Positive Early Dental Experiences
Children's dental visits at an early age can help set the foundation for a lifetime of good oral hygiene habits.
We offer a complete range of dental services for kids in Nepean and their developing smiles, and we are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We realize that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience for some children, 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.
At Allegra Dental, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
Contact our dental team if you are interested in learning more about how these routines and habits may enhance your child's oral health. We are here to provide you with the advice you need to help your child have a lifetime of good dental health.
Your Child's First Visit
We recommend that children have their first dental exam once they turn six months old, or at the latest by the time they turn one. The primary, or first teeth, should be beginning to emerge by this time, which makes it a crucial time to catch any issues early on before they get out of hand.
Forming Good Oral Hygiene Habits
At Allegra Dental, 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 permanent teeth. We will go through good oral hygiene practices at each appointment to make sure your child's smile is receiving the right 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.
