Your child's first visit

Family & Kids' Dentistry in Arvada, CO - Tom Niemi, DDS

Keep your child's teeth beautiful and healthy with early dental visits!

Dr. Niemi likes to begin seeing children as early as age 3. If you bring your children with you to the office for your own appointments, they will get used to our friendly and caring environment.

For their first visit, they can sit on your lap and watch you get your own teeth cleaned and see it isn't anything to be afraid of. We will show them around and let them get familiar with the office and see that it can be a fun experience.

As tooth decay can start as early as age 2, we recommend a DIAGNOdent exam – which locates small cavities in children's teeth. Along with a cleaning and checkup, a first visit can go far in avoiding any developing problems.

If you have questions or concerns about your child's teeth or gums, please call (720) 330-8606 or click here to request an appointment online.

Orthodontics for kids and teens

Family & Kids' Dentistry in Arvada, CO - Tom Niemi, DDS

Dr. Niemi offers Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces, for teens as young as 12.

Dr. Niemi recommends that you bring your child in around 7 or 8 years old to evaluate your child's jaw and bite to prevent misalignment, crooked teeth and other issues. We use space maintainers to hold the space where teeth have been extracted and expanders to expand the jaw for teeth that are coming in too crowded.

Dr. Niemi uses modern methods of teeth straightening and your child can have straight teeth in just 10-11 months!

Dental sealants prevent cavities

A Dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that is brushed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth in order to protect them from getting cavities. Dr. Niemi recommends this procedure at an early age to prevent cavities from forming. This is a quick and easy procedure that takes just minutes but can last for years, protecting your child's teeth the entire time. As the sealant bonds to the tooth, it serves to protect it from bacteria and plaque or acids that can cause tooth decay.
