At Cherry Creek Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that early experiences can significantly shape a child’s view of dental care, which is why we strive to make dental cleanings and exams a positive encounter. We are committed to providing a warm, friendly environment where every child feels valued and safe.

Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings and Exams

Regular dental cleanings and exams allow us to keep their teeth sparkling clean and monitor their dental development closely. Starting these visits at an early age promotes healthy habits that can last a lifetime. During a cleaning, our skilled dental hygienists gently remove plaque and tartar that cannot be reached by brushing and flossing alone. This is crucial as it helps prevent cavities, gingivitis, and other potential issues.

What Happens During a Child’s Dental Exam?

When you visit us for your child’s dental exam, Dr. Kojo Danso performs a thorough assessment of your child’s teeth, gums and mouth. We look for any signs of dental problems, such as cavities or developmental anomalies and assess the need for preventive measures like dental sealants or fluoride treatments. Our pediatric dentist and team will also take the time to discuss the growth and development of your child’s teeth, anticipating changes such as the arrival of new teeth and the transition to permanent dentition.

Educating Our Young Patients and Parents

Education is at the heart of what we do. During your visit, we will explain each step of the process to your child in an age-appropriate, engaging way. We aim to demystify dental tools and procedures to alleviate any apprehension. Furthermore, we provide parents with practical advice on how to maintain their child’s oral hygiene effectively at home, discussing techniques for brushing, flossing and the importance of a balanced diet.

Tailored Approach for Each Child

Our approach is highly personalized and we adjust our care to suit the temperament and specific health requirements of each child. Whether your child is a toddler visiting for the first time or a teen preparing for orthodontic treatment, we are here to support their journey to achieving and maintaining excellent oral health.
