Regular dental care is just as important for kids as it is for adults. At Dr. Matthew S Ng Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Coquitlam, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, to help keep their smile healthy and happy.
Positive Early Dental Experiences
At Dr. Matthew S Ng Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer a range of dental services for Coquitlam kids and their developing smiles, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We know that going to the dentist can be intimidating 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 get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
Children should be seen by a dentist after the first six months of age or at a minimum by the child's first birthday. By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, should be starting to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become more serious concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Dr. Matthew S Ng Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, 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 will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each appointment, we review proper oral hygiene techniques to help make sure 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.
