Kids Who Like Dental Visits?

friendly children

At Chesterfield Smile Designs, we are proud of the fact that the majority of our young patients love visiting our office for their checkups, cleanings, and treatments. We believe that maintaining dental health by establishing a relationship with an experienced, friendly dentist is an integral responsibility for parents.

The Oral Health-Physical Health Connection

Optimal physical health for children is impossible without the dental health component. Though this fact seems obvious, cavities in little ones is a national epidemic, but for the most part is preventable. Regular checkups are just as critical as wellness exams and immunizations.

The health of your child’s teeth and gums impacts their speech development, eating habits, academic success, mental health, and social relationships. At Chesterfield Smile Designs, we love working with you and your child to establish habits that ensure a healthy smile for life.

The Good News

Today’s children are far less fearful of the dentist than their grandparents’ generation. Part of the reason is that today’s dental tools have advanced significantly and rarely cause any pain. If you are old enough to remember the whining dental drills of fifty years ago, you probably have a greater appreciation for the technological discoveries that make dental treatment far more pleasant than in years past.

But advanced tools are not the only reason that our youngest patients look forward to dental visits. At Chesterfield Smile Designs, there is a friendly atmosphere that puts patients of all ages at ease. If you are looking for a top dentist for your child, rest assured that our friendly team will make your child feel comfortable during their dental visit.

When Should A Child Have Their First Dental Checkup?

We advise parents to bring their toddler in for a first exam before age one, or when their first tooth erupts. During the initial visit, we can talk about dental treatments such as sealants, fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing techniques, and orthodontics.

Bring Your Questions

We also give moms and dads guidance about thumb-sucking, pacifiers, and other habits that influence dental health. When your child starts participating in sports, let’s talk about custom mouthguards. Remember that if your child suffers a tooth injury, we provide emergency dental care.

In addition to offering children’s dentistry, Chesterfield Smile Designs serves the greater St. Louis area by offering general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
