Pediatric Dentistry in Swansea, IL

Gentle Care for Your Child

Dentistry is important for everyone. But children require special care to get their oral health started on the right track. Pediatric dentistry focuses on treating children from the time their first tooth emerges, which is usually around their first birthday.

Your child’s mouth goes through a lot of changes during their early years, so special attention is required to ensure that both their primary teeth and their adult teeth are growing in properly. This is just one more way our dentists protect your child’s smile at Corner Stone Dental.

Monitoring Growth

Using our advanced diagnostic and imaging equipment, we’ll monitor your child’s dental development. That way, we’re able to anticipate potential issues and actively intervene before they pose a serious threat to your child’s smile.

During regular checkups and cleanings, we’ll work to prevent oral diseases such as tooth decay and gum disease from forming. If you request it, we can apply dental sealants and topical fluoride treatments for extra protection against tooth decay. We also offer strategies to reduce thumbsucking and pacifier use and we’ll be happy to demonstrate effective oral care habits for your child.

When necessary, we can provide early oral treatments such as space maintainers or mouthguards for malocclusion (a bad bite) or bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding). We also treat oral injuries.

Your Child’s Regular Checkups

Visiting Corner Stone Dental for a regular appointment every six months ensures your child will receive the care they need. It will also familiarize them with our dental team. As they start to feel more comfortable with our friendly team members, your child will be less apprehensive about visiting the dentist. Regular appointments also allow us to closely monitor the state of your child’s smile.

When we regularly track your child’s dental progress, we can better prevent painful dental issues. The earlier we discover cavities, poor alignment, or any other type of problem, the easier they are to treat.

We’ll also provide a thorough professional cleaning to prevent cavities and keep your child’s smile feeling fresh.

The Importance of Primary Teeth

A child’s primary teeth will ultimately be replaced by adult teeth, but it’s still important to care for their first set of teeth. This will reduce your child’s chances of getting cavities in their adult teeth and it also helps prevent alignment issues in the future.
