Smiles 4 Keeps
This is by far the best kids dentist. I am from syracuse and I looked all over for a dentist here and they were mostly all about the money. Some even let my child leave in pain because I did not have thousands of dollars on hand. This dentist cares about your child first. My son is 4 and had a toothache I called the office on a Friday and was in on monday. Actually just in the nick of time because he got a bad toothache sunday night. I went in at 9 and they had my back by 10. Really not bad for such a busy place. The dentist did all the work that needed to be done and didn't charge thousands. There first priority was getting my son out of pain. He now loves going to the dentist when before I had to drag him. This is truly a wonderful office the staff is so caring and wonderful. They are my saviors. I will travel the 250 miles to see this dentist for the rest of my son's dental exams. They are the best I can't say it enough. I HIGHLY recommend this office. I will forever be greatful.

Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
