Your Partners in Your Child's Oral Health!

At Canyon Dental Centre, we believe that creating a positive experience at the dentist early in life is extremely important to their long-term oral health. As parents ourselves, we understand the unique fears and concerns that children sometimes have. With our family friendly atmosphere and smiling staff members, we are here to ensure that every child’s visit to the dentist is a happy one. Our goal is to make sure your child is extremely comfortable in a professional dental setting, while also setting the educational foundation that they will draw from for the rest of their life.

Early Dental Visits Equal a Lifetime of Dental Health and Wellness!

Children's Dentistry | Canyon Dental Centre | General & Family Dentist | SE Calgary

One misconception is that since young children lose their primary teeth, the condition of those teeth is not overly important. This could not be further from the truth! Primary teeth are vital for biting and chewing foods, they also help in forming words, gaining physical confidence, and setting the foundation for the developing adult teeth that will come in. Our dental hygienists will teach your child the fundamentals of brushing and flossing, while also ensuring that everything is in line for the permanent teeth to come in.

Introducing Canyon Dentals Little Smiles Program

Introducing kids to the dentist and the importance of oral health early and in a positive way will help eliminate or reduce the anxiety that could be carried into adulthood. Every 6 months, Canyon Dental hosts a free ‘Little Smiles’ event at the clinic. This event is designed to introduce (or re-introduce) children to the dentist in a fun atmosphere setting the stage for success later in life. Children will receive a free visual exam (Xrays not included) and be shown the ‘tools’ and ‘gadgets’ of the dental world. There will be a variety of fun activities including balloon animals, face painting, activities and much more.

When Should I Bring My Child to The Dentist for the First Time?

The Canadian Dental Association recommends a dental examination within 6 months of the eruption of a child’s first tooth, or by the age of one, whichever comes first. It is important to see them early and to review important aspects of dental care and diet.

Nitrous Sedation

Sedation Dentistry | Canyon Dental Centre | General & Family Dentist | SE Calgary

We are dedicated to providing a comfortable and anxiety free experience for our patients which is why we offer nitrous oxide sedation, commonly known as laughing gas.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide, a safe and effective sedative agent mixed with oxygen, is inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide induces a state of relaxation and euphoria, helping you feel at ease during your dental treatment. It is one of the safest sedation options available and has been used in dentistry for decades.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide Sedation:

  • Quick Onset and Recovery – the effects are felt within minutes and once the mask is removed, the sedative effects wear off quickly.
  • Adjustable Levels: the level of sedation can be easily adjusted throughout the procedure ensuring your comfort at all times.
  • No Lingering Effects: Unlike other forms of sedatives, nitrous oxide wears off rapidly, allowing you to go about your day normally.
