Molars and premolars contain pits and grooves that can easily trap harmful particles. Without appropriate treatment, these teeth can become havens for bad oral bacteria and plaque. With the help of dental sealants, however, we can safeguard your child’s back teeth. These thin, clear coatings are applied during a regular exam and can last up to 10 years with regular care. By applying dental sealants, we can prevent food particles from penetrating and causing decay to occur.
If your child enjoys playing sports, there’s no better way to protect their smile than with a customized athletic mouthguard. Unlike those found in local sporting goods stores that are one-size-fits-all, we can custom craft an oral device that will protect teeth from harm no matter the sport that is being played.
Young teeth also have a small amount of pulp inside them. Should this area become damaged or infected, we’ll need to remove the pulp and thoroughly clean out your child’s tooth canals. By implementing pulp therapy, we can easily clear away any problem areas that are the cause of your pain. Once this is finished, your child will be free of discomfort caused by the infection, allowing for a healthier, happier smile.
A lip and tongue tie are common formations in children these days. Although this restrictive band of tissue can loosen over time as a child grows up, others need surgical assistance. We offer frenectomies as a way to eliminate the banded tissue and improve oral functioning. If left untreated, infants can face difficulty nursing and gaining weight, while children and adults can experience difficulty eating and swallowing as well as a speech impediment.
