We offer general pediatric dentistry, focusing exclusively on children to protect their precious smiles.More Info
Casper Children’s Dentistry offers complete general pediatric dentistry to kids from Casper, Gillette, and surrounding Wyoming communities. We do this because we know that helping kids maintain great oral health is essential to helping them grow into healthy adults. We want to inspire children in our communities to take good care of their smiles throughout their entire lifetimes, and we do this by beginning their care early and making sure they have the resources and education they need to avoid cavities, gum disease, and other serious dental problems.
It is recommended that you bring your child to us for his or her first dental checkup by the age of one, or as soon as that first baby tooth erupts. Some children may need to come in even earlier if you notice any kind of problem. Once your child starts attending general pediatric dentistry checkups and cleanings, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that most children come back to see our pediatric dentist at least twice a year for a check-up. Sometimes, kids need to attend appointments even more frequently. If we notice that your child is suffering from poor oral hygiene, developmental issues, gum disease, or tooth decay, we might want to see him or her even more often than every six months.
Why would you want to bring your child for general pediatric dental care so often? These regular visits are important even for children with excellent oral health because they can greatly increase your child’s chances of remaining cavity free. We offer cavity prevention services, as well as other preventive children’s dental care for problems like teeth grinding. We’ll perform gentle professional pediatric dental cleanings to remove plaque that can cause tooth decay and gum disease. We’ll also provide recommendations for improving oral health and any treatments your child might need.
Our pediatric dentists will monitor your child’s dental health and development, looking out for problems that might need orthodontic attention, too. We can help with growth modification and prevent problems that often occur with early baby tooth loss or other developmental issues.
