We generally see patients every six months for recall visits. The recall appointment involves a head and neck examination, assessment of your child's oral hygiene and a dental examination. Your child will be taught proper tooth brushing. As well, we will discuss your child's diet from a cavity prevention viewpoint. Your child's teeth will be thoroughly scaled and polished and a fluoride treatment performed. Dr. Nezon will assess your child's orthodontic development at each recall visit and any current or future orthodontic problem are discussed. Dental x-rays are only taken when absolutely necessary and only after consultation with the parent.
Our practise utilizes the most current infection control measures. Every instrument or hand piece that touches your child's mouth has been steam sterilized.
Pit and fissure sealants have had a major impact on the prevention of cavities in our patient's teeth. Sealants are clear coatings that are bonded to the biting surfaces of the permanent molars at about the age of six years. This technique has been shown to be highly effective at preventing pit and fissure cavities. Dr. Nezon will recommend this procedure for your child if it is required.
A very important time in your child's dental development is the mixed dentition stage. The mixed dentition stage occurs between the ages of six to twelve years and is the time when your child's primary teeth are being replaced by their permanent teeth. During this stage, our office is able to identify and treat many orthodontic problems. Early treatment of orthodontic problems can often reduce or eliminate the need for major orthodontic treatment. Early treatment of our mixed dentition patients provides a very valuable and cost effective service resulting in functional, aesthetic, and stable permanent teeth.
Accidents and dental trauma are a common occurrence with children. Dr. Nezon provides 24 hour emergency care for all his patients. Please feel free to call our office at any time if your child is having a dental emergency.
We our always pleased to welcome new children of any age to our practice.Our friendly staff will be happy to speak to you regarding a first visit.

My goal is to provide dental care for your child, from infancy to adulthood, in a caring, positive and
non-threatening environment. My focus is to prevent dental disease by practising advanced preventative dental techniques. The latest preventative, restorative and orthodontic procedures are practised in my office from the eruption of your child's first tooth until adulthood. -Dr. Errol Nezon
Why Choose a Paediatric Dentist?
A Paediatric Dentist, like Dr. Nezon, is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised.
A paediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education.
We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. Our office provides all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
