Regular dental care is just as important for kids as it is for adults. At Centre dentaire Dr Martin Turcotte in Trois-Rivières, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, to help keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Centre dentaire Dr Martin Turcotte, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can establish and maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
Our team of dental professionals offer a range of dental services for Trois-Rivières kids and their developing smiles, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We understand 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 become overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should be seen by a dentist at about six months of age or at minimum by the child's first birthday. By this age, the baby's primary teeth are beginning to erupt and it is a critical time for spotting oral health issues before they become bigger concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Centre dentaire Dr Martin Turcotte, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy and happy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young helps to preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out naturally and be replaced by the permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will take the time to 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 treatments such as dental fillings, or fluoride.
