Children’s Dentistry Services: Preventive Dental Care

Our friendly general dentists in New Westminster, BC, use laser technology to ensure faster healing and reduced discomfort levels. We offer the following children’s dental care treatments:

Exams and Cleanings

Our skilled dentist examines your child’s teeth for cavities with the help of advanced technology like the DIAGNOdent. The equipment uses laser technology to scan the oral cavity for cavities and decayed tooth structure. We will also check for swollen, red, or tender gums.

We will remove hardened plaque and tartar from between the teeth and hiding along the gum line. Untreated oral plaque is one of the leading causes of cavity formation and gum disease.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants help protect pitted rear teeth from oral bacteria. Tiny food particles tend to get stuck in the grooves of the molars and premolars, and children cannot easily brush these hard-to-access teeth located at the back of the mouth. After thoroughly cleaning and drying the tooth, one of our trained dentists will apply a conditioning gel that helps the sealant bond with the tooth surface.

The entire procedure takes no more than 10 or 15 minutes.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment is an essential part of children’s dentistry in New Westminster, BC. Fluoride application helps make teeth more resilient to cavities and reverse early-stage decay.

We also offer braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, mouth guards (to reduce the effects of bruxism, sports mouth guards (to protect the teeth, gums, and lips against injuries). Please call Asante Dental Centre to book an appointment.
