Our Family Dentistry Services
Early dental visits for your kids will emphasize teaching them the value of preventive dentistry. You should arrange for your child to have his or her first dental examination after the age of one or when their teeth start to erupt. Children's first few teeth may develop cavities, which can spread to their adult teeth and cause serious issues with oral development. After that, you should have regular checkups about every six months. DDS Collingwood will use these visits to check in on your child’s brushing habits, offer oral hygiene tips, and make sure that your child’s adult teeth develop in a safe and normal way.
As your child begins to enter the bold and rebellious phase of their life, their teeth can grow out of control. When your child has finished shedding their baby teeth, dental braces are frequently used to straighten crooked teeth and create the perfect smile for them. On the market nowadays, there are many different types of braces, from vintage colored brackets to futuristic Invisalign. Your teen's wisdom teeth could be impacted or positioned incorrectly, resulting in discomfort, crowding, and issues when they try to erupt from the wrong gumline. Our dentists at DDS Collingwood are equipped to handle teenage dental issues. Contact us to get started
Although adults are just as susceptible to tooth decay as teenagers are, they are even more likely to experience gum disease. As you age, the likelihood of developing a gum condition increases, necessitating routine dental appointments. Scaling, root planing, or even laser gum surgery may be recommended by your dentist to help treat conditions like gingivitis and periodontal disease. Get started today for the whole family.

Within 6 months of their first tooth coming in or by their first birthday.
Although this timeframe seems early, it’s important to bring them in so that you can find out if the cleaning you’re doing at home is working and if any issues need fixing. Bringing your child to the dentist young also allows them to become familiar with the environment and our team so that they feel comfortable during future visits!

Teeth cleaning is a form of preventative dentistry. During the appointment, one of our dental hygienists uses professional dental tools to gently remove soft plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then, they will floss and polish your teeth to ensure they’re looking their best when you leave.

A family dentist is someone who has the education, training, and experience to treat patients of all ages. At one clinic, you will have access to a wide variety of treatments, from dental check-ups to implants. Benefits of a family dentist include simplifying appointments for everyone in your family, eliminating any anxiety related to visiting the dentist, and thorough preventative care. You and your family end up building a long-lasting relationship with their dental team, which makes going to the dentist less stressful. Your dentist also knows your oral health history, which makes diagnosing your kids’ oral health a lot easier.
