Pediatric Dentistry Near Littleton, CO

At Colorado Kids Pediatric Dentistry, we're passionate about helping our patients develop healthy, beautiful smiles that last them a lifetime. We firmly believe that the secret to a great smile is starting early, which is why we're proud to provide high-quality pediatric dental care to patients throughout the Littleton and Highlands Ranch areas. While we ultimately believe that great pediatric dental care is about the people providing it, we're proud to use some of the most advanced dental technology in our office, helping us provide more effective, convenient treatment than ever.

Digital X-rays

For years, x-rays have been the gold standard for dental imaging technology. They let us see the bones and tooth roots lying underneath the soft tissue and gums, giving us a complete picture of what's going on with your child's smile. Modern digital x-rays are a great improvement on this classic technique, using a wireless sensor to let us create x-ray images right on our computer. This significantly speeds up the x-ray process, and because we need a lower intensity of x-rays to create them, digital x-rays are both better for the environment and safer for your child than older methods, cutting radiation exposure by some 90%.

Laser Treatment

We use medical lasers for a wide variety of pediatric dental treatments in our office, giving us the ability to easily, safely, and conveniently shape both soft and hard tissues. Medical lasers use a narrow, concentrated beam of light – the same form of light we see normally – to penetrate tissue, letting us vaporize, remove, or reshape soft and hard tissues. We can use lasers to reshape the gums, remove tooth decay, and correct a variety of other problems, making them a very convenient tool for the office. Laser dental treatment usually also produces less swelling and pain after the treatment, as lasers seal blood vessels and nerve endings, preventing accumulated blood or irritated nerve cells.
