Children are twice as likely to develop untreated cavities and tooth decay when they come from a low-income family, which is why our dentists accept several different forms of insurance, including Medicaid.

Here are some of the dental services that Kool Smiles dentists can perform when you come into our office on Saturdays:
During a teeth cleaning, your dentist will remove any built-up tartar that can cause tooth decay if left untreated. They will also floss in between your teeth and gums to make sure that any food particles and plaque have been removed, and then apply a fluoride treatment to finish off this cleaning process.
Dental X-rays are typically performed yearly to look for any signs of infection, disease or complications with tooth growth. Children may get X-rays more frequently than adults since it is important for the dentist to track the progress of their tooth development. This dental service will spot any problems before they become too severe and allow the dentist to take preventative measures.
There are several different reasons that a dentist may decide to pull a tooth. If your child is experiencing pain, severe decay or infection, their tooth may need to be removed. Another instance where a tooth extraction is necessary is for wisdom tooth removal. A patient that wants orthodontic treatment may need to get rid of all baby teeth first in order to make room for primary teeth to break through the gums.
When the inside of a tooth is infected or inflamed, a root canal is needed to remove the soft tissue (also called pulp) below the enamel. Once this damaged pulp is removed, the leftover space is then filled and sealed so your tooth can be restored to its normal functional capabilities.
Whether it’s a baby tooth or an adult tooth that is infected, cavities need to be addressed quickly and filled properly in order to prevent the spread of tooth decay. Cavities can be filled with amalgam, composite resin, porcelain or gold, depending on your budget and how you want the filling to appear once it is on your tooth.
The first part of any dental appointment is the examination process. A dentist will start by assessing your child’s overall oral health, and look for any signs of disease, infection, tooth decay, stains or problems with the jaw.
Taking your child to the dentist for regularly scheduled visits is important because it has been proven to provide patients with long-term dental benefits, including:
Every child deserves to receive quality dental care at an affordable price. We are proud to accept Medicaid, TRICARE and a number of other dental insurance plans. If your family is eligible for Medicaid, your children are covered for basic dental services.
You no longer have to search for a dentist near you with Saturday hours. At Kool Smiles, we’re always accepting new patients, six days a week. Call us today at 254-781-0553 to schedule your appointment.
