We go the extra mile to provide the exceptional care your child deserves while treating every parent like a member of our family.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE HERE
Your child’s dental health is our top priority. All of the services performed at KB Kids Dentistry are reliable, healthy and safe for children of all ages.
Each child’s teeth are different. At KB Kids Dentistry, we emphasize one-on-one attention for each child in order to create a treatment plan that is unique to each patient’s individual dental needs.
At KB Kids Dentistry, our goal is to prevent dental issues before it’s too late. We recommend a check-up every 6 months to assure no underlying problems.
Restorative dentistry is dental work required as the result of cavities. The earlier your child learns and follows healthy oral habits, the less likely they are to need restorative dentistry. When necessary, it is our goal to make the process as safe and relaxing as possible. We offer different levels of sedation based on the individual child’s anxiety.
TYPES OF SEDATION WE OFFER
NITROUS OXIDE SEDATION
Our most popular tool for helping our patients to be more comfortable with restorative dentistry is nitrous oxide (laughing gas). The AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) says that “Nitrous oxide with oxygen is a safe, effective sedative agent used to calm a child’s fear of the dental visit and enhance effective communication. Additionally, it works well for children whose gag reflex interferes with dental treatment.”
KB Kids Dentistry also offers general anesthesia as a treatment option. We can perform this treatment at Baptist Health Cumberland Valley Surgery Center in Corbin.
General anesthesia may be indicated for children with extensive treatment needs that are extremely uncooperative, special needs patients, or patients that are too young to be a candidate for sedation.
WHAT AGE SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY CHILD’S FIRST APPOINTMENT??
The AAPD recommends that your child should be seen no later than 6 months after their first tooth erupts from the gum. Little teeth need as much attention as “big teeth” to prevent decay and encourage life-long healthy habits.
DOES PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY COST MORE?
Not necessarily! Every parent wants the best for their children, and we do too! Our practice is happy to work with you to create a dental hygiene plan for your child that will suit you and your family’s financial needs.
DOES YOUR CHILD NEED BRACES?
If your child is age 7 or older, it’s time to visit an orthodontist. The earlier you can get your child in for an examination with an orthodontist, the easier it will be to ensure they start treatment at the right time to obtain the best results on the easiest path.
