Your Child’s First Visit at Windy City Family Dental

Early Age Dental Care

Most people learn how to take care of their teeth at an early age. Many of us remember brushing our teeth beside our parents, being told to brush for a full two minutes, and getting excited whenever we lost a baby tooth.

It’s early learning and routines which build healthy habits that last a lifetime. One of the most important factors in developing good oral health is visiting the dentist regularly. It is recommended that people visit a dentist at least twice a year for checkups. This leads to healthier, cleaner teeth, and also prevents minor issues that arise unexpectedly from getting out of control.

Your Child’s First Visit at A Chicago Family Dentist

Visiting the dentist is important for everyone, but it’s especially important for young kids. This is because children’s teeth, gum tissue, and jaw bones are all still developing. They are often prone to cavities, and still need to develop good dental hygiene practices. Visiting the dentist regularly can help them do that, as well as identify and treat early dental concerns.

At Windy City Family Dental, your child will be welcomed into a relaxed atmosphere and get to meet our trusted staff who are experienced working with children of all ages.

Unfortunately, many kids are fearful of the dentist. A child may have had a bad experience once before, or they might just have heard frightening language associated with the dentist, like “drill” or “needle.”

At Windy City Family Dental, we are here to make every patient feel at ease. Our goal is to help patients maintain beautiful, healthy smiles for their entire lives, and that starts at ages as young as six months old. We know how to speak to children about dental care, answer their questions, and put their fears to rest so that they can enjoy their dental visit.

The Appointment

When you bring your child to Windy City Family Dental, be sure to avoid using words that could scare them. Explain that the exam will be simple, with a doctor taking a look at their teeth, cleaning them, and maybe taking some pictures. Be sure to remain calm before and during the exam. Children can often sense when their parents are nervous, which in turn causes unneeded upset and anxiety in the child.

Finally, talk to your child about oral health. Let them know that to be able to eat, smile, and stay healthy, they need to take care of their teeth. A dentist helps them do that, and they can trust the dentist not to hurt them.
