At Schön Dental in Springfield, IL, we firmly believe that health is beautiful and that good oral hygiene habits should start early in life. Comprehensive dentistry for kids centers on providing top-notch dental care for children from the time the first tooth erupts in infancy through the late teen years. Our Springfield dentists and staff care about all kids and want them to always have a good experience when they visit us.
Dental Care for Kids is the Key to Lifelong Oral Health
Getting kids comfortable with regular dental visits while they are young will help them get used to seeing our dentists and our office. There will be no surprises, which will put them at ease. Children who grow up seeing their dentist regularly in a pleasant environment are more likely to develop good oral hygiene habits at home that last a lifetime. They are also less likely to grow up into adults who are fearful of dentists.
It is important that kids’ primary teeth are kept healthy since their permanent adult teeth are not far behind. Although it’s true that baby teeth will fall out, it’s still important to make sure your child has good oral hygiene habits and dental health early on. This will ensure they build a foundation for a dental routine they will keep their whole life. It can also help you avoid pain and expense as kids can be susceptible to cavities when they don’t establish a good habit of brushing and flossing. By coming into our dentist office regularly, and helping your child establish a good dental routine, you may avoid pain and expense as your child’s mouth matures.
Each child we treat is unique, and some require special accommodations. The staff at our Springfield, IL office uses customized treatment methods based on your child’s specific needs. We consider dental health history, your child’s development stage, dental health concerns, and your parental preferences when creating a dental health plan. We are the right dentist for your kids and the whole family!
