East Brunswick Pediatric Dentist
The pediatric dentists in East Brunswick provide a multitude of general dental services for your infants and children. We treat nursing bottle syndrome (a type of tooth decay that babies can get). Your baby’s first visit to a dentist should occur between the ages of 1 and 3. You can help make this visit a pleasant one by following these suggestions:
- Make a morning appointment so that your child won’t be tired or cranky.
- Make sure your child has eaten breakfast and taken any medications before the visit.
- Don’t demonstrate any anxiety. Tell your child that going to the dentist is an enjoyable experience.
Dentistry For Older Children
Here are a few suggestions for older children that come to the pediatric dentist:
- It is important for older children to get x-rays so that the dentist can find out what is happening in parts of the mouth that aren’t visible, like inside the jaw joints and below the gums.
- All kids who play sports should get fittings for mouth guards. Sports injuries are one of the most frequent ways that children’s teeth get damaged.
- It is common for children to get cavities. Our pediatric dentists will determine if your child’s cavities are related to their diet, if they’re bacterial in nature, or both.
- Children can get gum disease from bacteria and poor dental hygiene. We will treat your child and make recommendations about daily flossing and brushing.
- Your child might need braces if they have any of the following warning signs – teeth grinding, protruding teeth, misplaced teeth or excessive crowding, a late or early loss of their baby teeth, any tape of facial imbalance, speech difficulties, excessive mouth breathing, jaws that protrude or shift, or if your child is not able to comfortably close their lips
What To Do In Case of Emergencies
Our staff is on hand for your child whenever emergencies happen. There are a few things you can do to help when an emergency occurs. If a permanent tooth gets knocked out, keep it wet until you can get to the office. If it’s a possibility, place the tooth back in the socket. If this causes too much pain, either place it in a glass of milk or have the child place it between their gums and cheek. If your child gets something stuck in their teeth, gently try to remove the object with some dental floss. Have your child rinse their mouth out with warm water if a bitten lip or tongue or a cracked tooth occurs. Use a cold compress to reduce the swelling until you can get them to the East Brunswick dental office.
