Preventative Pediatric Dental Services in Pearl River NY

People often ask Dr. Rothschild and his staff when children should have their first trip to the dentist….the answer is when their first teeth start popping through their gums. These early visits to the dentist help children get used to the different sights and sounds of a dental office when they are at the height of curiosity, which often prevents them from being afraid when they need to have their teeth cleaned later.

Even though children lose their first set of teeth, routine exams are critical to ensure their adult teeth are healthy. Pediatric dental imagery, such as x-rays, allows Dr. Rothschild see the adult teeth as they develop in the jaw. This provides the opportunity for early interventions if any he identifies any problems. Since the milk teeth serve as “placeholders” for adult teeth, regular cleanings significantly reduces the chance for cavities to develop in your child’s first set of teeth
