Here are just some of our top kids dentistry services:
Your Child's First Dental Visit
When your child comes into our Tampa, FL dental office for their first dental appointment, they will be greeted by our kind, patient team members. From there, they will take necessary digital x-rays, images, and other photos to get a clear idea of your child's current health.
During the appointment, we will work to educate both you and your child, offering tips and tricks along the way to ensure teeth stay healthy in between appointments. We welcome you in as part of the process and will be sure to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Checkups and Preventive Care
Our kids dentists follow oral health guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) advising children to be seen for checkups every 6 months. If we discover anything that requires follow-up care, such as cavities or orthodontic concerns, your child may need to come in for more frequent appointments.
Did you know that 43% of children ages 2-19 currently have or have had cavities? When a child attends frequent dental appointments, the risk for cavities greatly diminishes, but they still can form for a number of reasons.
If we discover a small cavity in one of your child's teeth, we will likely recommend a tooth-colored dental filling to seal it. At Carrollwood Smiles, we are an amalgam-free office which means we only use mercury-free materials to make our restorations! This means your child will get a filling that is both safe and natural-looking.
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 the tooth. We always offers same-day dental crowns that are made right here in our office. This special technology eliminates the need for temporary crowns and follow-up appointments!
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 their total body health as your child grows.
Is your teen experiencing pain in the back of their mouth? We offer preventive wisdom tooth extractions and even remove impacted wisdom teeth!
Sedation Dentistry For Children
If your child suffers from dental anxiety or has special healthcare needs that make dental visits challenging, please let us know ahead of your appointment. We can provide either laughing gas or oral conscious sedation to make your child's time in the dental chair a relaxing one.
Prior to administering either sedation option, our doctors will review your child's medical history to ensure they get the best level of sedation for them.
