Protect Your Child’s Teeth with Sealants
The deep crevices of the molars are vulnerable to decay because a toothbrush can’t reach in far enough to remove all the food debris. These areas are ideal for plaque formation and the proliferation of bacteria. A simple solution to this problem is to apply a sealant to cover the crevices and create a smooth surface that’s easy for your child to clean with a toothbrush. The sealant material is thin but sturdy, and can last up to 10 years.
The Importance of Fluoride Treatment
While children are still in the process of developing good dental care habits at home, fluoride treatment can reinforce the strength of their tooth enamel, which can be damaged by plaque and bacteria. Right after your child’s dental cleaning, we will treat their teeth with a highly-concentrated fluoride solution to help restore their enamel and provide further protection against cavities.
We Can Provide Mouth Guards, Too
Kids who lead active lives and participate in sports are more prone to mouth injuries. To protect their smiles, we can provide custom-made mouth guards that fit them securely and comfortably at all times, so they can keep having fun and you can rest easy knowing they’re a little bit safer.
