Quality dental care during childhood is important for a lifetime of healthy smiles, but it’s not always easy to get kids excited about going to the dentist. Dr. Kunjumon is a proud father to two young daughters, so he understands that children have their own unique needs for dental treatment and communication. He and our entire team take great care to make our League city dental office a fun and welcoming place for kids of all ages.
Schedule your child’s dental appointment today!
We’re on a mission to prove that dental visits don’t have to be scary for kids—in fact, they can even be fun! While you check in at our reception desk, your child can explore our play area filled with toys, books, and video games. Our treatment rooms are just as kid-friendly, with pillows and blankets to keep your child cozy and TVs on the ceiling to make dental checkups fly by. The best part? Kids get to pick a surprise from our treasure chest at the end of each visit! We want every child’s visits to Touchstone Dentistry to be positive and stress-free, because these experiences can shape a child’s attitude toward dentistry for many years to come.
Prevention is the foundation of comprehensive care, especially for children. Routine checkups and cleanings starting at your child’s first birthday are the best way for Dr. Kunjumon to catch problems like tooth decay and improper tooth eruption as early as possible. He will always address any issues with exceptional kindness, patience, and understanding.
Kids’ dental visits are a family affair, so we welcome parents back into the treatment area. After the visit is over, Dr. Kunjumon will thoroughly discuss his findings with you, along with his recommendations for treatment and long-term maintenance.
The deep grooves in your child’s back molars are great for chewing, but also great at collecting food particles and bacteria. Most cavities occur in these back teeth, because even proper brushing and flossing can sometimes leave a little plaque behind.
Dental sealants are one of the most effective ways to prevent cavities, and League City dentist Dr. Agee Kunjumon can apply them in a matter of minutes. He simply brushes on a thin layer of biocompatible plastic to the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth and cures it with a special light—no shots, no drilling!
Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and makes it more resistant to decay. Some studies have even shown fluoride to help reverse the early signs of tooth decay!
Most kids’ toothpastes on the market include a safe and effective amount of fluoride, and it’s present in some public water systems as well. Just in case, Dr. Kunjumon offers a concentrated fluoride rinse after your child’s cleaning to give his or her teeth some extra "armor" against plaque.
Kids and teens who participate in contact sports and high-impact recreational activities are at an increased risk of dental injury. Athletic mouthguards not only protect your child’s teeth and soft tissues injury, but they also help prevent more serious head trauma like concussions.
Tooth-colored fillings require less preparation than traditional silver fillings, which means fewer shots and less drilling. They’re also very natural-looking, so you won’t even notice a difference in the appearance of your child’s smile.
Sometimes called “baby teeth crowns,” these pre-made restorations are used to cover or “cap” a tooth that’s too small or too damaged for a filling. We place both white and stainless steel (silver) crowns, depending on where the damaged tooth is located. For back teeth, we usually place durable steel crowns; in the front, we try to place more natural-looking white crowns whenever possible.
Accidents happen, especially with inquisitive and rambunctious kids. If your child experiences a dental emergency, call our League City dental office immediately! We’ll talk you through the situation and schedule a same-day emergency visit if necessary.
