If you are looking for an excellent dental practice where your kids can have their dental exams, receive gentle dental cleanings, and have any necessary treatment, then you should see us at Lakehurst Dental. Our kids dentist in Toms River, Dr. Brian S. Klohn or Dr. Sinikka E. Kazanjian, will be able to provide your child with excellent and gentle kids dental care.
It is generally recommended that children come in to see our dentist when their first baby tooth erupts, or they reach one year of age – whichever happens first. Our dentist will then let you know how often he should see your child for dental exams. It is very important that children are seen by our kids dentist in Toms River so that our dentist can make sure that your child’s teeth and gums are staying healthy. Baby teeth play many important functions in your child’s mouth, so it is important that even baby teeth are keep healthy for as long as they are needed. Baby teeth act as place holders for permanent teeth, help your child to chew his or her food thoroughly for proper digestion, and help your child to develop clear speaking habits. So baby teeth need to stay healthy for as long as they are needed. Your child will also be able to have fluoride treatments at our office to help strengthen their tooth enamel. We also offer dental sealants which act as a protective barrier between harmful plaque and the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s molars and premolars. Our entire staff will make sure that your child has a fun and stress-free time at our dental office. This way your child will grow up with good memories of their early dental care, and will not develop any fears of going to the dentist, or of receiving dental treatment.
