Children’s Dentistry in Merrillville, IN
Usually, the youngest members of our family are the ones wanting to go to the dentist the least. However, dental hygiene is extra important for children. Research has proven time and time again that poor hygiene in young children can contribute to poor oral health later in life. While their “baby teeth” might fall out and be replaced with new and healthy adult teeth, the health of their gums will affect them for the rest of their life.
For these reasons, it’s important that you instill great dental hygiene in your children from a young age by teaching them how to brush, floss, and rinse twice a day. You should also be bringing them in every six months for their check-up and cleaning so that you can be certain that any issues are being caught early on.
How Can a Pediatric Dentist Help My Children?
However, we realize that many children don’t like going to the dentist. They may have a phobia of the office, or just strongly express their complete disinterest in sitting in the office chair or waiting room. We strive to make our dental office as welcoming as possible so that parents, and kids, can get in-and-out with ease. In order to help make sure that your next dental visit has as little hassle as possible, we do everything we can to help keep you and your little ones happy.
Our staff are highly trained and experienced in dealing with younger children. For your convenience, we can also watch your children in the waiting room while you are in the office chair, or we can schedule your appointments so that you and your child can have your cleaning done at the same time. That way, there will be no waiting or very little hassle or fuss.
