Dr. Schoenenberger’s friendly and caring manner puts
children of any age at ease, so they can enjoy their visits
to Sheboygan Dental. He uses modern procedures that are
easier and result in less time in the dental chair. Our team
teaches and encourages young patients proper dental hygiene
for a lifetime of healthy teeth. We are pleased to see them
for their first visit at three years old and enjoy their
return visits as they grow and change each year.
No More Dental Fears
We want all children to forget their fears of dental work as
a child and never have them return as an adult. Parents are
pleased that we are accomplishing this goal. Our office is a
happy place to visit, and all services are delivered in a
thoughtful, compassionate manner. Whether your child is
scared or simply very active, we can help to make their
dental visits enjoyable.
Care is a Part of Your Child’s Health Care
We teach your children the importance of brushing and
flossing at an early age in an environment that is
comfortable and fun for them. It is important for parents to
realize that children’s teeth are more susceptible to
cavities than adults’ teeth are. Children do not always
clean their teeth properly, so we encourage parents to
participate during daily brushing and flossing to ensure
they are doing a good job.
Also, as children eat more often during the day – a habit
known as grazing – acids are produced more frequently in the
mouth. This can lead to decay if teeth are not properly
cleaned each day. Acids are produced every time food is
consumed. Prolonged exposure to these acids can cause more
cavities. And if teeth are not clean to begin with, the rate
of cavity development will increase even more.
Better daily hygiene, less sugary food choices, and
application of a fluoride varnish will greatly help to
reduce the occurrence of cavities in children’s teeth.
An Easy Way to Help Prevent
Children’s Tooth Decay
even careful brushing doesn’t properly clean the grooves and
contours of teeth. Bacteria and plaque will build up, and
with continual exposure to acids, decay will form. Any
amount of decay is permanent and requires a restoration. But
today, there is an easy way to help teeth stay cavity-free.
It is one application of a mineralizing sealant, and it is
Teeth are thoroughly cleaned and sterilized. One clear coat
of sealant is applied to the entire surface of each molar.
Dr. Shoenenberger then uses a curing light to bond the
coating to the tooth. And that is the whole procedure! It
takes only minutes and there is no pain. Shots or drilling
are not necessary, and the whole tooth remains intact.
We highly recommend this treatment for children’s and
adolescents’ teeth, as it provides the best protection to
reduce the occurrence of cavities throughout their lifetime.
