Importance Of Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is a branch of study that specifically focuses on the dental care of children. Your Chicago and Glenview dentists make it their goal to ensure that your children have healthy teeth for proper development and function. As soon as the baby teeth fall out, we need to monitor the growth of your child’s mouth, teeth, and jaw as he or she grows into an adult. It important that your child brushes their teeth and practices good oral care habits to avoid issues such as decay when their permanent teeth grow in. Some common concerns that your pediatric dentists may have are:

  • Cavities from sweets and lack of brushing
  • Your child not getting enough fluoride
  • Tooth Injuries caused from playing sports
  • Dealing with bad habits such as tongue thrusting or thumb sucking
