Brooklyn, NY Pediatric Dentistry from Shrenik Shah, DMD
Tooth decay is impacting the health of our children; incidences of tooth decay have actually increased in preschool aged children in recent years, contributing to diminished oral health through adolescence and adulthood.
At First Impression Dental, our Brooklyn pediatric dentists are focused on the health and well-being of all our patients. We provide children with a solid foundation in oral health, so they can successfully avoid the setbacks of tooth decay, and enjoy healthy smiles for the rest of their lives.
Why See a Pediatric Dentist?
Children have unique dental care needs. Our pediatric dentist, Dr. Shah, is trained to identify, prevent and treat dental conditions that children commonly encounter as their smiles grow and develop. We remain current on the latest in techniques, procedures and technology, so that we can provide children with the gentle, knowledgeable care they need to have healthy teeth and gums.
Is it Important to Treat My Child’s Baby Teeth?
Baby teeth are essential for speech, biting, chewing, and for future dental health – they serve as place-holders for adult teeth. Damage done to baby teeth can pose problems in later years.
We teach our young patients how to care properly for their teeth, from the correct way to brush and floss, to what to do in case of trauma and emergency. We help your children set the stage for smiles that are free of decay and protect their future, permanent teeth.
What to Expect from Your Child’s Dental Visit
Our doctors and staff know it is crucial to provide a relaxing atmosphere, child-friendly language, and compassionate service in order to build trust and help children feel comfortable while they are under our care. We see our pediatric patients on Thursdays, as well as Sundays, so that we can dedicate this time to their unique needs.
We place emphasis on preventive care, the proper way to care for baby teeth, and guidance for parents. We offer:
• Comprehensive dental exams
• Teeth cleanings
• Fluoride treatment
• Dental sealants
• Advice and tips on tooth and gum health, orthodontics, and problem areas.
Our Brooklyn pediatric dentists can also advise parents on common issues, such as nutrition and diet, bottle rot, thumb sucking, and more. The more our patients know, the stronger their chances are of experiencing good dental health for many years to come.
