Family Dentistry FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age should a child come in for his/her first dental visit?

We recommend that children come in for their first dental visit at 1 year of age or within 6 months after their first tooth erupts. Starting dental visits at a young age can help to guarantee proper dental care and learn good dental practices.

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry addresses oral health maintenance and preventative care throughout every stage of your life, but focuses more particularly on kids and teenagers. A family dentist is your go-to doctor for scheduling regular teeth cleanings and exams.

How often should children go to the dentist?

The Canadian Dental Association recommends that children start seeing their dentist twice a year or every 6 months. This should be a standard part of their oral hygiene routine by the time your child’s first tooth emerges. It’s especially important for kids to see a dentist on a regularl basis because they don’t brush their teeth as thoroughly as adults do.

Does your office accept children?

At Preston Dental Centre we accept patients of all ages from young children to older adults. If you are looking for a new family dentist, contact Preston Dental (613) 729-3388 today to get started.

What does fluoride do and is it necessary for adults?

Fluoride treatments after your teeth have been polished helps to re-establish the fluoride seal on your teeth that can be partially removed during the polishing process. This can also help to re-mineralize any decalcified areas or areas of sensitivity.
