When it comes to going to the dentist children are really special. They require special handling so that they cooperate with the dental team and become enthusiastic about caring for their teeth. Our dentist, Dr. Masis Yeterian, Jr., DMD practices pediatric dentistry in Cos Cob and places an emphasis on the unique dental concerns of patients whose teeth, gums and facial structures are still developing. Our philosophy at My Creative Dentist is to treat our young patients with respect in a stress-free atmosphere that makes coming to our state-of-the-art dental office a fun experience that the children will look forward to. Not only is the goal to care for the children’s teeth but also to educate them about their teeth and caring for them properly.
Your child’s initial appointment with our practice is the most important session because our doctor will check the development of the youngster’s teeth and jaw, bite, gums as well as their facial structure. This is a crucial assessment that our doctor makes with our younger patients because the earlier any abnormalities can be diagnosed and treated the better the outcome. The specialized experience of our pediatric dentistry in Cos Cob practice has given us the ability to diagnose subtle problems in oral development of even the very young child. Your child should be brought into our office for an initial examination as soon as their primary teeth start to erupt, usually by their first birthday.
The primary objective of our pediatric dentistry in Cos Cob practice is to keep your child’s oral health in top shape so that their teeth and gums are decay free and they develop good oral hygiene habits. In addition to regular checkups and dental cleanings our doctor recommends the use of dental sealants, which are the latest plastic technology that is bonded onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where children have a hard time brushing effectively to protect them from decay. Our practice also uses fluoride treatment
