Ensure Your Child’s Oral Health With Our Children's Care Services
We love kids at Smiles 4 U in Overland Park! We offer comprehensive children’s care services to keep your child healthy and happy. Our team of dedicated professionals understands the important role that dental care plays in a child’s overall health and well-being. Our pediatric services ensure that your children receive the highest quality care.
Why is children's dental care so important?
Taking care of your child’s oral health from an early age can help prevent issues such as cavities, gum disease, and even crowding and misaligned teeth later in life. Our team is proud to provide preventive dental services to children to promote good oral hygiene and ensure their small smiles stay healthy.
What is involved in children's care?
At Smiles 4 U, we strive to make every visit a positive one for your child. We create an environment that is comfortable and inviting to children and their families. We thoroughly examine your child’s mouth, including the gums and soft tissue, followed by a detailed cleaning to remove any built-up plaque and tartar. We’ll apply fluoride treatments and sealants if necessary and instruct your child on age-appropriate oral homecare habits. If we find any issues that need to be addressed, we’ll discuss them with you and your child.
What are the benefits of children's care?
Children’s care can help spot potential issues before they become more serious problems. Preventive treatments such as dental sealants and fluoride applications help reduce the risk of cavities. We want your child’s experience of “going to the dentist” to be positive in order to ensure a future of healthy oral care habits.
When should children's care start?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit around the age of one or within six months after the first tooth erupts. We’re trained to work with children with a friendly and non-threatening approach so they feel comfortable and relaxed during their visit.
Who should consider children's care?
Parents, guardians, and caregivers of any child between the ages of one and 18 should consider seeking children's care. We are committed to providing our pediatric patients with special care that meets their individual needs and try to add a little fun during their visit.
