Regardless of your age, it’s important to take good care of your dental health. At Highland Smiles, we are happy to provide family dentistry in Denver for people of all ages. From a child’s very first trip to the dentist all the way through adulthood, we want to provide your entire family with good-quality dental care.
Depending on your age, however, dental care might be addressed somewhat differently. Let’s talk about how dental treatment might differ for our patients of all ages.
Preventive Care for Children
As soon as a child’s first tooth erupts, it’s a good time to get them into the dentist. Although an appointment at this early age is primarily about getting them comfortable in the dental chair—as well introducing them to the sights and sounds of the dental office—it’s also a good way for them to become educated about oral health from the start.
This first visit is a good way to establish that dental care is a regular part of your child’s wellness routine. Getting in to the dentist early is also a great way to stay ahead of common dental conditions such as cavities and gum disease.
Because good home care is so important, we will also take the time to educate you on how to help your young child best take care of his or her teeth.
Our teeth should last a lifetime, and getting started early with the dentist is a good way to start an early commitment to good preventive care.
Preventive Care for Adults
If we were lucky enough to establish good oral care habits when we were young, those should carry on through adulthood as we grow up. Our entire staff is well-versed in the latest dental technology and treatments to help ensure your teeth are strong and healthy enough to last your whole life.
If and when dental issues do come up, we provide restorative care to fix small problems. These techniques include tooth-colored fillings and dental crowns. The primary goal is for you to retain the form and function of your teeth, and good quality restorations will serve their purpose for many years with the proper care.
Preventive Care for Older Adults
With older age often come more complicated dental issues. At Highland Smiles, we are aware of the challenges of keeping mouths healthy as our patients age. Adults of all ages should come and see us twice each year for examinations and cleanings—even those who might wear dentures or who have dental implants.
