Our dental care for all ages means that we make it our goal to meet the specific needs of both our adult and pediatric patients. Some aspects of dental care are universal, but there are also important differences. At the office of Linda M. Weinfield DDS, you will always feel that you the attention you’re getting is designed to suit your individual concerns, including those related to age.
Everyone should engage in good oral hygiene at home. Brush twice per day, and floss at bedtime. Children should also brush after meals. Avoiding sugar is essential, since it is the catalyst for the formation of dental plaque, the bacterial film that is behind both cavities and gum disease. All ages benefit from an examination by our family dental care in Oak Lawn two times per year. Exams include both x-rays, for the early detection of cavities, and a teeth cleanings. Your brushing and flossing will not get rid of all the dental plaque, which then hardens into tartar. By regularly eradicating both plaque and tartar, optimal oral wellness is likely to result. Your child will feel comfortable thanks to our dedication to maintaining an office environment that is friendly and welcoming. Our family dental care in Oak Lawn wants to instill positive attitudes about dentistry while your child is still young. Those attitudes will follow him or her into adulthood. Among the other services that we offer are fillings and crowns, bridges and dentures, gum treatment, dental implants, and root canals. Cosmetic treatments include both in-office and take-home teeth whitening, as well as veneers and non-dental cosmetic care like Botox and dermal fillers.
