Cavity Free at Three
Did you know that 40% of all Colorado kindergarteners experience tooth decay? Poor oral health and untreated decay can negatively affect nutrition, academic performance, self-esteem and sleep. The good news is that decay and cavities are 100% preventable.
Mountainland Pediatrics offers the Cavity Free at Three screening procedure for all patients under the age of 3 to get your child’s oral health off to a good start. At every check-up before the age of three, your doctor will examine your child’s teeth, assess problems early, and apply a fluoride varnish to help prevent dental disease.
While doctors still recommend seeing a dentist as soon as the first teeth show up in infants, the Cavity Free at Three screening process is a great tool in aiding children in having the best oral health possible!
