Mouthguards

Mouth guards are dental devices that shield and safeguard your teeth. They come in various types, and dentists suggest them for various reasons. Mouthguards are beneficial for children and adults, typically worn over the upper teeth, although a lower teeth mouth guard might be advised in specific instances. Irrespective of your type, wearing a mouth guard offers protection against different conditions and injuries to your teeth and mouth.

Sealants & Fluoride Treatment

Dental sealants are thin coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, mainly the molars. They aim to protect your teeth from cavities and decay by forming a barrier that blocks germs and food particles. By preventing cavities, sealants can help you avoid more costly and involved dental procedures such as fillings.
Getting sealants is a quick and painless procedure. Your dentist will paint the sealant onto your teeth, then harden and bond to the surface. With proper care, sealants can last several years, providing long-lasting protection for your teeth.

Space Maintainers

Losing a baby tooth too early can lead to alignment and spacing problems for permanent teeth. Dentists may suggest using space maintainers, devices that keep a space open for the proper growth of permanent teeth. Your child’s pediatric dentist will examine their mouth and teeth during a visit to determine if a space maintainer is needed. If necessary, a custom-made device will be created and placed in the area of the lost tooth. This simple solution can prevent future dental issues and promote the proper development of your child’s adult teeth.
