Routine dental care is just as important for kids as it is for adults. At Dr. Rachel Navaneelan & Associates in Cornwall, our paediatric dental services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Dr. Rachel Navaneelan & Associates, we believe that helping children feel at ease in a calm, friendly and inviting dental office is the first step on a path to excellent oral health, today and into adulthood.
We offer a wide range of paediatric dental services for Cornwall kids and their developing smiles, and are committed to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We understand that visiting the dentist can be an intimidating experience, so we strive to foster an environment in which your child can feel comfortable. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they're feeling overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process in kid-friendly terms.
Your Child's First Visit
Babies should visit a dentist by their first birthday. By this time, baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to emerge. It is a pivotal time to spot any issues before they become big concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Dr. Rachel Navaneelan & Associates, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
- Preventive Dental Hygiene
In your child's first years, seeing the dentist for routine exams and cleanings will help preserve their primary teeth until they are ready to fall out naturally and be replaced by their permanent teeth. At each appointment, we will review proper preventive hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile receives the proper care at home.
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 the permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile is getting the proper 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.
- Paediatric Dentistry
Some children are too young for certain dental procedures to be performed in a dentist's office. Fortunately, we can recommend those procedures be performed in a hospital setting under general anesthesia (provided by an anesthetist).
Patients with complex or unusual oral facial conditions, or special needs, can benefit from integrated specialist care at hospitals, where specialists and dentists collaborate to care for patients safely and effectively.
