Allenhurst Pediatric Dentist

Are you looking for an excellent pediatric dentist who will provide expert dental care for your child? If so, you will do well to come see us at our dental practice, Marc Berley, DMD. Our Allenhurst pediatric dentist is highly-trained in the various developmental stages that your child’s teeth and mouth will go through, and works with children and parents to help them understand the importance of good dental habits for children.

Our Allenhurst pediatric dentist is Dr. Marc Berley. Dr. Berley recommends that children come in for a dental checkup when their first baby tooth erupts, or when they reach one year of age, whichever comes first. Our dentist and entire staff do all that we can to make your child’s visit to our practice fun and stress-free. We want your child to grow up with positive feelings toward dentists and dental exams. This way he or she will most likely have a positive feeling about dental care, and will never hesitate to have it when they are older. Learning how to take care of a child’s teeth is also important to keep a growing mouth clean and healthy.

Depending on the age of the child, either the child or the parent will be taught about how to keep the child’s teeth clean. It is very important that growing children learn how to effectively brush and floss their teeth to ensure great dental health. Children will also be taught about the importance of having regular dental cleanings to help ensure healthy teeth and gums. Our dentist will also talk about the importance of brushing one’s teeth, especially after having sweets and carbs. Sweets and carbs are big contributors to dental cavities, and a good thorough brushing after eating will go a long way toward preventing dental cavities. It is very difficult for children to brush their teeth effectively, especially their back teeth. For this reason our dentist may offer dental sealants to protect the back molars and pre-molars. Dental sealants actually create a barrier between the sealant and the teeth, so that plaque, tartar and bacteria will not hurt the teeth. They can be applied to primary or permanent teeth. If you would like for your child to be seen by our Allenhurst pediatric dentist, Dr. Berley, contact us today for an appointment.
