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!
Contact your Brooklyn children’s dentists, Drs. Lee, Yoon, or Lorenzo at Park Slope Dental Arts today to check finding a new family dentist off your to-do list! We’re happy to care for every smile in your family.
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.
Contact your Brooklyn kids’ dentists at Park Slope Dental Arts today to protect their new prized possessions before tooth decay has a chance.
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!
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.
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!
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!
