Infant Oral Health Screenings Colorado Springs, CO

As a parent, you want to do everything you can to ensure your child’s health and well-being. One aspect of your child’s health that is often overlooked is their oral health. That’s why infant oral health screenings are so important. They give you the opportunity to catch any potential issues early on, before they become bigger problems.

What are Infant Oral Health Screenings?

Infant oral health screenings are a quick and painless examination of your baby’s mouth. During the screening, a dental hygienist will check for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues. They’ll also examine your child’s jaws, bite, and palate, to ensure that everything is developing normally.

Why are Infant Oral Health Screenings Important?

Cavities and other oral health issues can cause a lot of pain and discomfort for your child. Early detection and treatment can help prevent these problems from becoming more serious. Infant oral health screenings can also help you get a head start on teaching your child healthy oral hygiene habits. By starting early, you can help ensure that your child has a healthy smile for life.

When Should You Get an Infant Oral Health Screening?

It’s recommended that you take your child for their first oral health screening within six months of the eruption of their first tooth, or by their first birthday. From there, it’s important to schedule regular dental check-ups to keep your child’s mouth healthy.

How to Prepare for an Infant Oral Health Screening

There’s not much you need to do to prepare for an infant oral health screening. Just make sure that your baby is well-fed and rested before the appointment. You may also want to bring a pacifier or comfort item, in case your child is a little fussy.

Your baby’s oral health is an important part of their overall health, and infant oral health screenings are a great way to ensure that everything is developing normally. By starting early, you can help prevent future problems and give your child the best possible chance for a healthy smile.

I highly recommend Practice 32. Olivia is very knowledgeable. She has state of the art equipment and takes the time to explain what she is doing, explains how to properly floss and how to take the best care of your teeth. Very different from any other teeth cleaning I've ever experienced! Definitely check out Practice 32!

This was the most pleasant and relaxing dental cleaning that I’ve ever had. Olivia was patient and kind, and explained the process and the equipment. I found it both interesting and informative! I appreciate that she was also able to take X-rays, which can be sent to my new dentist. Olivia will be my hygienist from here on out. Thank you!
