Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of children's molars and premolars to prevent tooth decay. The sealant material fills the grooves and pits on the teeth, creating a smooth surface that is easier to clean. Sealants are a safe and painless way to protect children's teeth and can last for several years. They are a great preventive dentistry measure for children who are prone to cavities and can help maintain good oral health.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

It’s common knowledge that fluoride is great for preventing cavities, but what is silver diamine fluoride? Essentially, it’s a paste used to stop active cavities. The silver in the solution kills the harmful bacteria while the fluoride preserves and protects the tooth enamel. Silver diamine fluoride allows us to address cavities more quickly and conservatively without having to use a drill, making the process more pleasant for everyone.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

Athletic mouthguards are important for children as they protect their teeth, lips, tongue, and jaw from injuries. They also reduce the risk of concussion during contact sports. Custom-fitted mouthguards provide the best protection and comfort, allowing children and parents to enjoy sports without worrying about dental injuries. The best way to get one is by working with a children's dentist—we’ll simply take a mold of your child’s teeth and use this to design their custom guard that will be so comfortable they’ll forget they are wearing it.

Lip & Tongue-Tie Treatment

Lip and tongue tie treatment is performed in infants to correct issues resulting from a tight or shortened frenulum, which connects the tongue or lips to the mouth. The procedure, known as a frenectomy, is done using a laser, which precisely cuts the frenulum to release the tongue or lip, improving breathing, oral function, and speech. It is minimally invasive and has a quick recovery time, with minimal discomfort or pain. It is safe and effective and can significantly improve the quality of life for infants, particularly those who have difficulties breast or bottle feeding.

Non-Nutritive Habits (Thumb Sucking)

Infant sucking their thumb

Most children will suck their thumb at some point, and while many will grow out of it, some will not. If your child sucks their thumb or finger past the point where their teeth start to come in, this could lead to orthodontic problems down the road that require treatment. Thanks to our experience with children, we can work with them and you to break the habit while making the process as smooth as possible.

Pulp Therapy

Models of damaged teeth that need pulp therapy

Pulp therapy is a dental treatment that aims to save a child's damaged or infected tooth. It involves removing the pulp of the tooth and replacing it with a filling material. There are two types of pulp therapy - pulpotomy and pulpectomy. Pulpotomy is a partial removal of the pulp while pulpectomy is a complete removal. These procedures can help prevent the need for a tooth extraction and maintain the child's dental health.
