Marvin Frimmer DDS -Pediatric dental exams and cleanings in Bronx

Your child’s first visit to our pediatric dentist in the Bronx will consist of a full examination and cleaning, but before that, she or he will have a chance to meet everyone and to find out what the tools and equipment are for. Becoming familiar with them makes them seem less intimidating. The checkup itself begins with a visual and physical inspection of his or her teeth, along with taking x-rays to detect any cavities early on. Baby (primary) teeth are particularly prone to cavities from tooth decay. Our pediatric dentist in the Bronx wants to prevent your child from getting toothaches, infections, and possibly losing a tooth before it was meant to fall out naturally. If that does occur, other teeth may shift. And that can close off the room for adult (permanent) teeth to erupt later. Teeth cleanings can provoke some initial resistance, mostly because of the sound. But your child will grow used to it, and for the most part it is not a difficult experience. As with other aspects of her or his visit, Dr. Frimmer will explain why it’s being done and what to expect. It’s important to remove plaque that has escaped at-home oral hygiene, as well as hardened tartar. Those bacterial substances are primarily responsible for tooth decay to begin with.Optimal oral wellness is vital for your child, and a big part of that is represented by our pediatric dental exams and cleanings. In addition to the expert and gentle care that our pediatric dentist in the Bronx, Marvin Frimmer DDS, provides, we are also pleased to have created and maintained a friendly, welcoming environment. Your child will feel completely at ease here.

Call us today and schedule his or her first visit to our pediatric dentist in the Bronx office. Your child’s dental health is too precious to leave it to chance.

preventive medicine

When it comes to dental care for children, the adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is true.

While proper brushing and flossing, as well as healthy eating habits, are critical in assisting children in achieving a lifetime of healthy smiles, you should not overlook the importance of scheduling regular visits with your child’s pediatric dentist.
Remember that twice-yearly visits can go a long way toward providing your child with good oral health.

Services for Preventive Care:

Dental cleanings on a regular basis

Instruction on oral hygiene

How should I clean my baby’s teeth?

Plaque bacteria, which can lead to tooth decay, can be removed with a toothbrush.

Any soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head, preferably one designed specifically for infants, should be used at bedtime at least once a day.

When should I bring my child to the dentist for his or her first check-up?

To avoid dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist as soon as his or her first tooth appears, or no later than his or her first birthday.

What is the distinction between a pediatric and a family dentist?

Pediatric dentists are the dental equivalent of pediatricians.

Following dental school, a pediatric dentist receives two to three years of specialty training and limits his or her practice to treating children only.

Pediatric dentists provide primary and specialty oral care to infants, children, and adolescents, including those with special health needs.

Are my child’s baby teeth really that important?

Primary teeth, also known as “baby teeth,” are important for a variety of reasons.

They not only assist children in speaking clearly and chewing naturally, but they also aid in the formation of a path for permanent teeth to follow when they are ready to erupt.

What should I do if my child is suffering from a toothache?

First, rinse the irritated area with warm salt water and apply a cold compress to the swollen area of the face.

Instead of putting aspirin on the child’s teeth or gums, give him or her acetaminophen for pain.

Finally, make an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible.

Is thumbsucking and pacifier use bad for a child’s teeth?

Thumb and pacifier sucking habits are generally only a problem if they persist for an extended period of time.

Most children will stop sucking their thumbs or fingers on their own, but if they are still sucking their thumbs or fingers after the age of three, your pediatric dentist may recommend a mouth appliance.

How can I avoid nursing-related tooth decay?

Avoid putting anything other than water in your child’s bedtime bottle or nursing them to sleep.

Also, learn how to brush and floss your child’s teeth properly.

Take your child to a pediatric dentist on a regular basis to have his or her teeth and gums examined.

Your child’s first dental visit should be scheduled by the time he or she turns one.

How often should my child visit the pediatric dentist?

A six-month check-up is recommended to prevent cavities and other dental problems.

Your pediatric dentist, on the other hand, can advise you on when and how frequently your child should visit based on their personal oral health.

When should we start using toothpaste, and how much should we use?

The sooner you start, the better!

Clean your child’s gums with a soft infant toothbrush or cloth and water beginning at birth.

Brush baby teeth twice daily, as soon as they erupt, with a soft, age-appropriate toothbrush and a tiny smear of fluoride toothpaste.

When children are 3 to 6 years old, the amount should be increased to a pea-size dollop and your child’s toothbrushing should be performed or assisted.

Keep in mind that young children lack the ability to brush their teeth effectively.

After brushing, children should spit out any excess toothpaste and not swallow it.

How can I ensure that my child’s diet is tooth-friendly?

Make sure your child eats a well-balanced diet that includes one serving of each of the following: fruits and vegetables, breads and cereals, milk and dairy products, meat, fish, and eggs.

Limiting your child’s intake of sugars and starches will also help to protect his or her teeth from decay.

You can also ask your pediatric dentist to assist you in selecting foods that are good for your children’s teeth.

How do dental sealants function?

Sealants function by filling in crevasses on the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

This prevents food particles from becoming trapped in the teeth and causing cavities.

The application is quick and painless, and it can effectively protect teeth for many years.

What is the best way to tell if my child is getting enough fluoride?

Sealants function by filling in crevasses on the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

This prevents food particles from becoming trapped in the teeth and causing cavities.

The application is quick and painless, and it can effectively protect teeth for many years.

What can I do to protect my child’s teeth while he or she is participating in sports?

Soft plastic mouthguards can be worn by children to protect their teeth, lips, cheeks, and gums from sports-related injuries.

A custom-fitted mouthguard designed by a pediatric dentist will protect your child’s teeth, face, and even provide protection from severe head injuries.

What should I do if my child trips and breaks a permanent tooth?

The most important thing to remember is to stay calm.

Then locate the tooth.

Try to re-insert it into the socket by holding it by the crown rather than the root.

If that is not possible, place the tooth in a glass of milk and take your child and the glass to the pediatric dentist right away.

Dental X-rays: How safe are they?

Dental X-rays pose very little risk.

Pediatric dentists take extra precautions to limit the amount of radiation to which children are subjected.

To ensure safety and reduce radiation, lead aprons and high-speed film are used.

How can parents assist in the prevention of tooth decay?

Beginning with the eruption of the first tooth, parents should take their children to the dentist on a regular basis.

The dentist can then recommend a specific brushing, flossing, and other treatment program for parents to supervise and teach to their children.

These at-home treatments, when combined with regular dental visits and a well-balanced diet, will help your child develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
