Pediatric Dentistry Services At Coons Family Dental

Get Your Child A Trusted Dentist Where They Can Have Fun!

Dental health is one of the most significant aspects of your child’s overall well-being. Poor dental health can affect your child’s capacity to eat, learn, play, and sleep at home or at school. However, our pediatric dental services are proven to prevent childhood dental problems. Take a look at what we have to offer!

Fillings

A child’s health is always a major concern for parents. They need special care from the time their first baby tooth comes in all the way through adulthood. Our dentist suggests that parents visit for a consultation as soon as their first tooth erupts and to maintain regular preventative visits. If your child complains of any discomfort or you notice any change in their teeth that might look like a cavity a quick visit to your dentist can help you avoid expensive bills.

Fillings are a minor procedure of removing decay and filling the space with tooth-colored composite. Children respond well to fillings and rarely complain of discomfort.

Extractions

Extracting children’s teeth is common and you do not need to worry about your child needing teeth removed. Here at Coons Family Dental children are treated with gentle care and patience.  Our dentist is extremely kind and compassionate and works with parents and children to reduce their anxiety.

Our procedure is painless and hassle free! It normally takes 10-14 days for the extraction site to heal, but most kids don’t complain about any pain after the tooth is removed. We aim to render our services for children with care. 

Cleaning

Do you want your child to be safe and healthy? It is important to put them on the right track toward dental health at an early age. Our dentist is highly skilled, and will examine your child’s teeth for obvious signs of cavities, sores, gum disease, and misalignment. After the evaluation, any plaque on your child’s teeth will be removed. It is important to understand that receiving a dental cleaning and exam every six months is a must to maintain children’s dental health.

FAQs

Are dental x-rays safe for my kids?

Yes. Dental x-rays have been proven to be safe for kids of all ages and are only taken when necessary.

What toothpaste should my child use?

The American Dental Association recommends toothpaste with no fluoride for children under the age of six. It’s a precautionary measure for children as they are likely to swallow more toothpaste than they actually use.

How often should I take my child to the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends you bring your child to see a dentist as soon as their first tooth comes in. Following their first visit, regular dental check-ups should happen every six months at minimum. Any additional health conditions or problems can affect the number of visits needed for your child.

How often should a child visit for a cleaning?

A dental visit usually involves an exam and dental cleaning, and x-rays as needed. Your child should have a cleaning every six months.

How do I prepare my kids for dental treatment?

Kids are likely to be scared and may try to avoid dental treatment. Eliminate their fear by talking about how quick and easy the procedure will be, and let them interact with other kids who have had good experiences at the dentist to feel more comfortable. Avoid telling them about pain or the need to get a shot!
