Fun & Friendly Dental Care for Kids
Positive dental experiences during childhood can encourage a lifetime of bright smiles and good oral health habits. We welcome kids of all ages to Canyon Golf Family Dentistry, and we understand that our younger patients have their own unique needs when it comes to dental care. It’s not always easy to get kids excited about going to the dentist, so we go the extra mile to ensure that your child’s dental visits are comfortable, comprehensive, and most of all, fun!
Our kid-friendly amenities are sure to make your child feel more at home in our care:
- Overhead TVs with Cartoons & Movies
- Cozy Blankets & Music Headphones
- Play Area with Toys & Video Games
- Beverage Station with Water & Juice
- Treasure Chest & Cavity-Free Club
As your child’s smile develops, so does the scope of his or her dental care. During the first few years, Dr. Soto is primarily concerned with tooth eruption and oral habits like thumb or finger sucking. In older children and teens, proper oral hygiene and orthodontic needs tend to become more important. Dr. Soto always addresses these issues with exceptional kindness, patience, and understanding.
Routine Dental Cleanings & Exams
Kids’ dental visits are a family affair, so you’re welcome to accompany your child back into the treatment area while he or she gets familiar with our office and team. After the visit, Dr. Soto will thoroughly discuss his findings with you and let you know what you expect in the months and years to come.
Protective Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are a clear protective coating that is applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth, an area where food particles commonly get caught and cause cavities. Dr. Soto can apply sealants quickly with no shots or drilling, effectively protecting your child’s permanent teeth for many years.
Fluoride strengthens enamel, protects teeth from decay, and has even been proven to reverse the early stages of decay. Most toothpastes include a safe and effective amount of fluoride, but Dr. Soto also provides a more concentrated fluoride rinse after your child’s cleaning.
Custom Athletic Mouthguards
Athletic mouthguards not only protect your child’s teeth and soft tissues, but they also help prevent more serious head trauma like concussions. Dr. Soto can create a soft, custom-fitted mouthguard to protect your child's teeth, gums, lips, and cheeks from sports-related injuries.
Tooth-colored fillings blend in with your child’s other healthy teeth, and they require less preparation than traditional silver fillings. That means fewer shots, less drilling, and faster appointments for your child!
Dr. Soto and our team at Canyon Golf Family Dentistry have a great deal of experience with children of all ages. We know how to show kids that dental visits don’t have to be scary—in fact, they can even be fun!
