Children’s teeth need to be taken care of and when it comes to caring for their teeth many parents prefer to bring their children to a dental practice that specializes in pediatric dentistry. Children’s teeth and mouth needs are different from those of an adult and our North Haledon dentist at Wayne Dental Care has been specially trained and has years of experience in dealing with the issues of a child’s mouth and dental care. Our entire team, doctors, assistants, hygienists and office staff has been trained in working with children from infants to young adolescents. Our compassionate crew knows how to make a child feel secure and happy; our practice is dedicated to making the experience in our office stress-free for both the child and parent.
Our North Haledon dentist provides comprehensive dental services including a full range of preventative and restorative services. Our emphasis is on prevention and in addition to regular checkups and cleanings, our team instructs both the parent and the child in the proper way to care for their teeth. We involve the young patient in the care of their teeth and try to get them to be enthusiastic partners in preventing dental issues through daily maintenance to ensure long-lasting oral health. When a problem does arise we alleviate it in a manner that is pain-free through the use of local anesthetics or appropriate medications depending on age and their ability to cooperate.
Our North Haledon dentist recommends that sealants be used to help protect our patients’ young teeth. Sealants are plastics that our doctor will bond onto the grooves and ridges of the chewing surfaces of a young person’s teeth. The plastic helps seal the tops of the teeth against decay. These sealants are most often used on the back teeth where it is often difficult for the youngster to brush thoroughly. Our practice offers advice to our patient parents on a wide array of childhood health topics including thumb sucking, cavity prevention, gum disease prevention, tooth eruption and adolescent oral care among others. If you family includes children bring them into our office so they can start of the road to great dental health for a lifetime.
