Staggering facts from the CDC state that 19% of children ages 2 to 19 in the United States have untreated cavities. No child should have untreated cavities. The ADA and CDC have both linked untreated dental problems in children to increased cases of sinus infections and colds. Your child's oral health extends past their teeth. A child's well-being can be affected by poor oral hygiene.
Many children already have a fear of coming to the dentist. Wouldn't you like to make sure that your child is happy to hop into the dentist's chair? They will be when they come to the Pediatric Dentist in Fishkill, NY.
Fishkill Pediatric Dentist
This Fishkill Pediatric Dentist offers a variety of dental care for your child or children. First and foremost, we offer Cleaning and prevention.
Cleaning & Prevention
Your child's first visit will include:
- Examination of the lips, neck, face, throat and gums for signs of oral cancer
- Check for Periodontal disease
- Check for Tooth decay
- Evaluation of current fillings or caps.
Once we have completed the initial screening and evaluation, our cheerful hygienists will move on to cleaning your child's teeth. This professional cleaning begins with removal of tartar and plaque. The difference between tartar and plaque is that tartar is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for too long. The only way to remove tartar is by the use of scaling tools, whether those are ultrasonic or standard depends on the level of build-up. Your hygienist will then move on to polishing your child's teeth. We have a wide variety of flavors to choose from. We finish each cleaning with a rinse, then floss. You can rest assured that our registered dental assistants will have your child's teeth ready for their dental examination.
Your Fishkill Pediatric Dentist may suggest that you have sealants placed on your child's teeth to help prevent tooth decay. Sealants are a fast, painless way to reduce your child's risk of getting a cavity. Thin pieces of plastic are molded to the chewing surfaces of your child's teeth, sealing them from food particles and plaque. Of course if your child already has a cavity, the Fishkill Pediatric Dentist is able to provide fillings. You may choose from standard or composite fillings. Please see the Cosmetic Dentistry page for more information on composite fillings.
