Here at Growing Smiles of Englewood, our Bergenfield pedodontist is dedicated to making your children’s visit to our office both informative and engaging. Specializing in the oral healthcare needs of children ranging in age from infancy through adolescence, Dr. Eytan Chen and his caring staff are great with kids, and welcome you and yours to come to our office for routine checkups and care. Whether it’s already time for their back-to-school checkup, or they’ve got a cavity, you can depend on our experienced dentist to provide the gentle, compassionate, and precise treatment they deserve.
One of the most important services your Bergenfield pedodontist provides for your children is careful instruction in the proper methods for brushing and flossing. Plaque buildup is responsible for the development of the most common dental conditions, including cavities, and among adults, gum disease. By brushing and flossing daily, your kids can greatly reduce their risk for developing cavities—a condition which was recently noted as the single most common childhood dental condition by the American Dental Association. Because maintaining good oral hygiene plays such an essential role in the prevention of dental disease, we also provide professional teeth cleanings, as well as specialized treatments which further aid in protecting your children’s teeth from harm. Around the ages of 6 and 12, children’s first molars typically come in. These back teeth have deep ridges which make excellent hiding spots for dental plaque and debris to stow away. By providing dental sealants—thin, protective coatings which smooth over the crevices of these back teeth—your children’s back teeth will be guarded against difficult to reach plaque buildup.
When it comes to your children’s oral health, your Bergenfield pedodontist is an exceptional resource. Proudly providing the instruction, treatment, and education necessary for your little ones to establish and maintain excellent oral health well into their adult lives, we welcome the opportunity to see their smiles!
