Children’s Dentistry

Sealants and Fluoride

The back teeth are particularly susceptible to decay. Dental sealants offer a way to protect these teeth and reduce the chance for cavity development. Our dentist will apply a durable resin material that covers the top and back of the teeth (areas with nooks and crevices that can be very hard for a toothbrush to reach). This “sealant” can ultimately provide years of enhanced protection against cavities for the back teeth and reduce the need for dental fillings later on. Dental sealants have proven very beneficial for many patients, especially children.

Fillings & Dental Cavities

One of the most common oral health problems is a dental cavity. Unfortunately, children’s teeth are especially susceptible to cavities due to their outer enamel being much thinner.

If a child’s cavity is small, it can be treated with dental implants. The affected area is removed, repaired and then filled to maintain proper appearance and function.

Once cavities have become larger more extensive treatments are required in order to save your child’s tooth. It is best to book regular examinations to catch problems when they are small and easily fixed. To schedule your child’s checkup and cleaning, contact our office today.

Mouth Guards

A mouth guard is a flexible laminated plastic or mesh device used to prevent injuries to the teeth, mouth, nose, tongue, and gums in sports The use of a mouth guard can prevent oral injuries to the mouth.

Our team creates custom-fitted mouthguards to be worn during sports activities. These custom-fitted mouthguards are very comfortable in the mouth as they protect teeth and gums from sports-related injuries.

Some sports-related injuries includes:
  • tooth loss
  • lacerated gum
  • jaw fractures

These are common among children and adults and can have long-term consequences. That is why mouthguards are necessary to protects one’s mouth against trauma to the teeth, gums, soft tissues and supporting bones.

Space Maintainers

Space monitors are custom made by a dentist using acrylic and metal materials. It can be removed or cemented into the child’s mouth. The purpose of this is to free up space for the permanent tooth to erupt and come into place.

Why your child may need a space maintainer?

Children may need a space maintainer if they lose a tooth early or have a primary tooth extracted due to dental decay. It may take a few days for a child to get accustomed to wearing the appliance whether it is removal or cemented. If the space maintainer is cemented, it is very important to avoid chewy and sugary food, gums, or cande, because it may loosen or get caught on the appliance.
