Dental Services for Children in Brewster, NY

Just like adults, kids need regular teeth cleanings to prevent cavities and other painful problems from occurring. Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic conditions that children have. About one in five children between the ages of 5 and 11 have at least one untreated cavity, and 13% of teenagers between the ages of 12 and 19 have at least one tooth with dental decay. If left untreated, tooth decay can cause pain and infection that may lead to problems with eating, speaking, and the ability to focus on schoolwork.

Fortunately, tooth decay is preventable. Our pediatric dentists in Brewster look forward to working with you to keep your child’s smile healthy and beautiful. Here are some of the dental treatments for children that we provide:

Teeth Cleanings for Children:

Our experienced pediatric dentists and hygienists will gently remove cavity-causing plaque from your child’s teeth.

Topical Fluoride:

Fluoride is often called nature’s cavity fighter. It strengthens the surface of teeth to make them more resistant to decay.

Dental Sealants:

Our pediatric dentist in Brewster can apply a thin plastic resin coating on your child’s back teeth. That seals the little grooves on the chewing surfaces of those teeth so food particles and bacteria can’t get trapped. A sealed tooth is far less likely to develop a cavity, which can save your child from developing a toothache and needing more extensive treatment like a filling or crown. Best of all, sealants are painless, and they can last for years.

Fillings:

Our pediatric dentists offer tooth-colored fillings to repair damage caused by a cavity.

Bonding:

Tooth-colored bonding materials can repair chips and small fractures to front teeth.

Root Canal Treatment:

Just like adults, some children may need a root canal to save a tooth that has been damaged by an injury or severe decay. Often called a “baby root canal,” the formal name for removing the entire pulp material from a baby tooth is called a pulpectomy. If just the top part of the pulp chamber is removed, but not the nerves in the roots, then it’s called a pulpotomy. After either procedure, the pediatric dentist will place a crown on top of the tooth to protect it.

Pediatric Crowns:

If your child has a cavity too large for a filling, or has had a tooth break or crack, then our pediatric dentist can place a tooth-colored crown to protect the tooth. The dentist will also place a crown on teeth that have been saved through root canal treatment. We typically don’t want to pull a baby tooth unless it’s near the time it would fall out naturally.

Space Maintainers:

If your child loses a baby tooth due to an accident, dental decay, or another reason, then our pediatric dentist may place a space maintainer in the child’s mouth. Space maintainers keep the space open so the permanent tooth has room to come in. They can also help with pre-orthodontic treatment.

Mouthguards:

If your child plays sports, then a mouthguard is highly recommended. The American Dental Association recommends people wear mouthguards for dozens of athletic activities including basketball, football, boxing, skateboarding, martial arts, field hockey, gymnastics, and wrestling. While you can purchase a boil-and-bite mouthguard at most sports stores, our pediatric dentists can create a custom-made mouthguard that will be more comfortable and better protect your child’s teeth. And while some kids may complain about wearing it, just remind them what it would be like to have a tooth knocked out.

Emergency Dental Services for Children:

If you child chips a tooth, knocks a tooth loose, or knocks a tooth completely out, call our Kids Family Dental office for help. READ MORE
