Today it is recommended that children come to our dental practice for their first dental visit when their first tooth erupts, or when they reach one year of age – whichever occurs first. When you bring your child in to see our pediatric dentist in 11104, you can be sure that he or she will have a fun and relaxing time at our dental office.
At Dent-Care Dental, LLC, we know the importance of your child having a stress-free and fun time at our dental practice. For this reason, our entire staff will always go out of their way to make sure that your child feels comfortable during his or her dental visit. Our pediatric dentist in 11104 will provide your child with gentle and thorough dental care. Even if your child only has baby teeth in his or her mouth, it is still important that he or she comes in for periodic dental exams and cleanings. This is because baby teeth play several important roles in your child’s oral development; it is important that the baby teeth are helped to remain healthy and intact for as long as possible. Baby teeth act as placeholders for your child’s corresponding permanent teeth. If a baby tooth falls out prematurely, the permanent tooth may end up erupting in the wrong position. Baby teeth also help your child to speak clearly as well as allow for thorough chewing of food. Dental exams and cleanings will help ensure your child’s excellent oral health. At our office, children can also get fluoride treatments to strengthen their tooth enamel and protect teeth from decay. Dental sealants are also recommended for the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s premolars and molars so that cavities can be prevented in these areas where plaque often becomes trapped in the many pits and grooves in your child’s teeth.
