How healthy is your child’s smile? The only way to know for sure is to bring him or her in to see a dentist for a dental checkup and care. pediatric dentistryKids have special needs when it comes to their teeth, which are still forming and more susceptible to dental diseases. With Dr. Michael Bleyzer in Pomona, Rockland County and Stony Point, NY, you can feel assured that your child’s dental health is in gentle, capable hands.

Dentistry for Children
When you bring your young child to see the dentist, you want her or him to feel very comfortable and relaxed. First impressions really matter—early dental visits could affect how your child feels about the dentist for many years. You also want to feel confident that they will get the full extent of care, including preventive, restorative, and orthodontic treatments. The atmosphere at Dr. Bleyzer’s office is welcoming and assuring. At the first visit, you’ll provide him with a full medical history and discuss your child’s unique dental needs.

Your Child’s Dental Needs
One of the most common dental issues that dentists treat in children is cavities (also called caries). They are small holes in the teeth (usually the molars) that contain decayed matter. If the decay grows and is allowed to reach the inner parts of the tooth, that puts the child at a risk of tooth loss and a painful infection. If at the first checkup there are multiple cavities, your Pomona, Rockland County and Stony Point dentist may recommend that your child have a sealant treatment for cavity prevention in the future. Fluoride, a mineral that solidifies tooth enamel, can also be beneficial. Older children, including preteens and teens, may need orthodontic care to improve the positioning of their bite and their teeth in general.

A Team Effort
Keeping your child’s teeth healthy is a team effort that includes you and your pediatric dentist. After you see your dentist for a checkup, be sure to reinforce the need for regular dental maintenance with your child at home. Also, be an example for your child by taking care of your own teeth and seeing the dentist promptly for necessary treatments.

Time for a Visit?
If your child hasn’t seen a dentist in a while, now is the time to come in for treatment. Dr. Blezyer is committed to giving you and your young one a pleasant and stress-free experience.
