Rare is the child who looks forward to visiting any healthcare provider, but here at Cosmopolitan Dental, we come pretty close to making that a reality. Our office atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and our Grand Central pediatric dentist is committed to gentle, patient, expert care. Examinations every six months are key to promoting and maintaining a high degree of oral health, which is as important, or more so, for your child as it is for you.
If this is your child’s first time here, we make sure that there is time for him or her to become acquainted with our office, or staff, and most important of all, our Grand Central pediatric dentist. When things are familiar, they don’t seem scary or intimidating, which is why we explain what the equipment and instruments are used for. Otherwise, a pediatric dental exam is very much like one for an adult. There is a physical checkup and visual inspection of your child’s teeth and gums to determine if she or he has any loose teeth or fillings, and also to find signs of gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal disease. Imaging is done to get a close-up look at what is going on in your child’s teeth. Are there indications of tooth decay? If one or more cavities have formed, it is important to fill them before they grow larger and put him or her in danger of a toothache or infection. The session is completed with a teeth cleaning, a cornerstone of preventive care. The effects of gingivitis are reversed with this treatment, and any tartar buildup is eliminated, too.
Our Grand Central pediatric dentist is dedicated to keeping your child free of cavities and gum disease to the greatest extent possible. So contact us right now and schedule an appointment for her or him.
