Your children depend on you for everything they need to grow up healthy and that includes caring for their precious smiles. From their first baby tooth at a few months old until they get their last molars or “wisdom teeth” in their late teens or early twenties, their smiles are evolving and need specialized care. At Columbine Creek Dentistry, we feel honored to be chosen to care for the young smiles that come into our office. We take this responsibility seriously and give the best possible dental care treatments to those growing smiles.
Children should start getting dental checkups by their first birthday and get at least one per year going forward. During your child’s preventive checkups, our team will monitor their dental health while teaching them the best way to care for their smiles. Learning good oral health habits will help them care for their teeth and understand how important good oral hygiene is to their health and smile.
At Columbine Creek Dentistry, we educate parents and children on how to best prevent tooth decay. Limiting sugar is one way; another is using good oral hygiene to combat the bacteria that lead to cavities. We also offer services like fluoride treatments and sealants that can help protect your child’s teeth from decay. During your child’s regular checkups, we will monitor for signs of decay and offer treatments to give their teeth extra protection.
Starting your child off with good dental habits begins with making them feel comfortable when they come in for their checkups and cleanings. We love kids and have fun making them feel at ease when they are in our office. Our dental team spends the time to get to know each child and make sure they are relaxed. We have a great play area, video games and tasty beverages that kids love, helping make their dental visits fun.
