The team at Grand Dental – Naperville knows how important it is for kids to feel relaxed in the treatment chair, which is why we make our dental office environment welcoming and fun from the moment they step through our front doors. Our friendly dental team has the patience and experience necessary to ensure your little one’s mouth remains healthy throughout all stages of childhood with children's dentistry in our Naperville, IL dental office.
Our mission is to give your child a positive early dental experience and set them up for a lifetime of healthy smiles. We’ll ensure their comfort as we clean their teeth, identify cavities, and verify that their mouth is developing properly.
We often recommend that these clear, plastic shields be painted over your child’s back teeth to prevent harmful debris from accumulating in the grooves and causing cavities. Once the sealants are placed, they can provide your son or daughter with up to a decade of cavity protection.
This mineral can be found in many foods, oral hygiene products, and most natural water sources. It fortifies your child’s enamel, protecting their teeth from cavities. We can quickly and painlessly apply a topical fluoride gel to their teeth at every visit.
If you have a little athlete in the family, we can make a customized sportsguard that shields your child’s smile during practices or games. What’s more, kids are more likely to wear a custom mouthguard because they fit more comfortably, making it easier to breathe while providing more protection. We can even design them to match their school/team colors!
When the pieces of tissue that connect your child’s lips to their gums or their tongue to the floor of their mouth are excessively large, many issues can occur, such as difficulty latching when breastfeeding. These often-underdiagnosed problems are easily remedied by our team, allowing your little one to enjoy full movement of their tongue and lips.
If your child is suffering from inexplicable tooth pain and sensitivity, the inner chamber of the tooth, called the pulp, could be damaged. Left untreated, the tooth could be prematurely lost. To heal the pain and save their smile, pulp therapy can remove the damaged pulp and rebuild the tooth.
It’s not unusual for kids to feel nervous at their dental appointments, which can make it difficult to administer necessary treatments. At Grand Dental – Naperville, we strive to make every child feel comfortable, but if they need a little extra help, we can safely offer dental sedation. Using mild sedatives, we can help your young one relax during treatment and help them forge a positive relationship with our team members.
