There are many things you can count on from our team here at Dr. Casey W. Johnson, Matthew J. Burt, & Paul H. Allen’s dental clinic in Glenwood Springs, Rifle, and Eagle, Colorado. We specialize in developing healthier teeth by cooperating with your child’s mouth size by using smaller, adjusted dental equipment, explicitly designed for their comfortability and creating a less intimidating experience. This equipment provides a comfortable transition from an intimidating experience to one where your child feels comfortable.
Even if there may be some apprehension when you take them for their first dental appointment, we specialize in providing a fun and professional experience for your child. Their first dental exam is vital by the time they turn one-year old, so it’s very important to prevent decay and cavities by bringing them in. Studies have shown children can get their first cavity by the time they reach two years of age if their oral health care is not examined.
Some important topics to discuss when you bring your child to your pediatrician’s office, include factors relating to the risk of cavities such as diet and hygiene practices. You will also review your child’s medical history, preventing accidents to the face or mouth, and stopping bad oral habits (for example, thumb sucking). Your pediatrician will also go over the details of proper oral hygiene care, using fluoride, and the important markers in their dental development over the course of their lifetime.
All Kids Dental Pediatrics & Orthodontics wants to provide the dental care your child needs to have a lifetime of good oral health. Knowing how to properly take care of their will give them a better chance of fighting against cavities, decay, and other infections.
