Sealing of fissures
Dental sealants are plastic resins that bond and harden in the deep grooves on your tooth’s surface. When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor plaque. With sealants, brushing your teeth becomes easier and more effective.
Local application of fluoride
A topical fluoride treatment is applied at the dentist office after your child has received a professional cleaning. Fluoride can re-mineralize small imperfections in the tooth enamel by attracting calcium to the teeth.
Splints and night guards
SSplints and night guards are used to treat and prevent irreversible damage caused by bruxism. Splints can prevent the excessive wear of tooth surfaces, reduce muscle pain, alleviate headaches, decrease tooth sensitivity, prevent permanent joint damage, and lessen clenching behavior.
