Your Child's First Dental Visit

If you're concerned about your child's oral health, you can rely on us to provide all-around dental care for their developing teeth and gums. One of the most common questions is when to bring your child for their first dental visit. We recommend bringing children to our Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Family Dental clinics when they get their first tooth or birthday. While it's a fact that your child will lose their baby teeth as they grow, taking care of these teeth is essential and will only benefit them in the future. Baby teeth have a thinner layer of enamel (the strong layer that protects your teeth) and are more susceptible to decay when compared to adult teeth.


Teaching your children to practice optimal oral hygiene as soon as they understand the concept is excellent. You can begin brushing your child's teeth when a tooth comes in using a soft-bristled toothbrush designed for baby teeth. Until they know not to swallow toothpaste, we suggest using only water to brush your child's teeth.


During your child's many visits to our clinic in the first few years of their life, our children’s dentists will do basic examinations of your child's mouth. If your child has missed the one-year or first-tooth mark, there's no need to worry! It's never too late to bring your child in for their first visit. Our dentists are trained to thoroughly examine your child's oral health and identify potential issues with their teeth, jaw, bone, and soft tissues.

Importance of Having a Dentist for your Child in Winnipeg

If you're nervous about taking your child for their first dental visit, you can rest easy with the services offered at Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Family Dental. Our children’s dentists in Winnipeg provide exceptional dental care for children and are dedicated to helping them start toward excellent oral health. Here are some ideas to help you prepare your child for their first visit to the dentist:

  • Talk about It: One of the best ways to prepare your child for their first dental visit is to begin talking about teeth, oral health, and dental hygiene well before their dental visit. Generally, children love to learn about the world around them and themselves. Hence, you can start by discussing the fun experience during dental treatments. There are a variety of resources for teaching children about things related to their teeth, including songs, activities, fun books, and more to help you as well.

  • Have a good attitude: Your children rely on you for everything they need through their early ages. This makes them adjust to your personal feelings and attitudes in various situations. To get your children more interested in dental treatment, show them that you, too, are excited about your dental health. But, don't forget to portray that you are relaxed and comfortable about visiting a dentist. If you're calm and happy, your children will likely be happy too.

  • Practice together: For every one of us, brushing our teeth was a new concept at one point in our lives. In the same way, we know that brushing our teeth is key to maintaining oral hygiene, and our children need to learn that. When learning a new task, doing it with a parent, older sibling, or guardian is one of the best ways to learn. To start, you can teach your children the motion of brushing teeth. They can pick up on the technique when learning under direct supervision. However, they should always be in your presence at their learning stages. If your kids show no interest in learning how to brush their teeth, you can start with some fun rewards following successful teeth brushing.

  • Choosing the right dentist: Choosing the right dentist can help create a positive attitude in your children's minds about their first dental visit. While choosing a children’s dentist based on a convenient location, flexible office hours, and a children-friendly facility may be the easiest, the most important part is choosing a dentist you and your children can trust and feel comfortable with. It is also important to consider whether your dental office has the staff to care for your children, is friendly and compassionate, and has the experience and knowledge required to provide the best care possible.

At Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Family Dental, we have years of experience providing top-notch dental care and services for your child's needs. We are always glad to answer any questions you may have. For more information, call us today.

Some Frequently Asked Questions About Children's Dentistry in Winnipeg

How Can You Prevent Your Child's Teeth from Cavities?

After consuming food, your child can develop cavities due to bacteria and food particles. Prevent cavities by ensuring your child cleanses their mouth thoroughly to remove the food source. To maintain optimal oral health, your child must brush their teeth twice daily, especially before bedtime.

Another thing you can do to prevent your child's mouth from developing cavities is to avoid putting them to sleep with fruit juices, sweetened drinks, or milk. Feel free to consult with our children's dentist in Winnipeg.

What Is the Best Toothpaste for Your Child?

It is commonly advised that your child should use fluoride-free toothpaste. If your children ingest excess amounts of fluoride at an earlier age, it might cause fluorosis in their adult teeth. Fluorosis refers to the change in the colour of your outer enamel, leading to white spots, discolouration, and mottling.

How Often Should You Schedule Your Children's Dentist Visit in Winnipeg?

Maintaining oral hygiene is essential, and more so among children. We recommend your children visit their dentist every 6-months to ensure that your child's teeth are surfacing properly. Regular dental check-ups can help reduce the risk of gum diseases and the accumulation of tartar and plaque.
