We welcome patients of all ages to Tribeca North Dentistry, and we work hard to ensure that we offer a fun and comfortable environment for our youngest patients. Our team understands how important it is to give children a strong dental foundation to last a lifetime. Studies show that those who receive regular dental care early in life are less likely to require extensive treatments as they grow older.
Our Pediatric experts offer a wide variety of services including:
The back teeth (molars) tend to have grooves and ridges on their surface. These are prime spots for food debris to become stuck leading to decay. Dental sealants can smooth out the rough surface of the teeth and offer protection against cavities and decay. They are often applied to the permanent molars as soon as they erupt in a child’s mouth.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that makes your child’s teeth less vulnerable to acid attacks caused by plaque, bacteria and sugar and can reverse very early decay. Professional fluoride treatments are quick and painless and can be applied during a regular checkup. These treatments contain a much higher level of fluoride than what is found in over-the-counter toothpaste and mouth rinses.
When your child has a cavity, you can count on the team at Tribeca North Dentistry to provide gentle, professional care. We will do all we can to protect the natural tooth structure and to provide a stress-free experience for your young family members.
Crowns can be used on a child’s tooth for a variety of reasons including extensive decay, fracture or for a tooth that did not develop properly. When a crown is necessary, we will work t ensure your child is comfortable.
Early orthodontic treatment is sometimes necessary to guide the growth of children’s teeth through the use of orthodontic appliances or partial braces. Through phase-one orthodontics, we can create a better environment to facilitate adult teeth as they emerge.
We offer emergency appointments for urgent needs. We can provide immediate attention to help save a tooth, minimize pain and treat infection.
