About Our Pediatric Dental & Orthodontic Services
Adelberg Montalvan is a Massapequa Park pediatric dental practice that provides the highest quality care tailored to the needs of children. Our services include:
Pediatric Dental Emergencies – When your child has a dental emergency, it can be difficult not to panic, but our team of dentists is here to help. Because we offer extended office hours, it’s easy for us to accommodate pediatric dental emergencies in Massapequa Park. If an emergency occurs during a time when our office is closed, give us a call to speak with one of our doctors not an answering service.
Holistic Dentistry – Our holistic approach to dentistry involves emphasizing preventive care over treatment. If restorative dental care is needed, we use BPA-free, non-toxic materials for the health and safety of your child. Our imaging is digital which means less radiation and we offer fluoride alternatives when requested. Holistic dentistry means appreciating the link between your child’s overall wellness and their dental health.
Invisalign – Adelberg Montalvan offers both Invisalign and Invisalign Teen in Massapequa Park. If you want straighter teeth, but you don’t want to get traditional metal braces, Invisalign’s clear aligners are the perfect solution for you. They’re more comfortable, convenient, and discreet than conventional braces.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening – It’s not uncommon for older children and teens to have stained teeth, particularly after completing orthodontic treatment. In these situations, we use Opalescence, a gentle teeth whitening option that gives patients a brighter smile without causing enamel erosion or painful tooth sensitivity.
Custom Mouth Guards – It’s important to protect your child’s teeth and jaw from sports-related dental trauma with a custom-made mouth guard. While there are options for one-size-fits-all and boil-and-bite mouth guards in stores, these options simply don’t offer the same protection and comfort as a custom-made solution.
Pediatric Laser Dentistry – Our practice offers soft tissue and hard tissue laser dentistry in Massapequa Park. Whether your child needs to have a cavity treated or a frenectomy for tongue tie, laser dentistry allows us to perform the procedure without pain or local anesthetic injections. Pediatric laser dentistry means a more comfortable experience for children, with less bleeding, little noise, shorter treatment duration, and easier recovery.
Frenectomy – Adelberg Montalvan provides frenectomies for tongue tie and lip tie to improve infant feeding and speech in older children, we also remove ties to aid in orthodontic treatment. The procedure is simple, quick, and virtually painless thanks to our advanced CO2 soft tissue laser.
Pediatric Orthodontics – As a comprehensive pediatric dental practice, we also offer orthodontics. Our orthodontists provide early orthodontic treatment to prevent bite issues by influencing the shape of the jaw as it develops and Phase 2 orthodontic treatment, which includes traditional metal braces, Radiance Clear Braces, and Invisalign.
Pediatric Dental Trauma – You likely know exactly what to do if your child comes to you with a cut finger or scraped knee, but if your child knocks out a tooth, you probably have no idea what steps to take next. Don’t panic—call our office right away. No matter what kind of dental trauma you’re dealing with, we’ll provide prompt treatment to repair the damage, alleviate any pain, and restore your child’s beautiful smile.
Preventive Dentistry – Preventive dentistry is one of the most important things we do. Preventive care isn’t just dental exams, x-rays, and fluoride treatments—it’s also about teaching your children the importance of taking care of their teeth, showing them how to brush and floss properly, and making them feel comfortable and welcome at our office.
Sedation Dentistry – While pediatric laser dentistry has eliminated dental anxiety in many of our young patients, there are still some who need a little more help overcoming their fear of the dentist or have special needs. In such cases, we offer sedation options to keep them comfortable and calm during their treatments.
Special Needs Dentistry – At Adelberg Montalvan, we believe that all of our patients should be treated with respect, dignity, and compassion. We have specialized training in providing care for patients with special needs; we’re happy to work with you or your child’s other healthcare providers to find ways to make them feel welcome and comfortable at our practice.
Frequently Asked Questions About Our Massapequa Park Pediatric Dental Practice
What is the difference between a dentist and a pediatric dentist?
Pediatric dentists and family or general dentists all attend dental school. The difference is that upon graduating, pediatric dentists go on to receive an additional two to three years of schooling that trains them for the specialization of pediatric dentistry. This education focuses on the unique dental needs of children, including the psychology involved in helping children feel comfortable whenever they visit the dentist’s office.
Should my child see a pediatric dentist?
Yes, just as your child probably sees a pediatrician for their healthcare, they should also see a pediatric dentist for their dental care. As specialists, we have in-depth knowledge, expertise, and experience, which means we can provide better care. In addition to this, children prefer pediatric dental practices because we offer a more fun, welcoming environment. Kids feel excited knowing they’re someplace special that’s designed just for them, and this takes a lot of the fear out of going to the dentist.
What age should a toddler go to the dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Dental Association (ADA) recommend that children first see the dentist by the age of 12 months, or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth, whichever comes first. While some parents feel that this is too early, it’s an important step in acclimating your child to regular dental visits. It helps us establish our practice as their “dental home,” and lets us form a relationship of trust with your family.
How often should a child see a dentist?
No matter what your age, everyone should see a dentist every six months for comprehensive dental exams and cleanings—children, adults, and everyone in between.
What age should you see an orthodontist?
The current recommendation is that children start seeing an orthodontist around the age of 7. This doesn’t mean that orthodontic treatment starts at this time; instead, it’s when orthodontic monitoring begins. With regular visits, we can determine the best time to start early treatment in order to influence the shape of the jaw as it grows, making second phase orthodontic treatment shorter and more effective.
