Pediatric Dentistry

Sometimes kids’ first dental experiences can be nerve-racking.

Even for Brooklyn kids! We’re here to show your little one the dental ropes in a way that’s gentle, educational, and fun!

Helping Children with Oral Hygiene

Learning & Growing Together

You should start an oral hygiene routine with your baby from day one, wiping their gums with a warm wet rag after feeding. And you should bring them in to see us as soon as their first tooth emerges! This will get them comfortable at the dentist from the start, we can assess their growth and development with regular exams and provide gentle cleanings—twice yearly just like you!

Did you know…

  • Tooth decay (dental caries) is the most common childhood disease.
  • Untreated dental problems in baby teeth lead to dental problems in adult teeth, as well as decreased general health and wellness.
  • 51 million school hours are lost each year due to a dental related illness.

We are happy to provide you with the tools, the knowledge, and the support to give your little one a head start to a healthy smile for life.

Preventive Measures

Pediatric dentistry is all about prevention! Then again, kids are just more prone to tooth decay than adults, so we’ve got our work cut out for us! But a healthy, decay-free smile is possible for your little one with a diligent oral hygiene routine, regular teeth cleanings and exams, and a few simple preventive measures, including fluoride and dental sealants.

More about dental sealants

  • Dental sealants are made of a safe dental plastic that’s painted over the surface of molars.
  • Kids should receive sealants on permanent molars as soon as they come in.
  • Filling in the pits and grooves where cavities form, sealants prevent 80% of cavities in back teeth.

Because of sugar and acidity, tiny teeth are under attack 24/7. Fluoride helps remineralize enamel and dental sealants
help keep the bad bugs out!

Are their permanent teeth coming in?

Restoring Tiny Teeth

We definitely do our best to provide thorough education, cleanings and exams, and preventive measures to help your mini-me keep their smile healthy. However, kids are more susceptible to tooth decay than adults, so cavities are pretty common, and while tooth decay is serious, a cavity or two should be no cause for concern—as long as we catch them early!

Restorative materials you can trust

  • Tooth-colored fillings are BPA-free.
  • We offer both porcelain and zirconia crowns.
  • Restorations are strong and durable, built to last.

We can provide durable and natural-looking tooth-colored fillings and crowns to restore both baby teeth and new permanent teeth.

Treat dental problems before they progress.

Tooth decay will only get worse over time if left untreated. If your little one has untreated cavities, you should bring them in to see us right away so we can stop the decay and restore their smile.

Treating Oral Infections

When tooth decay is left untreated, it will only get worse, penetrating deeper into their precious teeth. Eventually it will reach the inner chamber, or even the root of the tooth, causing an infection. If your little one is showing signs of a toothache or infection, you should bring them in right away so we can treat the problem and get them out of pain. We hate to see kids hurting, but we love making them feel better!

Benefits of pulp therapy

  • Get your little one out of pain as soon as possible.
  • Remove the infection before it spreads.
  • Prevent the need for an extraction.

Pediatric root canals are also referred to as pulp therapy, as well as pulpectomies or pulpotomies. Potato, potato, right?

Does your little one have a toothache?

We can assess the situation and determine if they have an infected tooth, and take appropriate measures to get them out of pain and treat the problem. Get in touch with us today to schedule!
