Our pediatric dentistry at Aesthetic Dental Center of Rockland County caters to children’s unique dental needs, considering factors like adult tooth eruption and anxiety during visits. We work closely with parents to guide and support children for a stress-free dental journey and lifelong oral health habits.

Baby teeth play a crucial role in oral development, despite the misconception that they are not important since they will be replaced by adult teeth. Premature loss of baby teeth can lead to issues such as teeth shifting and inadequate space for permanent teeth to erupt properly. Additionally, tooth decay in baby teeth can cause discomfort and impose financial burdens for your child's dental care. It is essential to prioritize the health and maintenance of baby teeth to ensure proper oral development and prevent future complications.

Tooth decay in infants can result from bacterial infection in the mouth, where acid-producing bacteria erode the tooth enamel. Another common cause is prolonged exposure to sugary foods or drinks, especially when a child is allowed to sleep with a bottle containing formula, juice, or milk. To prevent tooth decay, it is important to limit sugary beverages and serve milk only during mealtime rather than allowing continuous consumption throughout the day or during nap time. By adopting these preventive measures, you can help safeguard your child's oral health and reduce the risk of tooth decay.

In addition to practicing good oral hygiene at home, such as regular brushing and flossing, regular dental cleanings are essential for preventing tooth decay in children. During a dental cleaning, the pediatric dentist conducts a visual examination of your child's mouth and teeth, addressing any potential concerns related to tooth lesions. The teeth are then thoroughly cleaned to remove plaque and tartar buildup. Additionally, meticulous flossing is performed to eliminate any food particles or debris between the teeth, ensuring comprehensive oral hygiene for your child.

Fluoride plays a crucial role in preventing cavities by aiding in the remineralization of tooth enamel. Natural sources of fluoride include certain bodies of water, while fluoride is also commonly found in tap water. Additionally, fluoride can be obtained through various products such as toothpaste, certain bottled water, and many mouth rinses, providing an extra layer of protection against cavities.

Monitoring your child's oral development from an early age is essential. Our team is trained to detect issues such as malocclusion (crooked or crowded bite) and can intervene early to guide emerging teeth. By intercepting orthodontic concerns at an early stage, we can prevent the need for more extensive treatment in the future. During your child's regular dental examinations, we will assess the progress of their bite and jaw development, allowing us to identify any potential problems. This proactive approach helps prevent costly and extensive orthodontic procedures later on.
