Early Dental Care in Peekskill, New York

Tell. Show. Do.

Our team uses this technique on virtually all young patients. We explain to our patients what we’re going to do. We show them what we’re going to do. And then we do it.

Recare Appointments

Our recare (or routine checkup) appointments are more than just a cleaning. Every recare visit is an opportunity to effectively teach and reinforce oral health.

Preventative sealants in Peekskill, New York

Preventative Sealants

The grooves and small indentations on the surface of the back teeth are where food particles accumulate most often. As a result, these are also most common areas to get cavities. To prevent this, we place a sealant, a hard white material, which flows into the grooves and fissures on the surface of the teeth. Sealants prevent food remnants from sticking to the teeth. This is a non-invasive procedure which is a very effective and easy way to avoid cavities.

Fluoride Treatment

When fluoride is used in the right amounts and on a routine basis, it helps to prevent tooth decay. It keeps the enamel strong and encourages “remineralization,” or hardening of weakened areas that are often the beginning of a cavity. Fluoride occurs naturally in water, foods, and dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, gels, varnish and supplements. Fluoride can be a key element of an affective preventive program.

Mouth Guards

Mouth guards can offer protection to patients with persistent grinding (bruxism) and other habits such as jaw clenching. The “night guard” requires careful evaluation and becomes a part of the patient’s routine check up. Athletic mouth guards are another common use for mouth guards. They can prevent serious dental injuries to active kids.

Been taking my kids here for years. The staff and dentist are awesome. The place is friendly for children, and even has video games in the front to ease the kids anxiety about dentists. If you live in the area and have children, I highly recommend this practice.
