For children (and many adults, for that matter), their back teeth are the most likely to develop cavities over time. The wide, rough, and pitted surfaces on these teeth can easily trap food particles and plaque; they can also be particularly difficult to clean with little hands that are still learning to brush. To give these teeth some extra protection, we can apply a thin, clear dental sealant. This plastic-based substance is applied as a liquid and then quickly hardened in place, creating an invisible barrier that cavity-causing factors cannot cross.
Do you have a little athlete at home? To make sure their smile stays in one piece as they go for sporting glory, they should always wear a protective mouthguard. Instead of having them use an uncomfortable “one-size-fits-all” appliance from the store, our team can provide them with their own custom-made mouthguard. It will be shaped to fit their particular teeth, helping it better shield their smile while also allowing for easy breathing and speaking.
