Children's Dentistry – Skokie, IL
Creating Healthy Smile for Your Family
Besides your family’s home oral hygiene habits, their dental health also relies on the care they receive from their dentist. Since there are different age groups in your home, it can often mean visiting different dental offices to ensure everyone’s needs are met. This is an inconvenience in your already busy life. To simplify the services your loved one’s need, it is best to choose a family dentist in Skokie, like Dr. David Schwartz. He provides children’s dentistry to cater to the young smiles in your home.
Enjoy Comfortable Care
Although the primary teeth eventually fall out, they serve an important role in your child’s development while they are in place. They allow them to learn how to chew and speak correctly while also acting as placeholders for the permanent teeth.
While they are only in place for a few years, they need to be cared for properly. In addition to brushing and flossing, they should also see the dentist before their first birthday for a cleaning and checkup. This allows Dr. Schwartz to build a trusted relationship with your child from a young age to encourage stress-free visits over the years. It also allows him to monitor your child’s development to provide quick intervention if a problem arises. This lessens the need for an invasive treatment in the future by keeping their teeth and gums healthy.
Your First Visit
Dr. Schwartz and his team understand children need a little extra care to help them feel at ease during their appointments. We take the time to get to know your child to help them relax and look forward to their appointments.
During their visit, we may take digital x-rays to gain a complete picture into their oral health, even issues that may be brewing beneath the surface. We also gently clean their teeth to remove any areas of plaque and tartar buildup while finishing up with a good polishing. We may recommend additional preventive treatments, like a fluoride varnish or dental sealants to keep their enamel strong and healthy.
Dr. Schwartz conducts a complete examination to assess your child’ teeth and gums. He takes the time to discuss your child’s oral hygiene habits and make recommendations for improvement. He will explain his findings to you and listen to any concerns you have, such as thumb-sucking or nail-biting.
Benefit from Advanced Technology
To promote your child’s comfort, our office embraces the latest technological advancements, like digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and a digital impression system. This allows Dr. Schwartz to create accurate treatment plans that accommodate your child’s needs. Not to mention, they are also more comfortable and provide faster results, so your child spends less time sitting in the dental chair.
