Decades of experience treating children have trained us in effective communication with them. We make it a point to ensure your child’s positive experience and comfort, and assure him or her throughout the visit.
Our atmosphere is fun, friendly and positive. We understand your child may feel anxious about visiting a dentist at first, and we strive to help your child look forward to visiting us.
We are committed to family-centered care and encourage every parent to play an active role in your child’s dental health so that he or she understands and practices good oral habits from young.
Our clinic is equipped with advanced technology such as digital imaging, 3D printing, computer assisted system CALAJECT™ (to deliver painless injections), and more.
Our certified dentists are experts at handling growing teeth, and offer personalized care options for infants, toddlers, school-aged children and teenagers.
Your child should visit a dentist by his first birthday or by the time his first tooth emerges. Ideally, parents should take their children to the dentist every 6 months (if there is no problem or emergency). Scheduled visits are essential to the health of your child and their developing teeth.
By seeing a dentist, you ensure that your child is protected from tooth decay and other diseases. You also build up a comfort level for your child and let him/her know that a dentist visit is not supposed to be a scary experience, this trains them for future preventive care. At Kong Dental, we are here to make the dentist experience fun, positive and convenient for every child!
At Kong Dental, we focus on preventative dental care for children. Simply preventing dental issues from ever occurring ensures that invasive treatments will not be necessary. This helps your child develop a positive relationship with our dentists that will shape positive oral habits for the rest of his/her life.
Our dentist will evaluate your child’s teeth, gums, bite and the surrounding tissues for any signs of dental problems. Regular oral exams, performed at least every six months, ensure that dental problems can be timely resolved before they have a chance to escalate.
During teeth cleaning, our dentist very gently scrapes and removes the excess plaque and tartar off your child’s teeth, including hard to reach areas. Finally, he/she rinses their mouth and have a fluoride polish applied to their teeth.
Regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings prevent harmful decay-causing bacteria from building up within plaque and tartar deposits.
Dental Sealants/ Topical Flouride:
Sealants and fluoride are quick and easy protective measures that can save your little one from cavities. Sealants are thin, clear coatings that protect hard-to-clean areas from the sugars that cause tooth decay. Topical flouride application on your little one's teeth attracts other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel and ward off cavities.
Each time your child visits our clinic, our friendly staff will show them proper brushing and flossing techniques and teach them the importance of oral hygiene. This is important so they can develop positive oral habits.
Your child should ideally have their first orthodontic appointment at the age of 7. Although orthodontic appliances may not be used at this time, our dentists will be able to identify possible issues and apply preventative measures.
Our orthodontic services include but are not limited to diagnosis, prevention and correction of dispositioned teeth.
Your child may need orthodontic treatment if they have overlapping teeth, difficulty speaking or chewing, teeth grinding or clenching, facial asymmetry, or jaws that are misaligned and etc.
The only way to know for sure is to schedule an orthodontic evaluation with a dentist for your child, and you're welcome to contact our clinic.
Our clinic offers Myobrace as one of our solutions. Myobrace System is a no-braces approach to straightening your teeth and jaws. Treatment with myofunctional orthodontic techniques uses light, intermittent forces to align the teeth. This is done through the use of a series of removable dental appliances that are worn for just 1-2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping. Daily use of the Myobrace combined with regular activities (to improve breathing, muscle function and tongue posture) results in straighter teeth and improved function, leading to optimal facial development and a healthier smile.
Children are accident prone and dental injuries are common. It is important to seek dental treatment immediately in the event of a dental emergency.
Dental trauma, chipped or broken tooth, dislodged tooth, sudden and intense toothaches are all examples of dental emergencies.
Delaying dental treatment can cause the problem to progress, putting your child at risk for further complications and more invasive treatment. At Kong Dental, we provide prompt, professional emergency dental care to help your child smile soonest.
We recommend a visit as soon as the first birthday or the first tooth in the mouth. That is the best way to prevent dental problems and make going to the dentist a fun and convenient experience for them.
The general rule is 6 months if there are no dental problems and/or emergencies. If there are, the obvious answer is to immediately visit a dentist and solve the problem(s).
You need a toothbrush with very soft bristles and a small head (designed for infants) as the best choice for babies. To further soften the bristles, you could soak them in warm water. You should brush their teeth gently and at least once a day, ideally before bedtime.
Sore gums are something that goes with the normal eruption process. The best way to help your child soothe their discomfort is with the use of a teething biscuit, a piece of toast or a frozen teething ring. There are many medications in the pharmacy that can be rubbed on the gums to alleviate the discomfort.
If your child is sucking his/her thumb or pacifier, it can lead to crowded teeth, crooked teeth or bite problems. If your child is still sucking their thumbs or fingers when their teeth erupt, a mouth appliance may be recommended from your pediatric dentist.
