Pediatric, Children’s Dentistry
Children love Upper East Dental Innovations because our doctors make their visit a happy one. We go as slowly as necessary and keep pain at bay (sedation dentistry is available) to ensure that their appointments are pleasant. The dentists at Upper East Dental Innovations know that it is far easier to keep a child’s teeth healthy and free from cavities with regular visits than to try and get them to suffer through a major dental treatment that could have been avoided.
We place special importance in preventing tooth decay, keeping children’s teeth healthy and free from cavities. This often involves treatments to strengthen and protect their teeth. Studies show that poor oral health care in children can lead to impaired school performance and poor social relationships. The dentists at Upper East Dental Innovations advise kids and families on the importance of developing healthy eating habits and other ways to prevent dental disease from occurring. Additionally, we work toward the maintenance of primary teeth (baby teeth) until they are naturally lost. Baby teeth play an important role in permitting children to chew properly, and therefore maintain good nutrition, in speech development, and the maintenance of space for the eventual growth of the permanent teeth.
