Your Child’s First Visit
Whether your child is one, three, or five, it’s never too late to start them on the path towards a healthy, happy smile with regular dental appointments – and there’s no better place than the KidZaam Klubhouse in Cottonwood, AZ! Our agents will give your whole family a fun tour when you first arrive, introducing the KidZaam Kommandos, pointing out all the fun goodies to play with, and getting your little one ready for their adventure in the treatment chair. Then, an initial checkup will help us understand their developing smile and any services that may be needed to support its special growth.
Checkups & Cleanings
We recommend that children be brought to the Klubhouse every six months (or twice each year) for a helpful checkup and refreshing cleaning. These visits aren’t just great because your son or daughter gets to have a blast – it’ll also help our KidZologists and agents get to the bottom of their unique smile, identifying potential problems and providing easy, comfortable treatment as early on as possible. Their smile will feel super refreshed as well after we’ve cleaned their teeth and gums!
Tricky pieces of food can get lodged in lots of places within the mouth, including the hard-to-reach grooves on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. When it comes time to brush and floss, kids often struggle with reaching these areas – that’s why dental sealants are such a helpful service! Our Klubhouse agents will apply the sealants directly to the teeth in a fast and comfortable procedure, and once in place, they’ll block food particles and cavity-causing bacteria from finding a home in your child’s smile.
Tooth-colored fillings are crafted from high-quality composite resin, which is designed to mimic the natural appearance of your child’s smile as closely as possible. This is great news for treating cavities! The treatment process only takes a single appointment, and the results can last for several years with good oral hygiene at home and regular, action-packed visits to KidZaam Dentistry here in Cottonwood. Better yet, the lack of metals in the filling will make them much more comfortable as well – no strong sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures!
To fully understand your child’s growing smile, our agents need to be able to see what’s going on underneath the surface. That’s why we use all-digital X-rays, which capture highly detailed images of teeth, the jaw, and other important structures that are available to view within seconds – we’ll even magnify and color-code them so that kids (and their parents) can more easily understand what they’re seeing! Better yet, radiation exposure is greatly reduced, which is much safer for our young patients.
It’s our hope that every child feels right at home when visiting KidZaam Dentistry – but we understand that sometimes, this just isn’t possible. If your son or daughter needs a little extra help becoming calm and relaxed in the dentist’s chair, we’re glad to offer sedation dentistry as a safe and effective solution. Nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and hospital administered IV sedation are all available here in Cottonwood, AZ.
Many people may not recognize the word “fluoride” when they first hear it, but did you know it can actually reduce tooth decay in children by anywhere from 50% to 70%? Fluoride is a mineral that’s regularly found in community water supplies, and it can help your son or daughter’s smile grow up big and strong. Professional fluoride applications are also available at our Klubhouse for patients who aren’t receiving enough exposure in their everyday lives.
Dental emergencies can happen in an instant, or they may develop slowly over time – whatever the case is, these situations are especially terrifying when they involve children. If your little one is crying about a damaged smile or a bad toothache, contact our Klubhouse right away! We’ll schedule an emergency appointment as soon as possible so that our agents can effectively treat the problem and help them smile brightly again right away.
