At Innovative Pediatric Dentistry we provide comprehensive Pediatric Dentistry in Naperville, IL.
This includes preventative services such as cleanings, exams, x-rays, and sealants. Our Pediatric Dentists are also specially trained to restore your child’s teeth with the latest technology, to preserve their precious smiles for years to come.
It is vital to introduce your child to proper oral hygiene as early as possible. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends every child visit the dentist by the age 1. By visiting Naperville Pediatric Dentists at Innovative Pediatric Dentistry, we can help ensure your child will develop healthy dental habits.
Prior to their appointment there are a few steps you can take to make the visit go a smooth as possible. We realize that many adults still have anxiety about seeing the dentist, and sometimes those anxieties can be inadvertently conveyed to your child. Here are a few tips to follow:
• Inform your child about the visit on the same day as the appointment, telling them a tooth doctor will count their teeth and teach them how to take care of them.
• Please refrain from using any words that create anxiety such as drill, hurt, or needle- they are not appropriate for their visit.
• If your child has a special toy or blanket to keep them comfortable, please bring it with. We are happy to check their stuffed animal’s teeth first to help ease their fears. We also have our own “Comfort Buddies” to help them through the visit.
We typically examine infants and toddlers on their parent’s laps in the dental chair. Many of our treatment rooms are in an open environment.
