Their First Dentist Visit
We get a lot of inquiries regarding children and dental care. That is a wonderful thing! We love to educate anyone about oral health. Kids should be about 2.5-3 years old when they get their first dental appointment. There are exceptional circumstances for making an appointment earlier if you notice brown or black spots (cavities) on your child’s teeth before that age. If you notice that after your child reaches the age of 6 months to a year old, and they do not have any teeth coming in, you may schedule an appointment, as well as an appointment with their primary care physician, as they will likely refer you over to a family dentist.
At 3 years old, kids are at a perfect age to come and explore the dentist’s office, because they are able to communicate, cooperate, and understand the dentists and dental assistants. Little brothers and sisters are more than welcome to come and watch a check-up, so they get genuine experience with what goes on in the dentist’s chair. We believe this desensitizes them to the entire process and takes away a lot of the fear they may have.
This family dentist in Irvington, NJ makes sure they are very gentle with their young patients, and make sure that they are comfortable and pain-free during their treatment.
Dental Sealants & Braces are Available at Our Family Dentist in Irvington, NJ Office
Dr. Gaymes and Dr. Jones are specialists in the development of teeth and are bringing effective and innovative ways to protect teeth to our patients. They have proven throughout the years that using sealants on children’s teeth prevents tooth decay at young ages.
These dental sealants are only applied to hard to reach surfaces, like the backside of the back teeth, where depressions and grooves in the teeth store bacteria that decays enamel, leading to cavities. The sealant is a protective plastic and is completely harmless to your child, and they will not even notice it is there. Dr. Gaymes and Dr. Jones are committed to ending childhood cavities, and their methods are making big strides in our community, as children are growing up with healthier teeth and gums, which goes with them into adulthood.
The sealants are very easy to apply for our dentists. It only takes just a few minutes to seal up the teeth that commonly harbor plaque that rots teeth. The process is easy and straightforward:
- The dentist cleans the tooth to ensure there is no bacteria being sealed inside
- The tooth’s surface is very lightly scratched, so the sealant bonds to the tooth
- The sealant is then applied, effectively sealing the tooth, and protecting it from harmful bacteria
Our sealants are very strong and will not come loose from normal eating and chewing. It will stay on for several years before it needs to be reapplied. Every year, Dr. Jones will check on the sealants to see how they are holding up. If there is a tooth that needs a reapplication, it will be done on the spot, and just a few minutes later, everything will be like new!
