Contact us today to learn more about introducing your children 7-11 years old to a pediatric dentist in Newmarket!children 7-11 years old

Visiting the dentist with your child

At the first visit, we will give you and your child a tour of our entire Newmarket office, including Mr. Thirsty (our suction tip), and let you take a ride up and down in the dental chair! We invite parents to help us educate their kids about positive dental practices—starting with lifelong habits for flossing, brushing, and nutrition, as well as sugar bugs!

We invite you to stay with your children during their initial examination but suggest allowing them to be in the room by themselves whenever possible for future visits. Our dentists can typically establish a closer rapport with your child when you are not present. For added comfort, your child can bring his or her movie to watch during their appointment. At the end of their dental treatment, kids pick out a prize from our Treasure Chest to reward good behaviour.

Establishing their dental home

We strive to empower your children so they gain confidence and overcome any apprehension. However, we will never forbid you to stay with your child if you are both more comfortable this way. Establishing a “dental home” for your child will help your child receive appropriate, preventive, routine oral care. This is the ongoing relationship between dentist and patient, delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated and family-centred way.

You can help us make your children 7-11 years old first visit to their Newmarket dentist enjoyable and positive. Be honest with your children about where they are going and explain that our dental team will answer any questions they may have. Try to refrain from using words that might cause fear, such as “needle,” “pull,” “drill,” or “hurt.” We strive to use words that convey the same message but are much more pleasant.

Primary teeth

Although all 20 primary teeth (i.e. baby teeth) usually appear by age 3, the pace and order of their eruption vary. It is vital to maintain good oral care of these teeth, as neglected cavities frequently lead to problems that affect developing permanent teeth. Permanent teeth should begin appearing around age 6.

Primary teeth are essential for:

  • Providing space for permanent teeth and guiding them to the correct position
  • Proper chewing and eating
  • Permitting normal development of the jaw bones and muscles
  • Affecting the development of speech
  • Improving appearance 

Permanent teeth begin appearing around age 6, starting with the first molars and lower central incisors. By age 4 or 5, children should be able to brush their teeth twice a day with supervision until approximately age 7 to ensure they are doing a thorough job. However, each child is different. Our dentist can help you determine whether your child has the skill level to brush properly on their own.

Eating habits and good hygiene

While fluoride is beneficial to teeth, too little or too much can be detrimental. Little or no fluoride will not strengthen the teeth to resist cavities, while excessive fluoride ingestion can lead to dental fluorosis. Encourage your children to spit out fluoride toothpaste when brushing—and only give fluoride supplements to children upon the recommendation of your pediatric dentist in Newmarket, ON.

In general, your child requires a well-balanced diet to achieve optimum oral health. Choose a variety of nutritious foods and limit snacks, which often lead to cavity formation. Encourage good oral hygiene to remove bacteria and leftover food particles that create cavities and brush older toddlers’ teeth at least twice a day. Furthermore, it is essential to visit the dentist routinely every six months to start your child on a lifetime of good dental health. Call our team today to book an appointment!

Children 7-11 Years Old FAQ

How do I clean and maintain my night guard?
Cleaning and maintaining a night guard is essential to ensure it remains effective and hygienic. Here are the steps to clean and maintain a night guard for children 7-11 years old in Newmarket:
  1. Daily Cleaning:
    1. Rinse: After each use, rinse the night guard with cool water to remove saliva and debris.
    2. Brush: Use a soft toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste to gently brush the night guard. Avoid using hot water as it can warp the material.
  2. Deep Cleaning:
    1. Soak: Once a week, soak the night guard in a denture cleaner or a mixture of water and mouthwash for thorough cleaning.
    2. Dry: Allow the night guard to air dry completely before storing it in its case to prevent bacterial growth.
  3. Storage:
    1. Case: Store the night guard in a ventilated case to keep it dry and protect it from damage.
    2. Inspect: Regularly check the night guard for signs of wear and tear, and bring it to dental check-ups for professional inspection.
Can I wear a night guard during the day?

Yes, a night guard can be worn during the day if necessary. Although night guards are primarily designed to protect teeth from grinding and clenching during sleep, they can also be used during the day to prevent teeth from clenching during stressful situations or if your child participates in activities that increase the risk of dental injury. For children 7-11 years old in Newmarket, it’s best to consult with a dentist to ensure that using a night guard during the day is appropriate for their specific needs.

Is it normal for an 11-year-old to have a cavity?
Yes, it is relatively common for an 11-year-old to have a cavity. Several factors contribute to the development of cavities in children:
  • Diet: Consumption of sugary snacks and drinks increases the risk of tooth decay.
  • Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can lead to plaque buildup and cavities.
  • Dental Development: Molars, which are more prone to cavities, begin to emerge around this age.
To prevent cavities, it’s crucial to:
  • Encourage Good Oral Hygiene: Teach children to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and floss daily.
  • Regular Dental Visits: Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings for early detection and treatment of cavities.
  • Healthy Diet: Limit sugary snacks and drinks and promote a balanced diet.
For children 7-11 years old in Newmarket, maintaining good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits are key to preventing and managing cavities effectively.


For children 7-11 years old in Newmarket, proper care and maintenance of a night guard involve daily rinsing, brushing with a soft toothbrush, weekly soaking, and proper storage in a ventilated case. Night guards can be worn during the day if needed, but consultation with a dentist is recommended. It is also relatively normal for an 11-year-old to have a cavity due to factors like diet and oral hygiene. To prevent cavities, encourage good oral hygiene habits, regular dental visits, and a healthy diet.
