Starting oral health habits early is key.

At Market Mall Dental Care, we believe in educating kids so that they understand the importance of their oral health and maintaining a healthy smile. We work with them every step of the way so that they feel comfortable with their dental care professionals.

It may be challenging to start your child's oral health routine. Here are some tips to help keep their smile healthy:

  • Brush your child's teeth twice a day as soon as the first tooth comes in.
  • Use a soft bristled toothbrush small enough for a baby with either plain water or a small amount of non-fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Toothpaste containing fluoride can be used when your child is old enough to spit. It is normal for your child to cry when you first start brushing their teeth.
  • Your child will eventually learn to be comfortable with this as daily routine and will enjoy the attention.

We work with anxious children all the time.

It's normal for kids to be scared of the dentist. Our team is experienced and uses various tricks and tools to calm anxious children. Usually, a friendly manner and some entertaining distractions, such as their favorite movie or TV show, are enough to calm most children. Their parents helping to soothe them if they get upset also goes a long way.

In severe cases, nitrous oxide can be used to help calm your child as well. Nitrous oxide, or "laughing gas", is an anesthetic gas that’s used to calm patients during procedures. It does not fully anaesthetize a person, and is not used to put them to sleep. Nitrous oxide sedation is safe for children. If nitrous oxide is administered, there are a few care instructions to take note of:

  • The child is not to move from the bed until told to by the nurse or dentist.
  • The child is to avoid sporting activities for the rest of the day, as their balance and coordination can be effected for a short while.
  • The child is accompanied by an adult at all times during and after the sedation.
  • Nitrous oxide can only be administered by a specially trained medical professional.
