Kids are notorious for being afraid of the dentist. We know their fears are valid and that’s why we take care to always help your child feel safe and comfortable while they’re here at our children’s dental care Gravesend office. Call today to find out more about our offices and our doctor, Dr. Liana Libin. It’s important to prepare your child before they first see the dentist so that they understand everything that’s going on.
Your child’s first visit for children’s dental care Gravesend may involve a pediatric dental exam and future dental cleaning to promote clean and healthy teeth. Childhood cavities and gum disease can be brought on by having cavities, plaque, bacteria trapped in between the teeth. This can contribute to swollen gums and premature tooth decay. Regular pediatric dental exams and cleanings can help to ward off cavities and other dental hygiene issues that kids commonly suffer from. Dental sealants can also go a long way in preventing dental problems.
Sealants help to prevent cavities. Cavities are caused by buildup of food and debris that cause bacteria which form plaque and tartar over the teeth, also resulting in tooth decay. Cavities can be treated with fillings, which are made from composite materials and which fill the holes created in the teeth. Cavities can be prevented by brushing and flossing daily and following a good oral health care regimen as well as annual cleanings at our office. Our children’s dental care Gravesend office is open Monday through Saturday to best accommodate your child’s dental needs. Call us today and experience the difference with our attentive staff and doctors and patient manner. Your child will be happy to come back and see us once they feel safe and comfortable here and they’re able to relax while they’re having their dental work done.
