Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

by Lawrence A. Kurzweil, DDS

How early should my child see the dentist?

In order to enjoy good overall and dental health over the lifespan, it’s important for parents to take an active role in their children’s dental care early on. In most cases, it is recommended to take your child for their very first dental visit by his or her first birthday. However, it is a good idea to see a pediatric dentist like Dr. Kurzweil when the first tooth appears.

What types of procedures are offered through pediatric dentistry?

Generally, treatment provided to infants, children, and adolescents closely resemble those offered to adult dentistry patients. However, your pediatric dentist will take into consideration that your child is still developing. Dr. Kurzweil’s pediatric dentistry procedures aim to prevent and/or correct oral health problems in children.

Common treatments provided in pediatric dentistry may include:

  • Dental exams and X-rays
  • Oral hygiene preventative care
  • Oral hygiene education
  • Dental cleaning
  • Cavity treatment
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Stainless steel crowns
  • Extractions
  • Sealants
  • Space maintainers

Your dentist will work closely with you to provide preventative care and resolve any dental issues that affect your child’s health. Call to schedule a pediatric dentistry appointment today.

What can I do at home to improve my child’s oral health?

The parent’s role in child tooth care is incredibly significant. You have the responsibility of making sure preventative care practices introduced in your dentist’s office are carried out at home. To help your child fight gum disease and minimize the likelihood of cavities, be sure that children brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and floss daily to remove plaque that develops between teeth and along the gumline. Your children should also consume a healthy, balanced diet that limits sugary or starchy foods that contribute to tooth decay.

To learn more about how you can help your child maintain a beautiful, healthy smile, call our office today.
