How does your child feel about the dentist? For some kids, dental visits can be scary or anxiety-ridden. This is something our Peekskill dentist
and the rest of the staff at Montrose Dental Associates work hard to avoid with our pediatric patients. By creating an environment that is welcoming, friendly, and fun, we like to show our younger patients that the dentist doesn’t have to be a scary place, and that it can even be a place that they will like to come back and visit. Part of this attempt at creating familiarity and a welcoming space is to encourage your children to feel excited about keeping their teeth healthy and clean. We recommend that you bring your child in for dental exams about twice a year, so that our Peekskill dentist
can keep tabs on how the teeth are erupting, and how the overall structures of the mouth are developing. These regular exams are also so important because they allow us to uncover any developing dental issues, like cavities or gum disease, so that we can address them early on and save the hassle of more in-depth and expensive dental work in the future.

In that sense, regular dental exams are some of the most important preventative pediatric dental services offered at Montrose Dental Associates. Another preventative service that is popular with our pediatric patients is the use of dental sealants. The sealants coat your child’s permanent molars as soon as they grow in, in order to prevent them from bacteria and decay. This is a very easy and also very effective procedure that can truly save you money and time in the long run. We would love to inform you about other procedures that will work best for your child’s individual needs during your next appointment at Montrose Dental Associates.
For further information about our services, both pediatric and otherwise, we encourage you to visit the Montrose Dental Associates website. There you can find a wealth of information about our Peekskill general dentist
at the various services that we provide, and also some basic information about your dental health and how to preserve it. If you have a question or comment for us, do not hesitate to contact us either by phone or online. We hope to see you and your family soon at Montrose Dental Associates.
