Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

What is pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry addresses the dental needs of children of all ages. The specialists at Pediatric Dental Group of New York focus exclusively on helping children grow up with the best oral health possible.

What happens during pediatric dentistry appointments?

The Pediatric Dental Group of New York specialists work collectively to make their office a welcoming place so your child looks forward to their visits rather than feeling worried or fearful. 

The friendly specialists tailor their approach for your child's age and developmental stage, and they're also special needs dentistry experts. Your child's care usually includes:

Preventive care

During appointments, the dentists, dental hygienists, and other professionals perform routine care like teeth cleanings and dental exams with a caring touch. Preventive care can also include fluoride treatments if you have non fluoridated water and dental sealants that protect against tooth decay.

Treatments for dental problems

If your child has tooth decay, gum disease, or some other kind of dental problems, the team can treat the issue immediately to prevent worsening oral health issues. 

Pediatric Dental Group of New York offers anxiety-free dental care for children. With in-office conscious sedation, including nitrous oxide, your child is very comfortable without going to sleep.


Orthodontics includes not only braces but also other devices that can correct alignment issues, make room for teeth, and improve the bite. Your child may also need special habit correction devices that prevent oral damage due to thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, and other bad habits. 

Regardless of which treatment your child needs, the team helps them to feel comfortable and positive about their dental care experiences.

When should my child have pediatric dentistry appointments?  

Pediatric dental care should start early and continue regularly throughout childhood. The American Dental Association recommends scheduling your child's first appointment when their first tooth erupts or at their first birthday. 

Schedule your child's routine preventive care, including teeth cleanings and pediatric dental checkups, every six months to maintain good oral health. 

Your child may need additional appointments for fillings, crowns, and other types of necessary care like orthodontics or hospital dentistry. But, with consistent preventive dentistry, your child is far less likely to need such interventions.

Pediatric Dental Group of New York provides top-level dental care for children, so call the office nearest you or click on the online appointment tool to schedule a visit with the caring team.
