Why Choose Addison Family Dentistry for Children’s Dentistry?
- Upbeat, Compassionate Dentists & Team
- Convenient, Easy-to-Reach Dental Office Location
- Digital Impressions for Comfortable, Effective Mouthguards
The teeth toward the back of the mouth can be hard for kids to reach when brushing, and their deep grooves can trap food particles, creating a double whammy where their risk of decay is high. That’s why we often recommend dental sealants to protect these at-risk teeth. As part of your child’s visit, we can take a few minutes to painlessly apply a thin composite resin over the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, which helps to seal out harmful debris and bacteria for many years to come.
Silver Diamine Fluoride
If your child has a cavity, it might not necessarily need a filling. When caught early enough, we may be able to stop it in its tracks with silver diamine fluoride instead. This potent form of fluoride eliminates the harmful bacteria while simultaneously reinforcing the enamel, preventing the decay from harming the tooth. In this way, we can help your son or daughter retain as much of their natural smile as possible.
Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards
You probably already know the importance of your child wearing a helmet when playing sports, but their smiles might also be at risk during sporting events. For this reason, we cannot recommend enough that your child wear an athletic mouthguard, also known as a sportsguard, to protect their teeth from injury. Mouthguards are available over the counter, but our custom guards are more comfortable, making your child more likely to wear one.
