Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) June 13, 2017
The importance of good preventative dental care from a very early age has become increasingly recognized over the past few years, with more clinical studies linking poor oral health to poor general health. The standard of pediatric dental care given to a young patient can shape their dental health and their attitude towards professional dental care for life. This is something top-rated pediatric dentist Dr. Mila Cohen understands all too well. It is this dedicated dentist’s mission to ensure every child visiting her practice receives the very best level of dental care available today.
Dr. Mila Cohen chose to pursue the rigorous training required for pediatric dentistry because she is passionate about children’s dental care. “As a parent, I understand the importance of choosing the right pediatric dentist in New Jersey to look after your child,” explains Dr. Cohen, “and I consider it a privilege to be able to provide the very best dental care for kids of all ages.”
When a child has a negative experience at the dentist, it can easily create fears and phobias that will last for life. Often many adults struggling with poor dental health will have failed to seek treatment because of these childhood experiences. Dr. Cohen’s approach towards helping nervous children is to work with them and their parents, and she has extensive and specialized skills to help a child feel that dental visits are fun and enriching, rather than something to be feared. By building a relationship with a child and their parent, Dr. Cohen can ensure every visit is a positive experience.
Dr. Cohen uses child-sized instruments and equipment to make examinations and treatments more comfortable. She points out, “An ordinary general dental office is unlikely to have invested in this equipment, but imagine how much less comfortable it would be as an adult, if you were treated with tools that were too big for your mouth. Our handpieces and all our tools are correctly sized to treat a child’s mouth.”
As the best rated pediatric dentist in Jersey City, NJ, Dr. Cohen is focused on providing the best and most advanced treatments to help protect young teeth. This includes the use of silver diamine fluoride (SDF) where appropriate.
This treatment is regarded as being a “magic bullet” for preventing and treating early signs of cavities in children’s teeth and has already been in use for many years in Europe and Asia. SDF was recently approved for use in the United States and is a safe and non-invasive way to prevent cavities from worsening. “The silver in this treatment has anti-microbial properties,” explains Dr. Cohen, “killing bacteria and preventing regrowth.” Dr. Cohen is extremely keen on preventing dental problems as this approach helps avoid a very young child from needing a dental filling, especially as some children find treatment very hard to cope with.
Dr. Cohen’s pediatric dental practice is equipped with the latest scanning equipment. Using the most advanced diagnostic technology helps to safely detect small problems in children’s teeth while ensuring they are not exposed to unnecessarily high levels of radiation. This equipment includes digital dental x-rays that produce high-quality images which are instantly displayed on-screen. These images allow Dr. Cohen to diagnose and provide the most appropriate treatment more quickly which is essential if a child is in any discomfort. When needed, Dr. Cohen will use the most advanced 3D scanning equipment available in the United States and this provides valuable diagnostic information needed when planning more sophisticated treatments such as orthodontics. This up-to-date technology reduces radiation exposure by more than 77%.
