There is that saying that tells us “the sooner, the better” for an array of different issues, and at Atrium Family Dental in New Lenox, IL we agree. Especially when it comes to pediatric dentistry. The sooner you can introduce your children to the idea of dentistry, the better it will be for everyone involved. Dr. Shane Sudman provides our youngest patients with very positive experiences of children’s dentistry and enables them to get started on a lifetime of good oral health.
In addition to introducing your children to pediatric dentistry at an early point in their life in order to prevent any dental fear or anxiety, there is an actual need for childhood dental care. Parents may mistakenly believe that baby teeth, because they are destined to fall out, are not important. In fact, they are incredibly important and must receive the same kind of cleaning and care as the later adult teeth will receive.
Additionally, baby teeth are prone to cavities too, and when you use our pediatric dentistry services, we can catch problems before they begin and ensure that your child does not have to endure any painful dental problems during their early years. Dr. Sudman is skilled in children’s dentistry and has had years of success in treating even the youngest patients.
As a parent, you may get your general dentistry needs taken care of on a regular basis, but never consider that pediatric dentistry should be on the schedule too. While it is not common for major dental issues to occur with baby teeth, it is best to simply introduce your kids to dental care and especially through the services of a skilled pediatric provider like Dr. Sudman.
Set the stage for a lifetime of good oral health by doing more than setting an example. Your regular checkups can be booked to occur on the same day as your children’s care. Make a point to have your children visit us for a basic checkup and cleaning. They will have a lot of fun and see the dentist’s office as a good thing to look forward to and a reason to practice great oral hygiene.
