Family Oriented Dental Services

family dental services
At Zona Rosa Dental, we understand that children (and sometimes adults) often need extra-special care. The dentist’s office can be an unsettling place for children in the beginning, which is why Dr. Kirby Kavanaugh and her team have worked hard to create a dental care experience that’s enjoyable, gentle, and always positive.
From your family’s very first visit, we’ll take our time to introduce them to our kid-friendly environment, taking time to describe the work we do, and helping them feel completely at ease.
Your family’s health and happiness is always important to us!

 

Your Child's Oral Health

Your child ‘s first tooth erupts somewhere between the ages of 6 to 12 months, and the remainder of their 20 primary (or “baby”) teeth should make an appearance by the time they’re three.
Then, as baby teeth begin to fall out over the course of their childhood, permanent teeth will erupt around the age of 6 and continue until the age of 21. By the time your son or daughter’s smile is finished developing, they will have 28 beautiful, permanent teeth (32 with wisdom teeth).

We Want to Instill Oral Health Habits

Toothbrush with pink toothpaste
Throughout the growth of your child’s smile, attending regular check-ups at our Kansas City, MO practice will be an important part of maintaining their oral health. Our team will educate you during those early appointments about how to properly brush and care for little teeth at home, and once your son or daughter is old enough, we’ll teach them through age-appropriate patient instruction.
At Zona Rosa Dental, we want to see children every six months for regular cleanings and checkups so we can treat both signs of decay or damage at the earliest possible stages and keep a close eye on any developmental concerns which may require further intervention.
Additional treatment options are also available for young patients who may need a little extra protection for their smile. Fluoride treatments can strengthen their enamel against the threat of cavities, and dental sealants will guard those tricky, hard-to-reach grooves in certain teeth from bacteria and potentially damaging food particles.
Not only do we want the parents to smile after seeing the dentist we care about the kids too!

Sports Guards for Athletics

A sports guard is an ideal oral health choice for athletes who regularly play baseball, football, soccer, basketball, or other sports where contact is possible. These appliances can help cushion blows to the face, minimizing damage to the teeth, lips, jaw, and tongue. Studies have shown that wearing a sports guard can even minimize the severity of concussions.
We can create a customized mouth guard for you or you r child right here at Zona Rosa Dental that’s comfortable and effective, allowing our patients to keep their head in the game.
