About Our Pediatric Dental & Orthodontic Services
Adelberg Montalvan is a West Islip pediatric dental practice that provides exceptional care tailored to the needs of children. Our services include:
Pediatric Dental Emergencies – With our extended hours, there’s no one better in West Islip to handle pediatric dental emergencies. Even when our office is closed, you’ll be able to call us and speak with one of our doctors, not an answering service.
Holistic Dentistry – Holistic dentistry is an approach that values prevention over treatment and believes that dental health and overall wellness are closely linked.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening – Opalescence is a gentle teeth whitening treatment suitable for older children and teens. We offer both in-office treatments as well as at-home whitening kits.
Custom Mouth Guards – If your child plays sports, it’s important that they have a custom mouth guard to protect their teeth from injury. These mouth guards are more comfortable and effective than the ones that can be purchased in stores or online.
Pediatric Laser Dentistry – Laser dentistry has been a game-changer for pediatric patients, allowing us to treat cavities without shots, perform frenectomies with little bleeding, and offer children a more comfortable experience at the dentist.
Frenectomy – We provide frenectomies for infant tongue and lip tie to improve feeding and speech. Our frenectomies are performed with advanced CO2 lasers, making the procedure quick and simple.
Pediatric Dental Trauma – If your child has suffered dental trauma, it’s important not to panic—with prompt treatment, we can often repair the damage.
Preventive Dentistry – Preventive dentistry is the heart of everything we do at Adelberg Montalvan. With treatments designed to preserve the health of your child’s teeth, we’ll keep them smiling bright!
Sedation Dentistry – With our pediatric laser dentistry services, dental sedation is not often needed. Still, many children have anxiety about dental visits and dental sedation can help.
Special Needs Dentistry – As pediatric dentists, we have specialized training in treating patients with special needs. We offer compassionate care tailored to your child’s unique healthcare needs, taking the stress out of dental visits.
Frequently Asked Questions About Our West Islip Pediatric Dental Practice
What is the difference between a dentist and a pediatric dentist?
Both general dentists and pediatric dentists attend dental school, but pediatric dentists go on to receive an additional two to three years of education allowing them to specialize in treating children. Pediatric dentists have a deeper understanding not only of the unique dental needs of pediatric patients, but also the psychology involved in making children feel comfortable at the dentist.
Should my child see a pediatric dentist?
We might be biased, but we believe the answer to this question is yes. Pediatric dental practices offer a more welcoming, fun experience for children, making dental appointments something they look forward to. Our advanced training means we have more knowledge and experience in treating children’s teeth.
What age should a toddler go to the dentist?
The American Dental Association (ADA) and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) both recommend that children start seeing the dentist around the age of 12 months or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth.
How often should a child see a dentist?
Just like adults, children should see the dentist every six months for comprehensive dental exams and cleanings.
