Your Child's Dentist In Kelowna, BC
Our Kelowna dental office is designed with plenty of kid-friendly amenities to help little ones stay calm and entertained throughout the duration of their appointment.
Each exam room features built-in televisions with cable and Netflix so they can watch their favorite shows or movies in the dental chair. We also offer all patients blankets, headphones, pillows, and even sunglasses to maximize their comfort!
Our office has recently undergone a renovation to make appointments for our youngest patients even more fun! Let your little ones play on iPads in our dedicated Kid's Corner. They'll even receive a fun mystery prize at the end of their appointment for being such a great patient.
We Offer Needle-Free Solea Laser Dentistry!
Remember your visits to the dentist as a child? Chances are, it was filled with anxiety and fear, knowing that the dentist may choose to insert a painful shot into your gums at any moment.
Luckily for your little ones, they will never have to worry about painful needles and uncomfortable numbing sensations. Kelowna Dental Centre proudly uses the Solea® All Tissue Dental Laser, a number-one selling technology that delivers anesthesia-free care for more comfortable cavity-preparation. Even better, Solea® eliminates the need for sutures for many soft tissue surgeries.
Our doctors use this technology for children to boost their sense of calm and leave positive impressions of dentists for years to come~
Relaxing Sedation Dentistry For Children
Did you know that many forms of sedation dentistry are completely safe for children?
If your child is anxious, has special healthcare needs, or just needs extra help staying calm and comfortable, we may recommend our sedation dentistry for children. Prior to your child's treatment, our team will create a sedation plan based on their needs and health history.
We offer all levels of dental sedation, including:
- Laughing Gas
- Oral Conscious Sedation
- IV Sedation
Your Child's First Dental Visit
During your child's first dental visit, our doctors and kid-friendly staff will do everything we can to make your child feel right at home. You can expect plenty of digital x-rays, intra-oral images, and other photos to get a clear idea of your child's current health.
We emphasize oral health education by providing easy-to-understand explanations designed to help kids keep their teeth and gums healthy in between appointments!
Dental Checkups & Preventive Care
Our child dentists follow oral health guidelines established by the Canadian Dental Association, advising children to be seen for checkups every 6 months. If our team discovers multiple cavities or early orthodontic concerns, we may suggest more frequent appointments.
We offer the following treatments and scans as part of our regular dental checkups:
- Dental Sealants
- Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Treatment
- Silver Diamine Treatment
- Digital X-Rays
- Intra Oral Cameras
At Kelowna Dental Centre, our focus is always on delivering preventive care that keeps smiles healthy well into the future. That said, small cavities can still occur in all ages. To treat them, we use safe, effective tooth-coloured dental fillings that are always mercury-free.
Dental Crowns For Children
If your child suffers an oral injury, or if our team discovers decay, we may recommend a dental crown to help save and treat the tooth. Remember, our team uses needle-free laser technology to reduce anxiety and boost comfort during these procedures.
Tooth Extractions For Kids
We may recommend a gentle tooth extraction to children suffering from decay or those who are experiencing crowding. Tooth extractions can ensure that their complete health stays intact as they grow.
And, if you have a teenager/young adult who is experiencing pain in the back of their mouth, they may benefit from wisdom tooth removal. Our team will take a series of digital x-rays and intra-oral scans to determine which procedure is best for your teen!
Emergency Dentist Appointments
As parents to little ones ourselves, we know that with children accidents do - and will! - happen. If your child suffers an oral injury or experiences tooth or mouth pain, we will schedule them right in for a same-day emergency dentist appointment.
And, if you are interested in reducing your child's number of emergency dentist visits, consider an athletic mouthguard. Our custom athletic mouthguards are durable and made to protect growing smiles. As a bonus, professionally-fabricated athletic mouthguards have been proven to reduce concussions.
