Solutions For Your Smile

Kids Dentistry in Richmond, TX

We have all been there and understand how taking your child to the dentist can feel stressful, especially for first-time visits. Fortunately, here at Smile Solutions Richmond, we are here to change that experience into a positive one.

We aim to remove any fear or apprehension your little ones may have and turn what was once a dreaded experience to a fun one filled with happiness and enjoyment.

By choosing Smile Solution Richmond, we help your child develop a healthy relationship with dentistry, setting them up for a lifetime of good oral health and bright smiles!

Friendly Dental Environment And Staff

At Smile Solutions Richmond, we are dedicated to offering only the highest quality treatments to all of our patients, no matter how young or old they are.

As soon as you walk through our doors, you will be greeted with a warm welcome from one of our receptionists, meaning that your little ones are instantly made to feel more at ease and less intimidated.

Walking into an unfamiliar building full of strangers can be nerve-wracking for any child so we have designed our dental studio to provide a feeling of relaxation and comfort, from our calming décor to our comfortable seating options, whilst waiting for your appointment. We don’t want our little patients to feel anxious before their treatment even begins!

When it comes to your child’s appointment and you walk into the treatment room, we can assure you that the room's décor is not going to be cold, glum and scary. Instead, it follows the exact same theme as the waiting room – relaxing and comfortable!

It isn’t unusual for a child to be expecting a very scary room with a scary crazy dentist, after all our kids’ minds can create some crazy imaginative scenarios. This is why we have made sure that our dentists and dental assistants are kind, caring and attentive from start to finish.

Whilst we make every effort to ensure your child feels relaxed and happy, there may still be fears of the appointment and this is entirely understandable. Accordingly, no treatment is rushed and no problem is too big for our team.

Our main aim is to see our patient walk out of our clinic with a big smile. After all, that is what we are here for…to provide patients with smiles that they are proud of!

Kids Dentistry Checkups And Preventative Care

Our team follows the creed, ‘prevention is better than cure’, for all patients, and this is doubly so for our youngest patients. If we provide healthy and gleaming smiles at a young age, this sets them up for a successful lifetime of gleaming and healthy smiles!

Whilst many might believe that children receive a less thorough examination because they are younger, this is far from the truth. In fact, at Smile Solutions Richmond your young patients get the same level of care and attention during their check-ups as our adult patients.

Our general dentist, Dr. Asha Patel, will provide every little patient with a comprehensive but extremely gentle examination. This will include checking each tooth, cleaning them, and performing any preventative treatments needed to retain your child’s gleaming smile.

Dental Crowns For Kids

While carrying out our examination, we will check for any teeth that are badly damaged or decayed. These teeth will require a dental crown, but fear not - these will be durable and help your little one hold onto their primary tooth long enough for the permanent tooth to come in.

We use dental crowns for our younger patients to help protect the affected tooth hold the spot for its permanent tooth counterpart. This crown will prevent further damage to the tooth, which in turn can reduce further complications down the line.

Tooth Extractions For Kids

The last thing any parent or child wants to hear when they come for an appointment is that they require a tooth extraction, especially when the patient is a young child.

Whilst we constantly endeavor to save your child’s teeth to the best of our ability, unfortunately, there may be certain situations where this isn’t possible.

But our team is professionally equipped and trained to handle this as gently and stress-free as possible and ensure that your child’s well-being is the biggest priority during the procedure.

Natural Tooth Fillings For Kids

While we try to feed our children a diet containing fruit and vegetables, we all understand that they love sweets and chocolate. (I mean, who doesn't?)

However, too many sweet treats can lead to discomfort, which can lead to tooth cavities. If this is the case during the check-up, we can quickly rectify this with minimal discomfort or signs of a filling.

This is because our team uses a specific filling that is a natural tooth color, meaning that it will blend in with the tooth's natural appearance while still continuing to strengthen it. Throughout the entire process, we provide a calming approach, leaving your child relaxed and comfortable!

If you are looking for a dentist you can trust to care for your little one and their pearly whites, then Smile Solution Richmond is the dentist studio for you.

We will go the extra mile to guarantee that your child's smile remains bright and healthy throughout their childhood, meaning there is a much greater chance of going through adulthood with a happy and healthy mouth!

When Should My Kid First Visit The Dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child see a dentist for the first time within 6 months of their first tooth erupting, and no later than their first birthday.

When Should My Kid Start Brushing Their Teeth?

You can start caring for your child's oral health before their first tooth erupts! It is important to establish a good routine that includes gentle gum cleaning.

Ideally, your child should start brushing their teeth as soon as they appear. Do this slowly at first and gradually increase the brushing routine, but remember to focus on routine and fun.
