Preventive treatments are probably the most important part of a child’s oral healthcare. Tooth decay is the leading chronic infection in children in the United States, even though it is largely preventable. Our treatments will strengthen your child’s teeth and seal them from cavities while they are most susceptible.
- Fluoride Treatments
- Athletic Mouthguards
- Nightguards (for teeth grinding)
- Preventive Space Maintainers
Our fluoride treatments are full of healthy minerals that promote strong enamel growth. Sealants will cover back molars and provide a shield against cavities. When your child starts to be more active in sports, make sure they have a mouthguard to protect their teeth. Children are 60 times more likely to sustain a dental injury without a mouthguard!
Protect your child’s teeth with preventive care
Restorative dentistry is what children are typically afraid of, either because they are already in pain or they don’t understand why anything needs to be done at all. Dr. Blake has a very calm and friendly demeanor, and he has a lot of experience when it comes to children and anxiety. He will gently explain things to them in a way they will understand, and even the most fearful child can’t help but crack a smile after speaking with Dr. Blake.
