What should I expect during pediatric dentistry visits?

During pediatric dental visits at Flatlands Dental Care, experienced providers show your child to a dental chair and take painless X-rays if needed. They also review your child’s health history. They ask about their usual oral hygiene habits and whether or not they have symptoms of tooth decay or gum disease.

A hygenist gently cleans your child's teeth to remove plaque and tartar, flosses the teeth, and examines them for possible tooth decay. 

A dentist reviews the results of the dental X-rays and offers restorative treatments, if needed, for tooth decay, tooth damage, or gum disease. They let you know if your child needs additional dental work to perfect their smile and reduce the chance of future problems.

If your child needs orthodontics treatment, the Flatlands Dental Care specialists provide an array of services that improve their bite and the overall position of their teeth. 

Children and teens may need custom-fitted mouthguards to wear while playing contact sports or during sleep to reduce the risk of teeth grinding.

How often should I schedule dental appointments for my child?

You should call the Flatlands Dental Care office any time your child develops tooth pain, has tooth damage, or experiences signs of gum disease. If they have no dental problems, schedule exams every six months for routine dental cleanings and exams.
