Pediatric Restorative Dentistry

All dental work completed at Palos Pediatric Dentistry is covered by our no-questions-asked one-year warranty.  This means if your child falls again and breaks the same tooth, we will complete any needed repairs to treatment completed in the past year free-of-charge!

Our Warranty on Sealants

We also warranty our sealants for three years, which is important if the tooth erupts farther, or even if your child chips a sealant while chewing on ice!  We know you work hard to provide the best dental care to your kids, and we're always willing to stand behind our work!

Most people, including children, will develop one or more cavities in their lifetime. This dental health issue is typical. However, it is possible to lower your child's risk of decay with excellent oral care habits at home and regular dental visits.

Children may indulge in sweets, and it is difficult or impossible to brush their teeth following every partaking—especially school-aged children. But as a rule, the following tips should help reduce cavities in your child:

  • Take your child to the dentist twice each year for check-ups (and teeth cleanings for older children).
  • Lower their intake of sweets and acidic fruit juices.
  • Assist with brushing until your child is ready to handle the task on his or her own.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Talk to your child's Palos Heights, IL dentist if you notice teeth grinding.

Your child's dentist in Palos Heights can provide fluoride treatments and dental sealants to help combat tooth decay, and teeth cleanings help eliminate the debris and bacteria that lead to tooth decay.

We take the time to meet all of your child's needs!

In addition to trying our best to seat your child on-time, we also spend as much time as needed with each individual child.  In the rare case where we are running late, please know that we always give everyone, including your child, the amount of time that they need at each appointment.  Call us today for more information!
