Healthy Smiles Start Early In Our Elmhurst Dentist Office

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Feb 8, 2016

One of the most important things that we do in our Elmhurst dentist office is provide pediatric dental care to young dental patients. We know that high-quality pediatric dental care can set a person up for dental success down the road.

Here are some of the key reasons that all children should receive regularly scheduled professional dental care:

1. Develop positive dental memories!

We all know that fear and anxiety keep many adults away from the dentist’s office, thus preventing them from getting the treatments that they need. You can help your children avoid this fate by allowing them to develop positive associations with the dentist from a young age.

2. Healthy oral hygiene habits

Our dental team works with our young patients to help them understand why it is important to care for their smiles, and how they can most effectively do this. We teach pediatric patients how to brush and floss correctly—using proper technique will greatly increase the efficacy of your child’s daily oral hygiene routine.

3. Professional preventive treatments

We provide the smile-fortifying treatments that your child needs to stay well. Professional cleanings, for example, minimize the amount of plaque and tartar that can damage your child’s teeth. Additionally, treatments like topical fluoride applications will help your child develop strong and resilient dental enamel.

4. Early intervention

Our dental team can monitor your child’s smile for any signs of emerging structural problems. Early intervention treatments can help your child avoid more serious dental health problems down the road.
