  • Dental Examinations and Hygiene: Preventing oral problems is a vital part of making sure your child’s smile stays healthy. At their routine checkups and cleanings, we can identify any issues such as cavities right away. They’ll be smaller and easier to treat when we catch them early on.
  • Protective Mouthguards: Does your child engage in contact sport? You can make sure their smile is shielded from damage with a custom-created mouthguard. Athletic activities are a leading cause of dental emergencies and oral injury. A fitted mouthguard makes a difference, particularly when compared to a boil-and-bite kit. A custom mouthguard provides a superior fit, which will give your child greater protection.
  • Restorative Fillings and Crowns: Despite your best efforts to keep your child’s oral health on track, cavities can still happen. If your child has tooth decay, it should be treated as early as possible. A quick intervention means minimal risk of the decay spreading. Our tooth-coloured fillings and crowns will allow your child to smile with confidence again.
  • Fissure Sealants: You want your child to have protection against cavities. They can have an extra measure of it with our fissure sealants. This thin plastic coating covers over a child’s back teeth. Bacteria then can’t gather in the deep grooves of the molars. It’s a quick, painless procedure that requires just a few minutes. You can easily add fissure sealants to your child’s regular hygiene appointments.
  • Fluoride Treatments: Your child’s healthy tooth enamel can be safeguarded by having a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral. A treatment will make their teeth more resistant to decay and promote their optimal oral health.
  • Oral Hygiene Education: Most dental health problems could be easily prevented. With that in mind, we want to teach your child the proper techniques that keep their teeth sparkling and clean. They should begin to brush twice daily and floss each day in childhood. We want to teach them how to do so correctly. The dental assistant we have on staff enjoys educating children about oral hygiene habits.
