Children's Dental Services
Providing Positive Dental Experiences
At Southwood Dental, we are committed to helping children feel calm during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and in the future.
We offer a complete range of dental services for Mill Woods kids and their developing smiles while providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We know that the dentist's office can make children nervous, so we aim to keep the environment calm, friendly and inviting. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and take the time to explain everything we do during the visit.
Your Child's First Dentist Visit
Ideally, the first dental appointment should occur before your child reaches a year old. During this first visit, the dentist and the hygienist will make sure to create a bond of trust with your child and will carry out the oral examination and cleaning.
Dental Services for Kids
At Southwood Dental, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will also review proper oral hygiene techniques for proper care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing concerns regarding misalignment of the teeth, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards.
