For years, restoring damaged teeth with crowns has taken at least two dental office visits, and several weeks wearing a temporary while a lab milled the permanent crown. Thanks to CEREC same-day crowns, patients don’t have to wait weeks to restore their smiles, and the in-office milling unit may even allow our team to produce better results.

Halloween is just around the corner. The kids are thinking about costumes, trick or treating, and of course, candy and other sweet treats. As their parents, you need to think about how to keep their teeth strong and healthy this Halloween and throughout the season. At Anderson Family Dental in Colorado Springs, CO, children’s dentistry is practiced with equal amounts of competence, care and comfort. And just the right amount of fun is thrown in for good measure.
Children’s Dentistry at Anderson Family Dental
The dentists at Anderson Family Dental, Dr. Erick T. Anderson and Dr. Richard L. Anderson, recommend children begin to see the dentist regularly around the age of three or sooner if you think they’re ready. By the time your children are three years old, most if not all of their baby teeth will have erupted. And yes, it’s important to clean that first little white tooth after feeding. Just wipe with a washcloth or gauze soaked in warm water. As more teeth erupt, you can use a soft child-sized toothbrush and small amount of toothpaste.
When you begin to bring your children to Anderson Family Dental, we’ll first make them feel comfortable in the dentist’s office, thereby setting the foundation for a lifetime of enjoyable dental care. We’ll also show you and your child how to properly brush and floss their teeth. Once baby teeth have been replaced by adult teeth, we’ll apply dental sealants. A thin layer of sealant is applied to the teeth and allowed to harden. Sealants help to protect the teeth against bacteria that cause decay. Likewise, we can use fluoride treatments for added protection.

The Importance of Early Dental Care
When you begin practicing proper oral hygiene with your child when they’re young, you’re paving the way for a future of happy, healthy smiles. In addition to daily tooth brushing at home, it’s important to make sure your tiny tots see us at Anderson Family Dental for regular checkups and cleanings. We may suggest fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel and sealants to help prevent decay caused by foods and drinks. From the moment your child steps through our doors, we will do everything we can to ensure a calm, pleasant experience. After all, we’re all about patient comfort here, no matter how old you are!
While experts recommend that your children make their first trip to the dentist at around the age of three, please feel free to bring your little ones in even earlier if they are comfortable doing so. We’ll even see them as soon as their first baby tooth erupts, assessing their oral development from an early age for the best start possible.
