Oral Health in Children is Important Too

Posted .

We all know that children often lose their baby teeth. But, did you know that a child’s oral health and those baby teeth are important too? The early years can set up your child’s oral health as they age, which is one of the many reasons to bring a child to a professional pediatric dentist. Here at Magnificent Mile Family Dental, in Chicago, Illinois, we care for your child’s oral health, which is why we are happy to talk to you about pediatric dentistry and how it can help you.

It is important to start by saying pediatric dentistry is mainly for children. To specialize in pediatric dentistry, your dentist, Dr. Olaitan Okediji-Registe had to have extra years of education and practice to specialize in treating children. Having an expert go over your child’s oral health is important, and can help set your child up for positive oral health as they grow into adults.

Because they have intense training with children and every child is different, our dental team has a wide range of treatments to help your child’s oral health and comfort for their special needs. Our team also understands how important it is to keep your child’s oral health in tip-top shape, so they can keep on smiling healthy and bright for years to come.

If you feel it’s time for your children to see a dentist, or have any questions about pediatric dentistry, please feel free to call us at 312-280-0034 to talk with a member of our professional pediatric dental staff. Our team is excited to help you in any way we can, so you can keep your child’s smile healthy and bright.
