Dental Sealants

Pits and grooves are normal areas of the chewing surface of teeth which can trap plaque and bacteria that is not cleaned off easily by brushing or rinsing. Sealants are composed of a tough plastic-like material (resin) that sticks to the tooth surface. The sealant is painted onto the pits and grooves to seal out the bacteria and plaque to help avoid cavities. Studies have shown a 50% reduction in the development of new cavities when sealants are used in combination with good oral hygiene.

Periodic Examination

Since the development of cavities can progress rapidly, it is essential for your child’s dentist to perform regular oral check ups. In many cases, cavities can be caught early on, making the repair much easier. The dentists at KCDH will provide a thorough oral review and comprehensive evaluation of your child’s eating and brushing habits.

X-rays

X-rays are a big part of getting a dental examination. They let dentists see parts of the teeth that can’t be seen by the naked eye. The development of permanent teeth can also be checked before they even come in, and, in some cases; x-rays can find cysts and tumors in their early stages. At each exam, one of the dental experts will determine which x-rays, if any, will be used.

Teeth Cleaning and Fluoride Treatment

Once at the dental office, your child will undergo a thorough cleaning of his or her teeth (also called a dental prophylaxis). The staff at KCDH use special instruments and toothbrushes to get teeth super clean and shiny to help your child keep a healthy and beautiful smile.

Space Maintainers

Space maintainers are devices made of acrylic and metal that are designed for keeping space for permanent teeth to come in after premature loss of a “baby” tooth. By placing a space maintainer after premature loss of a baby tooth will give your child a better chance of preventing the orthodontic problems caused by premature tooth loss.

Extractions

Extractions are the last resort for treating a decayed or damaged tooth. Extractions are reserved only for teeth that have been determined to be non-restorable. At the time of the extraction the dentist will evaluate if a space maintainer will be needed for your child.

Pulpotomies

This procedure is recommended when the cavity has extended to the nerve of the baby tooth. After the nerve of the tooth is reached, the infected tissue is removed and place a medicine that will help the remaining nerve tissue heal. These procedures take very little time to complete since they are simpler than the adult version.

Fillings

Once bacteria as been established in the mouth, they will make acidic by-products that form holes (cavities) in the teeth. The weakened tooth structure and bacterial infection needs to be removed to stop the process from developing further. After the infected tooth structure is removed, the dentists at KCDH use only ADA (American Dental Association) approved materials.

Kids Dentist – Crowns/Caps

Also called a “cap”, the crown covers the tooth to provide additional support for severely decayed teeth. After the decay is removed, the tooth is shaped so the crown can be placed. These crowns are different from adult crowns because they can be done in one appointment. Crowns are quite durable because they cover the whole tooth. The full coverage strengthens and protects the rest of the tooth structure.

Kaufman Children’s Dental Hospital performs a number of dental treatments to correct any defects in your child’s teeth. Elan Kaufman DDS and his staff have years of experience in these modern  techniques, and will ensure your child gets the best dental care, no matter what.

About East Flatbush

This is a residential neighborhood in the city of Brooklyn, NY. It consists of smaller neighborhoods-Remsen Village, Rugby, Wingate, Faragut, and Erasmus. The area is one of New York’s most sizzling melting pots in terms of shopping, food, and architecture. Located next to Flatbush, and is considered very similar; so much so that some consider the two neighborhoods to be the same community. In 2010 about 105,000 people were residing in this neighborhood.However, he New York City Subway is not as accessible from East Flatbush as Flatbush. However, the IRT Nostrand Avenue Line (2 and 5 trains) has several stops located in the neighborhood, including Newkirk Avenue, Beverly Road, and Church Avenue (Wikipedia).
