Healthy Smiles for Kids of All Ages
A common question we get asked regarding pediatric dentistry is, “when should bring in my child in for their first dental cleaning and checkup?”
At 1st Family Dental, we recommend children visit the dentist for the first time around their first birthday, or within six months of receiving their first tooth. This visit is the first step in helping your child get comfortable at the dentist office and start getting used to having their teeth checked.
At 1st Family Dental of Mount Prospect, we enjoy working with children of all ages. Our dental office has rooms specifically designed to help kids relax and enjoy being at the dentist, and our dental team is trained and experienced working with kids of all ages. Whether your child needs a regular dental check-up or dental treatment, oral health education is a critical component of pediatric dentistry. We strive to incorporate teaching techniques and helpful tips to help even our youngest patients get excited about cleaning and caring for their teeth.
Our pediatric dental services include:
- dental exams and x-rays
- root canals for baby teeth (pulpotomies)
- dental sealants
- pediatric orthodontics
- space maintainers
- stainless steel dental crowns
- tooth colored crowns
In addition to the services above, our dental clinic also provides specialized pediatric treatments and services, including nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”, as an available dental sedation and comfort measure for kids. Nitrous Oxide is known as one of the safest and most effective dental sedation techniques for children, and can help kids receive the pediatric dental care they need.
