Healthy kids are happy kids. You can help your kids avoid pain and suffering by teaching them good dental habits. They’ll carry those habits well into their adult years. Self-care dental habits include brushing and flossing daily, regular visits to the pediatric dentist, and early intervention when problems do arise. Introduce your children to the best pediatric dentistry team in and around Brooklyn, so they won’t fear the dentist. Instead, they’ll always know where to go when they have dental problems.
With the right kind of preparation, your child’s first dental trip can be fun and adventurous. Kids aren’t born afraid of the dentist, but they pick up that fear from you. They can get anxious when they’re taken by surprise. Give your kids accurate and positive information about your pediatric dentistry team so they know just what they can expect.

Prepare your children for a dental appointment by taking simple steps such as:
Pediatric dentistry experts say that you should bring kids to the dentist before their first birthday. Typically, teeth first erupt around six months. After that first visit, bring kids to the dentist twice a year for cleanings and checkups. Allow them to get fluoride treatments as an added measure to maintain healthy teeth.
Tooth sealants provide another option to seal deep grooves where plaque can build up. Sealants can last for years, and the dentist monitors their stability at the bi-annual visits.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, “Tooth decay (cavities) is an epidemic among our youngest children- an epidemic even worse for children from families struggling with poverty.”
