Many parents have questions about how often their children need to visit our office, as well as the type of procedures that are available for children. The experienced team at Cedar Creek Dental in Highland, IL, is ready to answer your questions so your child can maximize their oral health.

Children Need to See the Dentist Early in Life

Getting your child familiar with seeing the dentist helps them understand the importance of taking care of their teeth. Many patients who are afraid of the dentist have anxiety because they didn’t see the dentist as often as they should have when they were children. Cedar Creek Dental takes pride in providing a calming and fun but professional experience so your child feels at ease in our office.

Why Is a Child’s Regular Dental Care Important?

  • Dental care helps detect issues early. Cavities and other issues can affect a child's dental health for years to come. Early detection can prevent expensive dental work down the road and ensure that your child’s teeth remain healthy. Preventive procedures like sealants can reduce the risk of cavities so your child’s adult teeth remain strong.
  • Children need to learn proper brushing and flossing techniques. Children are especially prone to cavities because they are still learning proper brushing and flossing techniques. Our office helps explain to them why it is important and shows them easy to use tools and techniques for taking care of their mouth.
