Receiving a dental cleaning and exam here at Camp Little Tooth’s® pediatric dental office every six months is a very important part of achieving and maintaining your child’s dental health.
Good at-home oral hygiene is vital to managing plaque and tartar buildup, but the teeth can’t be thoroughly cleaned without the help of a professional. If you aren’t having your children’s teeth cleaned regularly, it may lead to tooth and gum diseases.
Your child’s dental health is important to us and we want to make sure his or her teeth are kept clean and sparkling! To make an appointment for a pediatric dental cleaning and exam, please don’t hesitate to contact Camp Little Tooth® Pediatric Dentistry here in Lafayette, Colorado.
Children under the age of three have different needs than our older children. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit by age one.
Your little one’s exam will take place in our Lil’ Critter Cabin, specifically designed with their needs in mind. Dr. Rae will examine your child in what is called the knee-to-knee position with both you and Dr. Rae holding your child. This provides comfort for the child to be held in their parent’s lap and allows an opportunity for the parent to learn how to properly brush and care for the teeth. Throughout this part of the exam, Dr. Rae will provide information about your child’s oral health and what to prepare for as your child grows. A thorough exam will be completed followed by a fluoride treatment. Establishing a dental home early is key in the prevention of dental disease and to make sure your child is comfortable in the dental environment.
Camp Little Tooth® offers free first exams and fluoride treatments for children 18 months and younger! For more information please call our pediatric dentist office in Lafayette, CO. Our phone number is 303-604-1000. Our team can’t wait to talk to you!
