Pediatric Dentist

Pediatric Dental Treatments girlJust like you take your child to the pediatrician, it’s also important you take your child to a pediatric dentist. Pediatric dentists are dentists who have completed an additional two years of training in diagnosing and treating infants, children, and teenagers. Our Tampa pediatric dentist will not only polish your child’s teeth to keep them healthy, but will look for signs of tooth decay, developmental problems, and alignment issues with either the teeth or jaws.

Pediatric Dental Treatments boyBuilding a solid foundation for good dental hygiene includes education, treatment, prevention, proper diet, and developing good habits for brushing and flossing. At our Coast Dental South Tampa kids dental care office in Tampa, we are specialists in pediatric dentistry, and work hard to ensure that your child’s initial dental experiences are all positive.

Pediatric Dentistry Information for Parents

Kids mouth anatomyAs a parent, it’s important to understand how your child’s mouth and teeth develop. Prior to birth, your child’s first teeth are formed, but hidden beneath the gums. After birth, and over the next two to three years, these teeth, often called baby teeth, appear. Baby teeth function as placeholders and spacers for your child’s permanent teeth. Even though baby teeth are temporary, they can still develop cavities and infection, which can be painful, just like in adults.

Your child’s initial visit to the dentist should occur shortly after the first baby teeth appear. In fact, both the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that children receive oral health risk assessments every six months, starting at the age of one.

What to Expect During Your Visit

During this initial visit examination, your Coast Dental South Tampa pediatric dentist team will:

  • Examine your child’s teeth.
  • Review and provide advice on feeding and dietary considerations.
  • Provide instruction on proper dental hygiene techniques.
  • Provide strategies for correcting ineffective habits that might prove detrimental to your child’s dental health.
  • Clean the teeth and discuss any other treatments or procedures that your child may require.

Every child deserves a good start in life, and establishing good dental hygiene is important in achieving this. Just like adults need regular cleanings to remove plaque and prevent cavities, so do kids. It is important that parents understand the importance of healthy teeth and good dental care, since both are important components in a child’s appearance as well as the child’s ability to eat and speak. To ask questions about dentistry for children in Tampa, FL, or to schedule kids dental care in the 33629 zip code, please call our Coast Dental South Tampa office at (813) 254-6838. We look forward to ensuring your child’s good dental health.

Amazing first visit at my new Dental Office - Coast Dental. Everyone I met was extremely friendly. The Customer Service was excellent. Big shout out to their office manager Courtney, for going above and beyond to help me with scheduling my son appointments. Thank you, Coast Dental Team!

I came here on my boyfriend’s recommendation and I’m glad I did. I feel so grateful to this office after my last dental procedure (done by another dentist at another office) left me with an oversized crown. From the start, Courtney was a sweetheart and took such good care of us. And Dr. Basily is a dentist wizard! She listened to all of my concerns, cast a spell with her drill wand, and now my bite finally feels normal again. She had a gentle hand and really focused on finding all the high points to make sure I no longer felt pain / pressure when biting. Leaving this review say thank you!!

Today was my 3rd cleaning here, and my second time with Jose cleaning my teeth, and I can say with enthusiasm that in my 42 years on earth Jose has given me the finest teeth cleanings of my adult life. I say “adult life” because I can’t remember my teeth cleanings as a child. In all honesty, they are probably the best cleanings of my life. It’s the first time I have ever wanted to return to a specific dental office, and had a specific person clean my teeth. His attention to detail, concern for my teeth and desire to do his job with courtesy, completeness, and professionalism are bar none. Jose Carmona Amador: the best. Five stars for Coast Dental. I am a very happy customer.

I had a very very good experience at this office. Jose was my hygienist and he was very thoughtful. He explained to me clearly and thoroughly what he was doing and why he was doing it. He ensured I felt comfortable and was not in pain during the procedure. I look forward to my following appointments in the future !
