When Should Kids See A Dentist?
Children should have dental visits every 6 months! Good oral hygiene habits can save a lot of pain, time, and money in the long run.
Your child needs a dentist immediately if they have:
- Tooth pain
- Visible tooth decay
- Swelling in gums or face
- Injury to teeth or surrounding tissues after a fall or accident

Our Kids’ Dental Services
Kids’ routine checkup
Routine dentist visits are a key part of children’s health.
During a regular dental check up for kids, we will do a full dental examination and may take x-rays if required. We will explain your child’s condition and treatment needs and provide routine cleaning if no other treatment is required.
Scale and polish
Your child should regularly get a thorough cleaning from a professional, in addition to regular brushing and flossing.
It is during such visits that your child builds up their confidence in seeing a dentist regularly and forms healthy oral care habits for life!
Fillings - for cavities
If your child has tooth decay (known as caries or cavities), they’ll need a pediatric dental filling to limit and repair the damage.
We only use tooth-coloured filling material that is aesthetic and non-toxic.
Vital Pulp Therapy - baby root canal
For tooth damage or decay that is close to or only just reached the tooth pulp, Joy is pleased to offer pulp therapy (pulpotomy) for kids.
This is a less invasive alternative to root canal treatment for children that can be done to preserve baby teeth.
When a child’s tooth cannot be saved, we offer careful, gentle pediatric tooth removal.
Sometimes, Joy dentists also recommend extractions of baby teeth that are preventing the proper eruption of the underlying adult teeth.
Kids’ dental crowns - restorations
A pediatric dental stainless steel crown is often needed:
- After a pulpotomy or pediatric root canal treatment
- to support a badly decayed and damaged tooth.
- to keep the baby teeth until the adult tooth comes in.
It is important to keep the baby tooth in order to maintain space for the adult tooth to come in. Early extractions of baby teeth can result in future dental problems that can be difficult and costly to fix.
Need an affordable kids’ dental clinic for orthodontics? We provide age-specific kids’ braces and kids’ Invisalign®.
