Preventive Treatment Includes:

    preventive dentistry

  • Digital Dental X-rays – powerful diagnostic tools used to identify possible problems that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
  • Teeth cleaning/flossing – plaque/tartar removal, followed by polishing.
  • Fluoride treatment – helps keep teeth free of decay, and also can repair teeth in the early, microscopic stages of disease.
  • Dental sealants – a plastic coating applied to the biting surfaces of the molars to help prevent decay.
  • Counseling – we address diet, bottle and sippy cup use, and hygiene with parents.

Preventive treatments typically start around age 3, when children are old enough to sit in a chair for teeth cleaning.

Custom Athletic Mouth Guards

We fabricate custom made athletic mouth guards for our patients. A custom fitted mouth guard will allow the child to breath and speak easier, thus enabling them to wear it more to prevent injury and concussion.
