We Offer Free Dental Appointments to Children Under 3 Years Old!

Main Street Dental offers Children’s Dentistry where we address oral health at every stage of life, and we welcome patients of all ages. We are proud to offer services tailored to children and their needs, from birth all the way to adolescence.

As parents ourselves, we understand the unique needs and concerns that children have when it comes to dental visits. We believe that visits to the dentist should be an enjoyable experience, and we do our best to create a friendly and comfortable environment. By encouraging proper dental care and techniques in a comfortable and caring environment, our younger patients have an enjoyable time at the office and are eager to continue future dental visits. We are also proud to offer complimentary “happy smile” check-ups to all children under the age of three, to encourage and support early dental care and maintenance.

General Dental Guidelines

Main Street Dental strives to create a general awareness of good oral health. Early prevention and education help make long term care and maintenance possible. When it comes to your child’s dental health, there are many things to take into account. Below are some general guidelines for dental health that parents and caregivers may consider as their child grows and develops.

Before Birth – Finish All Dental Work

To continue improvement in the oral health of children, parents must be diligent even before birth. Unbeknownst to most parents and providers, the bacteria responsible for dental cavities can be transferred from parents (primarily mothers) to their young offspring. New-born’s are not actually born with the primary bacteria (Streptococcus mutans) necessary to cause dental cavities. Therefore, it is recommended that parents have their dental treatment completed before the birth of their child to minimize the transference of Strep mutans.  This can help minimize your child’s risk of developing early childhood cavities.

Infancy – Bedtime Bottles Should Only Contain Water

Another important fact to remember is never to put your baby to bed with a bottle filled with anything but water. Milk, fruit drinks, apple juice, or sugar water in a bottle overnight can wreak havoc with developing teeth, often resulting in rampant dental cavities.

When Teeth First Come In – Begin Brushing

Another way to prevent early dental cavities is to begin brushing as soon as the first teeth erupt into the mouth. This should be done twice daily (once in the morning and once before bedtime) with very little toothpaste. Starting this pattern of home care early on will develop a healthy habit of good oral hygiene that will last a lifetime.

At 1 year – Begin Semi-Annual Exams

By one year of age, your child should have his or her first teeth, and the first dental examination should follow soon thereafter. Regular check-ups every six months should then be completed in order to maintain good oral health and treat issues while they are relatively small.

At 7-8 and 12 Years Old – Apply Dental Sealants

Dental sealants help prevent the development of dental cavities in newly erupted permanent back teeth (molars and pre-molars). They involve the application of a bonded material to seal off the deep grooves that these teeth possess. They are quick and easy to apply, and very effective in preventing the onset of cavities on these tooth surfaces.

We invite you to call Main Street Dental at (403) 948-7945 to set up an appointment for your child to meet with our quality dental team, so they can begin their journey towards a lifetime of dental care!

We absolutely love this office. I have extremely high anxiety and they are so patient with me. My 4 year old asked if we can go back next week as she had a wonderful time at her cleaning. Great experiences every time and billing is very reasonable.

From the minute you walk in, everyone is kind and professional. The hygienists and dentists provide clear instructions and the front desk always has the paperwork taken care of right away. Just a great group of people!

Amazing office, I have been going here for 25 years since I was a kid. I broke my tooth playing hockey, they got me in the very next morning, referred me to a specialist for more detailed gum work (who I seen the next day) and temporarily fixed my tooth all in the same week. Great office and everyone seems to have a sense of humor!
