Creating Healthy Smiles in Lake Zurich

Little boy looking in hand mirrorWe want every child to find the joy and confidence of a healthy smile. Our pediatric dentists and friendly staff are attentive to both the emotional and physical needs of young patients.

Our goal is to create a safe, comfortable and tailored experience for each child and strongly believe that maintaining regular dental visits and good oral health habits can help avoid the need for extensive treatment.

During their visits, your child will not only receive their routine dental exam and cleaning, but we will also provide individualized instruction and education to the children and their parents/caregivers to help facilitate and maintain good oral hygiene habits at home.

By building a relationship with your family and using a Tell-Show-Do approach to dentistry, we’re confident that your child will find their visits with us both comfortable and something they can look forward to.

Enjoy Access to Services Like:

  • Preventive Dentistry — Most common dental problems can be avoided through ongoing maintenance and good oral hygiene. Our team will work with your child to teach proper home care practices and combat disease. We do this through routine exams, gentle cleanings, protective dental sealants (to block out decay) and fluoride treatments at each checkup. If your child is involved in athletics, be sure to ask us about our protective sports mouthguards to reduce the risk of dental injuries and concussions. All of our X-rays are taken using low-radiation digital technology.
  • Restorative Treatments — Combatting tooth decay in primary (baby) teeth leads to healthier permanent (adult) teeth in the future. We offer comprehensive treatments like fillings, crowns and pulp therapy for abscessed teeth. If a tooth needs to be extracted, our space maintainers and tooth guidance options preserve healthy eruption patterns.
  • Oral Surgery — If a baby tooth can’t be restored, extracting it can relieve and prevent the spread of infection. Laser gum surgery is also available to expose teeth that are having trouble erupting on their own.
  • Emergency Care — Dental emergencies are one of the most common injuries that children experience. Whether it’s a chipped tooth from an accidental slip in the bathtub, an injury at a baseball game, an abscessed tooth or infected gums, we have a dentist available 24/7 to answer your questions and concerns. We’re even open on Saturdays.
  • Behavior Management — It’s normal for some children to feel anxious or even scared about something they’re not familiar with (including trips to the dentist). Even if you’ve had a bad experience in the past, our team is committed to ensuring that every visit in our practice is something that your family can look forward to. To help children feel at ease throughout their visits, we offer gentle nitrous oxide analgesia, more commonly known as “laughing gas.”
  • Pediatric Cavity Treatment – Imagine being able to help your child have a cavity-free smile? With Silver diamine fluoride (SDF), you don’t have to imagine. SDF is an antimicrobial topical medicament comprised of silver particles and fluoride ion. The treatment is used to slow down or stop dental caries.

Special Needs, Complex Cases and Sedation

Here at Children’s Dentistry Group, LLC, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to receive quality dental care. Our dentists and clinical staff have the knowledge and training to work closely with you to assess your child’s specific needs to create a treatment and prevention plan personalized to your child.

We understand the challenges of maintaining good oral health habits with dependent special needs children and we are equipped and trained to accommodate your child’s unique needs.

Although most cases can be completed in our practice, there are instances where these situations require a higher level of attention and care. We work closely with parents and caregivers to determine the most appropriate setting and comfort needs for their family’s unique situation.

In instances where your child requires general anesthesia — due to complex procedures, medical concerns, anxiety or special needs — our pediatric dentists have surgery privileges at the Hawthorn Surgery Center with access to sedation specialists and medical staff on site.
