Cooley Smiles offers children's dentistry services for children age three and older. This is one of the many ways that our family dentistry team strives to accommodate the varied needs of your entire family, enabling everyone to receive their dental care in one office.
The dentists at Cooley Smiles have a true passion for working with children and take extra care to ensure their unique needs are met. Bellevue kids dentist Dr. Aaron Cooley, a father of young children himself, has excellent rapport with children, is interested in pediatric dentistry, and understands the unique needs and issues surrounding your children's dental health.
Dr. Aaron and Dr. Brandon will work to make your child's visit to the dentist educational and fun while providing the same exceptional service you have come to expect from our team of family dentists.
The Importance of Primary Teeth
A child's primary teeth perform three basic functions:
||Providing space for permanent teeth
||Guiding permanent teeth into position
||Permitting normal development of the jawbone and surrounding muscle
When not properly tended to, cavities and tooth decay can lead to problems with permanent teeth. In addition, proper examinations from a children's dentist can detect early signs of larger problems with developing teeth that can lead to speech impediments or orthodontic issues.
By bringing your child to the family dentists at Cooley Smiles, you enable us to thoroughly clean and examine these important teeth, treating potential concerns before they become real problems.
Children's Dental Services
In addition to biannual examinations and professional cleanings starting as early as three years old, we recommend that children over the age of five receive special services designed exclusively to assist the healthy development of permanent teeth. These services include fluoride treatments to keep teeth healthy and strong, and tooth sealant treatments that will keep decay from forming cavities on primary teeth.
As your child grows, we continue to offer services geared to meet their unique needs. Your child's adult teeth continue developing well into their mid-to-late teens. As these teeth come in, we will work to keep your child's smile as straight and beautiful as possible. We take great care in examining new teeth as they appear, making sure that they are positioned correctly and will not lead to future problems.
When your teenage child is affected by tooth crowding or crooked teeth, we offer a full range of braces to meet their individual needs and personalities.
