Children’s Dental Care in NYC
It can seem difficult, if not impossible, to find a dentist office that cares for the entire family. Not at Union Square Dental! Our team of professionals loves seeing patients of all ages – including children.
Checkups for Kids
We recommend that all children should have their first oral evaluation by age 1. Pediatricians agree! Early visits help your child to become familiar with our office, and allow us to proactively treat minor concerns before they become larger problems later on.
Depending on your child’s age and comfort level, his or her checkup may consist of services like:
- A thorough exam
- Teeth cleaning
- “Pictures” (x-rays) of their teeth
- Orthodontic evaluations
- Oral hygiene instruction
- Fluoride treatment
Block out cavities by having protective sealants placed over your child’s back teeth. These hard-to-clean grooves and pits are prone to tooth decay, even with the best brushing. Sealants take just a few minutes to complete and can be added onto any visit. We recommend placing them on the permanent molars, which usually erupt around the ages of 6 and 12.
Pediatric Dental Care
Minimally invasive fillings and full coverage crowns protect your child’s future smile by preventing the spread of tooth decay. Our dentists love kids and are happy to provide comprehensive restorative treatments here in our office.
If your child has experienced extensive decay, they may need to have a procedure called a “pulp cap” or “pulp and crown” to preserve their tooth. Most general dental offices are not equipped to provide this service and will refer your child to a pediatric dentist or endodontist. Fortunately for our patients, we have an endodontic specialist here on staff, so there’s no need to travel all over NYC for your child’s care.
