. As a result, more invasive orthodontic treatment when your child is older may not be required.
During each appointment, the dentist or hygienist will review proper oral hygiene techniques with your child, to ensure that each tooth is getting a proper cleaning at home. Brushing and flossing instruction will be reviewed, and they can also make suggestions for supplementary hygiene aids, provide dietary advice, and more.
