Cleaning & Dental Exam in Lake Forest IL
Depending on your child’s age, cleanings include brushing and flossing the teeth and gently polishing them with fluoride toothpaste. During the dental exam, your dentist checks for many things including the strength of the teeth, the health of the gums, how the child bites, and problematic oral conditions.
Our office will educate both our child patients and their parents about the proper methods for caring for little teeth and gums. We help our patients understand how different foods and drinks affect the health of their teeth as well as many other tips that promote optimal oral health.
