Practicing and maintaining healthy oral habits begins at a young age. Young children can benefit from visiting a trusted, family dentist to grow and learn with. Keeping your child’s teeth and gums health now can promote a healthy, functional smile for years to come.
Montclair dentist Dr. David Srikureja offers pediatric dentistry services for children as young as 1 years old.

We encourage parents to visit our full service, comprehensive dental practice for the care they need to improve the health and function of their child’s smile.

Cavities are one of the most common dental concerns amongst younger patients. Our Montclair Plaza dental care team works closely with your child to help them learn the proper ways to brush, floss and take care of their teeth. Creating healthy habits at a young age can encourage healthy habits as they learn and grow.
Are Primary Teeth Important?
Your child’s “baby teeth” play more several roles, including enabling them to chew solid food. The primary teeth hold space for the permanent teeth and serve as a placeholder within the gums to facilitate healthy oral development. They also play a key role in your child’s speech development. Keeping the primary teeth healthy sets the stage for a growing smile that is stable, balanced and functioning naturally. If your child loses or damages a primary tooth, it is important that it be addressed as soon as possible to avoid more complex problems down the road related to the bite.

Most dentists recommend children visiting the dentist at the age of 1 or after the emergence of their first tooth. Our dental care team works with your child every step of the way. We screen for many common dental concerns, including those related to the structure and function of the bite. As your child grows we will monitor this development and make any necessary recommendations for early orthodontic care or other services. We also offer a variety of orthodontic treatments in our office for young smiles, including invisible braces
