Naperville parents, your child’s oral health is our top priority. As pediatric dentists, Drs. Primiano and Mach are qualified to provide the necessary dental care for your child as they grow and develop. We want to ensure that your child has a healthy smile for life, and our practice is dedicated to providing quality pediatric dentistry services.
A Healthy Smile for Life
Many parents may not know it, but it’s essential to get started on your child’s dental care earlier than you might think. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children have their first dental visit within six months of getting their first tooth or by their first birthday.
Early dental visits are important because they allow us to get to know your child and provide them with the best possible care as their teeth grow and develop. We can also help you learn about ways to care for your child’s teeth at home and spot any potential problems early on.
We offer a wide range of pediatric dental services, including:
Preventive Care: Includes regular checkups and cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants to help protect your child’s teeth from cavities.
Restorative Care: If your child does develop a cavity, we offer fillings, crowns, and other treatments to restore their smile.
Orthodontic Care: We offer early interceptive treatment to help guide your child’s teeth into the correct position and minimize the need for braces later on.
Emergency Care: If your child has a dental emergency, we are here to help. We know how to relieve pain, save damaged teeth, and promote excellent oral health. Call us in a dental emergency, and we will help you as soon as possible.
Also, we understand that some children may be anxious about visiting the dentist. Our team is specially trained to work with children and create a comfortable and fun environment that they will enjoy visiting.
Helping Children and Parents Deal With Dental Anxiety
Both parents and children may feel anxious about visiting the dentist – but there’s no need to worry. Our team of friendly and experienced professionals will make sure that your child feels comfortable and safe during their visit. We offer various services tailored specifically for children, so you can be confident that your child is getting the best possible care.
What to Expect at Your Child’s First Dentist Appointment
In most cases, the first dental appointment is simply a way to get your child comfortable with the dentist’s office and establish good oral hygiene habits. The pediatric dentist may also perform the following services:
- Take a thorough medical history.
- Perform a complete examination.
- Check for any signs of tooth decay.
- Assess the child’s risk for future problems.
The dentist may also clean your child’s teeth and provide tips on caring for them at home. They may offer a fluoride treatment to help prevent cavities. If the dentist finds any areas of concern, they may recommend additional treatments or follow-up appointments.
How to Care for Your Child’s Teeth Between Dentist Visits
It’s important to remember that dental care doesn’t stop when you leave the dentist’s office. To maintain healthy teeth and gums, help your child brush and floss twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. And try to help them limit sugary snacks or drinks (although we get it – this can be tough.) And don’t forget to stay current on your child’s dental checkups.
