Dr. Bruce Freund is proud to announce that his associate Dr. Angela Kim provides specialized and comprehensive oral healthcare for children and adolescents in our office in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. Baby teeth are very important to take care of. The sooner children begin getting having regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay in the future. These checkups can help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which may lead to pain, other medical issues or even issues concentration.
Children with healthy teeth are able to eat food more easily and can learn to speak more clearly. Early dental appointments are also a great way to teach parents and caregivers how to care for children’s teethso that they remain cavity free. A common issue pediatric dentists see are young patients who develop cavities from falling asleep which drinking juice or milk. Pediatric dentists are able to help parents monitor this.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than 40 percent of children have decay by the time they reach kindergarten. Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children in the United States.
