Which preventive services will be the best for my child?

Children should visit their primary dental care provider for routine cleanings and dental exams just as often as adults, or at least twice per year. This allows our team to remove built up plaque and tartar and examine their teeth and gums for signs of issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and dental trauma. Our office also provides additional preventive treatment options that are designed to protect teeth and keep your child’s smile healthy and happy.

Our preventive services include:

  • Fluoride Treatments
  • Dental Sealants
  • Custom Nightguards
  • Space Maintainers

What can I do at home to help my child maintain a healthy smile?

While scheduling regular preventive dental treatments with our team is important, establishing a thorough at-home oral care routine is essential for maintaining clean and healthy teeth and gums. We recommend that parents brush and floss their teeth with their kids twice per day to model healthy habits and make oral care a fun family activity. Putting on happy songs, using sticker charts, and collecting dental-related books and toys can also help make dental care less of a chore and more of a positive experience for younger children.

Is preventive dental care expensive?

Investing in preventive dental services is a great way to help your child maintain a healthy smile now and for many years to come. Not only does preventive dentistry help children maintain positive oral health, but it is also far more cost-effective in the long run.

Our office is insurance-friendly, and we also offer an in-house membership plan that includes cleanings, exams, and fluoride treatments. Should you have any questions or concerns about financing your child’s care, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team. We are committed to helping patients in and around Oak Park receive the exceptional preventive care that they need and deserve.
