Dental Care for Kids in Augusta, KS

Caring for your teeth is crucial for maintaining good overall health. Dentists always recommend the same essential tips for keeping your teeth healthy and looking great: brush and floss regularly to prevent cavities, visit your dentist at least twice a year, avoid using your teeth to open or tear things, and steer clear of foods and drinks that can cause stains.

However, dentistry for children is a bit different. Your family dentist can explain how extra care and attention are needed to look after your kids’ teeth. Visiting the dental clinic can be a strange and even scary experience for children, so it’s essential to find a professional who can meet the needs of your whole family. At Lakeside Dental & Wellness, we provide a welcoming, comfortable, and fun environment to help kids feel at ease during their visits. Call our office today to schedule your child’s appointment!

  • What does pediatric dentistry include?

    Pediatric dentistry involves using sealants to prevent tooth decay and cavities on a child’s back molars. This preventive treatment is highly effective, as it applies a thin acrylic coating over the teeth, keeping out harmful bacteria and plaque. Fluoride application is another helpful measure to strengthen a child’s tooth enamel and prevent decay. By bonding the enamel, fluoride makes teeth strong and healthy and reverses decay.

  • What are the common issues of dental health in children?

    Many kids’ dental problems are the same ones affecting adults, but as children’s teeth are still developing, untreated dental conditions can cause poor and misaligned tooth development, leading to a more serious problem as a child grows up.

    Some of the most common issues with children are:
    – Tooth decay
    – Bad breath
    – Sensitive teeth
    – Thumb-sucking
    – Gum disease
    – Teeth grinding
    – Canker sores
    – Baby teeth-loss
    – Over-retained primary teeth
    – Dental Anxiety
