Regular dental care is an important aspect of caring for developing smiles. At Yonge Street Dental in Toronto, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and help to keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Yonge Street Dental, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments and providing them with the care and skills they need to maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer a range of dental services for Toronto kids and their young smiles, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
Our team understands that going to 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
Children should be seen by a dentist by the time they are between two and two-and-a-half years of age. By this time the primary teeth have erupted and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become more serious concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Yonge Street Dental, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile bright and 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 naturally 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 care it needs between visits to our office.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of tooth decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend treatments such as dental fillings, mouth guards or orthodontics.
Dental Sedation for Children
We understand that some children may be anxious or scared to visit the dentist. Our staff use various techniques to help children who may be experiencing dental anxiety. For children who require dental sedation, both of our dentists offer nitrous oxide and Dr. Stanley is also able to offer oral sedation for children aged 3-12 years.
