Dental Sealants

A child’s molars and premolars need added protection. The reason is that these teeth are the hardest to reach, often leaving them vulnerable to bacteria and decay. Dental sealants can be applied to reduce the risk of cavities because of the protective barrier they provide. Applied to chewing surfaces, dental sealants keep harmful debris out so that these teeth have the best chance to thrive as a child grows closer to adolescence.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Although cavity prevention is the goal at Roosevelt Dental, these pesky developments are not always caught in time. When one forms in young smiles, a tooth-colored filling may not be what your child is ready for. Instead, we can use silver diamine fluoride (SDF), which is applied to the cavity-stricken tooth. The silver works to kill any existing bacteria, while the fluoride helps to stop the spread of decay and strengthen the existing tooth enamel. This is a great solution should your child need more time before receiving a tooth-colored filling.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

Sports-related injuries are some of the most common dental emergencies dentists see. While not all instances can be avoided, equipping your child with a custom athletic mouthguard can save everyone a trip to the emergency dentist’s office. This protective barrier minimizes the amount of pressure placed on teeth and gums when sudden impact occurs. Not only does this ensure that your child stays safe during the game, but you’ll enjoy greater peace of mind as well.
