To learn more about our pediatric dental services in Middletown, schedule your child’s next exam and cleaning with our friendly and caring dentist.
Dr. Waldman understands the importance of proper oral hygiene and provides our young patients with easy-to-understand techniques for keeping teeth healthy. At our practice, we take the time to answer questions from both parents and patients, and provide education on your child’s oral healthcare needs. If restorative services are necessary, we ensure that parents and children are equipped to avoid additional damage from decay or physical trauma in the future.
Preventive Dental Services
In addition to providing comprehensive health education, Dr. Waldman emphasizes prevention. Preventive services help to keep your child healthy and ensure that they do not come to associate the dentist with purely extensive treatment. With routine care, children at our office learn positive habits that last a lifetime.
Twice Yearly Exams and Cleanings: These regular appointments help your child’s smile remain healthy, and allow our team to coach them on improved at-home hygiene. Routine visits also help young patients feel comfortable at the dentist.
Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride strengthens dental enamel, which is essential for children. By providing fluoride varnishes, we prevent cavities from forming on baby teeth.
Dental Sealants: Sealants are a thin plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of your child’s molars. This treatment prevents decay on teeth with deep grooves as they are more likely to trap food particles. Sealants are ideally placed when children keep up proper oral hygiene, as teeth with fillings cannot be sealed.
If your child has already experienced some decay, or has damaged their teeth in an accident, our team at Hudson Valley Pediatric can fully restore their smile. Dr. Waldman uses durable composite resin and dental porcelain to fabricate our restorations, ensuring that whether your child needs a filling or crown, the natural appearance of their smile is maintained.
Each of our restorations are customized for your child, providing them with a smile they can feel good about as they get older.
