Cavities aren’t uncommon in children. If your child has a cavity and your family isn’t insured, Kool Smiles can help. Kool Smiles Kids Club has a network of partner dentists who aim to provide high-quality, affordable dental care for all children, regardless of insurance status.
An untreated cavity can lead to serious oral health issues, like abscesses, severe toothaches, infections, and even tooth loss. If you suspect or know that your child has a cavity, there’s no reason to delay treatment. A Kool Smiles partner clinic can work with you to find a payment solution that doesn’t break the bank.
Balancing family finances can be challenging. Kool Smiles Kids Club’s partner dentists offer plenty of payment options to help you manage the cost of your child’s dental care, including:
At Kool Smiles, we believe that a lack of insurance should never keep a child from getting the dental care they need. If there’s no wiggle room in this month’s budget and you’d like to apply for CareCredit to cover the cost of your child’s filling, reach out to your nearest Kool Smiles partner clinic. A team member will be happy to set you on the right track with your CareCredit application.
A cavity is a hole in the tooth’s hard surface. Cavities can’t be brushed away, and they get bigger and bigger over time if left untreated. As a cavity gets bigger and extends deeper into the tooth, it can become quite painful.
Cavities don’t go away on their own, but in the early stages, they’re relatively easy to treat. More advanced cavities may need to be treated with a root canal or tooth extraction.
Treating a cavity is half the battle. In addition to filling your child’s cavity and restoring the tooth, a Kool Smiles partner dentist will take the time to teach your child how to brush and floss effectively to prevent future cavities from forming.
