Morris Park Dental’s board-certified pediatric dentists in the Bronx specialize in treating infants, children and teens. Our goal is to help your child maintain a healthy, happy and attractive smile that lasts a lifetime. We pride ourselves on helping parents and children prevent dental problems from arising, protect your children’s overall health, maintain an enjoyable dental environment, and develop a positive outlook towards dental care. We want both you and your child to experience an easy, comfortable, enjoyable, and even educational visit to our office. Our Pediatric Dental Services include:
Our pediatric dentists provide dental exams and x-rays to diagnose cavities and or underlying conditions.They also offer professional cleanings to remove tartar and other foreign substances that attach themselves to the tooth surface. Teeth are polished to remove plaque and stains that regular brushing can’t penetrate.
A sealant is a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces (grooves) of the back teeth (premolars and molars), where four out of five cavities in children are found. This sealant acts as a barrier to food, plaque and acid, thus protecting the decay-prone areas of the teeth.
The American Dental Association recommends fluoride treatments twice a year for your child’s teeth.
Fillings, crowns, extractions and other standard dental services are provided with the utmost care, in a warm and friendly environment.
Our dentists are on call to handle any dental emergency, including: toothache, abscess or infection, swollen mouth or gums, knocked out permanent or baby teeth, and broken, chipped or fractured teeth.
Mouth guards protect not just the teeth, but the lips, cheeks and tongue. They help protect children from such head and neck injuries as concussions and jaw fractures. Increasingly, organized sports are requiring mouth guards to prevent injury to children or athletes. Research shows that most oral injuries occur when athletes are not wearing mouth protection.
Our Pediatric Dentist has special training in treating children and adults with special needs who may require special consideration when receiving dental treatment, due to physical, medical, developmental or cognitive conditions. We believe in a comprehensive team approach to your child’s dental care, which includes consulting with the child’s treating physician and treating all patients with compassion and understanding.
