Why Choose Cove Choice Dental for Children’s Dentistry?

Dental Checkups
& Teeth Cleanings

Even though your child’s baby teeth will fall out eventually, they still need to be taken care of in order to protect your little one’s long-term oral health. You should bring your child to the dentist’s for a checkup and cleaning every six months. While we look for cavities and remove plaque, we can teach your children the basics of good oral health care and show them how to brush and floss well so that they can carry those habits into the future.

Dental Sealants

Child receiving dental sealants

Children often have a harder time brushing than adults, and that’s especially true when it comes to the teeth that are hard to reach with a toothbrush. The molars near the back of the mouth are filled with cracks and grooves where tooth decay can develop unseen. To keep these vulnerable teeth safe, we can apply a thin layer of plastic known as a dental sealant, which will provide additional protection against decay for about three to five years.

Fluoride Treatments

Is your child getting enough fluoride to keep their teeth healthy and strong? They should normally be getting all they need from the water they drink and their toothpaste, but in the event that their teeth still need additional protection, we can quickly apply some fluoride to their teeth during their regular checkup. Depending on your little one’s needs, they might require a fluoride treatment as often as every three months, or they may only need one a year.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

If your child has already developed a cavity, we can save their tooth by removing the decay and placing a filling to make up for the lost enamel. You may have misgivings about forcing your child to live with a piece of highly noticeable metal in their smile. Nowadays, though, we typically use tooth-colored materials for fillings instead so that your little one’s peers will only ever notice their brilliant, completely natural-looking teeth!

Athletic Mouthguards

Many athletes suffer injuries to the mouth and jaw, and in several cases, they even lose their teeth. If your child plays any kind of sport or enjoys any kind of physical activity with a high risk of accidents, we recommend getting an athletic mouthguard for them as soon as possible. Getting a mouthguard from your dentist instead of from the store helps ensure that the appliance will fit properly in your mouth and give your teeth and gums the best protection possible.
