Our friendly atmosphere and gentle care puts children at ease while undergoing a dental procedure or treatment.
Our Children’s Dentistry Services include:
Regular Checkups for Sustained Oral Health
Regular dental visits are helpful in detecting any issues that might need attention at an early stage. We recommend that children from the age of 18 months onwards must come for a dental checkup at least twice a year. This way, we can monitor development of their teeth and gums to ensure everything is going well. Detailed exams help us detect any issues early and provide necessary preventative or restorative treatments to help children maintain good oral health throughout their lives. Our clinic uses a digital x-ray system that emits 85% less radiation than the conventional models.

Fluoride Treatments to Boost Resistance to Tooth Decay
Proper doses of fluoride can both prevent and reduce tooth decay. At Joly Dental Care, we offer fluoride supplements to increase resistance to decay as well as reverse it as much as possible.
Sealants to Prevent Cavities
Even with diligent brushing and flossing, it might not be possible to get at the food particles that get stuck in the pits and fissures of your teeth. Dental sealants (a thin plastic coating) form a protective layer over the enamel to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Children of ages 6 to 14 are typically prone to cavities. If you are considering sealants for your child’s teeth, it is a good idea to have them done earlier on for maximum protection.
Fillings for Baby and Permanent Teeth
Many parents ask us why baby teeth need to be filled. Untreated baby teeth can cause cavities or infection to spread as well as affect the development of the adult or permanent teeth. Primary teeth are important as they guide the proper eruption of adult teeth. If a baby tooth is lost before the adult tooth is ready to take its place, adjacent teeth can take its place and cause space issues.

Removable Invisalign® Braces for Virtually Invisible Teeth Straightening
Crooked and crowded teeth or those that stick out affect the way they function and look. Straightening your child’s teeth not only improves appearance but also their oral health. Straight teeth are easier to clean as well as less likely to get decay or injured. The position of the teeth and jaw also impacts a child’s bite. Misalignment can make it hard to chew some foods or may even cause some teeth to wear out. Dr. Joly uses Invisalign® clear braces to treat a variety of issues including underbite, overbite, crossbite, overcrowding and gaps between teeth. They are virtually invisible, so hardly anyone will notice them; plus, they are removable braces, so kids can eat all their favourite foods as well as brush and floss properly.
