Pediatric Dentistry

Your child’s first dental visit is very important to us. We love making this a fun and easy experience for Mom, Dad, and the kids. One of the greatest compliments we receive is when parents tell us “My kids love your office!” By teaching children how to properly care for their teeth at an early age, we help them develop good habits and maintain their health for years to come.

As an extra perk we have multiple TVs in our dental rooms, including one on the ceiling! Kids love watching their favorite shows and it helps them feel relaxed. At the end of their appointment, kids get to pick out toys from our toy dispensers. Our dentist office in Parker CO can be a FUN place — just ask our pediatric patients!

When to take your child to the dentist

The ADA recommends that children see the dentist every six months, starting when their first tooth erupts or when they turn one year old, whichever comes first.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are baby teeth really that important?

Primary teeth, sometimes known as “baby teeth,” are vital for a variety of reasons. They not only assist youngsters in speaking properly and chewing naturally, but they also aid in the formation of a route for permanent teeth to follow when they are ready to erupt.

What should I do if my child has a toothache?

First, rinse the irritating region with warm salt water and apply a cold compress to the swollen area of the face. Instead of putting aspirin on the child’s teeth or gums, give him or her acetaminophen (e.g., Children’s Tylenol) for discomfort. Finally, make an appointment with your family dentist in Parker CO.

Are Thumbsucking and pacificers a bad habit?

Thumb and pacifier sucking behaviors are normally only a concern if they persist over an extended length of time. Most children will stop sucking their thumbs or fingers on their own, but if they are still sucking their thumbs or fingers after the age of three, your pediatric dentist may suggest a mouth appliance.

How do dental sealants help my child?

Sealants function by filling up crevasses on the chewing surfaces of the teeth. This prevents food particles from becoming trapped in the teeth and creating cavities. The application is quick and painless, and it can successfully preserve teeth for many years.
