Children’s Dentistry – Frisco, CO
Setting the Foundation for Healthy Smiles
At Ten Mile Dental, Dr. Amedro wholeheartedly believes that every child should have a healthy smile right from the beginning. Unfortunately, kids are often susceptible to some of the same oral health problems that impact adults. That’s why we offer kid-friendly dental care that’s personalized to meet their unique needs and designed to stop oral health problems from developing in the first place. Just two routine checkups and cleanings a year will go a long way in setting the foundation for healthy smiles. If you’re looking for a children’s dentist in Frisco, CO, give us a call today!
The Importance of Good Dental Hygiene Early On
Most children should attend their first dental checkup by the age of one, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. This visit will give Dr. Amedro an opportunity to ensure your child’s teeth and jaw are healthy and developing as they should. If there are any troubling signs, such as baby bottle tooth decay or excessive thumb-sucking, it will be much easier to address these issues sooner rather than later.
Additionally, taking your son or daughter to regular dental checkups from an early age will set them up for a lifetime of good oral health. Not only will they learn the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums, but they will also be more comfortable in the dental chair, making them more likely to seek out dental care on their own when they grow up. Your dentist can also provide you with personalized oral hygiene tips, such as which products to use and advice for making flossing easier.
Quality Care from a Family Dentist
We all lead busy lives these days, but one way to make things a little less hectic is to see a family dentist. Because we offer services that cater adults as well as kids, we make it easier for the entire family to get the care they need under one roof. No longer do you have to drive all the way across town to ensure everyone’s dental health needs are met. You can even schedule the whole family’s dental checkups on one day to make it extra convenient.
Kid-Friendly Care for All Ages
Whether your little one is just growing their first teeth or is headed off to college soon, we provide a vast array of services to meet all of their smile needs, such as:
The teeth in the back of the mouth, called molars, contain pits and grooves so deep that toothbrush bristles often can’t adequately clean them. This is often the case in younger patients, whose arms may not yet be long enough to reach these teeth. As a result, the molars are often more vulnerable to decay. Sealants are thin, clear coatings that we paint over the molars to seal out cavity-causing bacteria.
Also known as “nature’s cavity fighter,” fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and prevents decay. Most kids get plenty of fluoride from their toothpaste and tap water, but we can reduce their risk of developing cavities in between appointments by quickly and painlessly applying a fluoride varnish to their teeth during their cleaning.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
The wisdom teeth, also called the third molars, emerge in the very back of the mouth, often between the ages of 15 and 25. Many people simply don’t have room for them in their mouth, so they can result in problems like crowding, pain, and infection. We’ll extract them as smoothly as painlessly as possible.
