Early Positive Dental Experiences
Our team at LightHouse Dental is committed to helping children feel good about coming to see their dentist, so they can maintain excellent oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer a wide range of dental services for kids in Cobourg, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We understand that visiting the dentist may be an intimidating experience, so we aim to foster a calm, inviting and friendly environment. 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 the time they turn six months old, or at minimum by their first birthday. By this point, baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to emerge. Dentists can use this critical timeframe to look for any issues before they develop into larger problems.
Dental Services for Kids
At LightHouse 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 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.
