Your children deserve to have a happy, healthy smile. Luckily, pediatric dentistry offers a way to keep your child’s smile healthy as they develop in their early years. Pediatric dentistry has much to offer for young smiles and is happy to help keep their smile healthy.

Our dentists, Drs. Okediji, Bram, and Danesh with Magnificent Mile Family Dental in Chicago, Illinois, understand new parents may have questions about pediatric dentistry, which is why our team is happy to share this list of information on the subject:

-A pediatric dentist is highly trained to improve the oral health of young children so that their smile can be strong for the rest of their life. By caring for their primary teeth, it sets your oral health in motion so that their adult teeth can grow in strong, full and correctly.

-A pediatric dentist has received two to three years of further education beyond dental school. The additional training allows them to provide high-quality treatments for younger individuals. Pediatric dentistry even includes service for special needs patients.

-Is your child at risk for cavities? If so, you’re welcome to bring them to their pediatric dentist for a dental sealant application.

-Common threats to a child’s smile include teething concerns, baby bottle tooth decay, thumb-sucking risks and concerns about the use of pacifiers. For help with a child’s smile, bring them in to see their pediatric dentist before they are one year old.
