Your first visit to our office will consist of a very thorough comprehensive oral examination. Your exam will include a head and neck exam, oral cancer screening, a complete periodontal (gum) examination, a TMJ analysis, a bite analysis, and a functional and cosmetic evaluation of your teeth. With your consent, we will apply all suitable radiographs and intra-oral photographs when necessary.
After your exam, Dr. Levitin will take unrushed time to review the findings and explain what treatment options can return your smile back to health and beauty. Dr. Levitin will also be able to prescribe what hygiene services are needed to assure a healthy foundation of the gums and supporting bone. Various treatment methods will be available to you, according to your needs, wants and priorities. With the knowledge you will be able to make the best and most informed decisions that are right for you.
For any areas of concern that fall outside our extensive training, we work closely with the finest specialists well versed in all matters of dentistry in the Denver metro area. Based upon your needs, we will suggest one of these specialists for you with the highest certainty they will bestow you the same exceptional measure of care Dr. Levitin and our staff provide.
We are a Family Practice for a reason -- we love children. We also believe good dental care begins at an early age and continues for a lifetime. Like the American Dental Association recommends, we encourage children first be seen around 3 years of age. Bringing your child at this age with you to one of your routine hygiene appointments is a great way to introduce them to our team. They can watch your appointment and then have their own turn by taking a ride in the chair and having their teeth counted. Of course when they are finished they must make a trip to the Treasure Chest for being a big helper. Because we do not force any treatment on children we are seen through their eyes as a different type of doctor and we have created a great patient for life.
The dental needs of children and adolescents are also different than adults. We focus extensively on their growth and development in determining the proper timing if necessary for an orthodontic consult or evaluation of their wisdom teeth. We offer preventive and conservative treatment options such as sealants and fluoride treatments.
