“Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond.” - Miguel de Cervantes
Stainless Steel Crowns If your child’s tooth is completely decayed and is unfit for white fillings, then your pediatric dentist will recommend Stainless Steel Crowns. The SSC’s are prefabricated and are cemented onto the teeth to prevent further damage, until and unless it is lost naturally.
Dental Cleaning This procedure aims at thoroughly cleaning your child’s teeth to remove plaque and calculus completely, which otherwise may cause cavities and gum disease. Once the cleaning is done, fluoride will be applied to safeguard the week areas against decay.
Fluoride Fluoride is incorporated into the enamel of teeth in order to make it more resistant to decay. Although fluoride is present in your toothpastes and drinking water, it is always recommended getting the fluoride procedure done for added protection.
Mouth Guards Sports related injuries are very common. Thus, make sure that you protect your child’s smile with mouth guards while playing sports. Mouth guards play an important role in protecting teeth and gums from injury. American Dental Association (ADA) recommends mouth guards to children who specialize in the following sports - basketball, weightlifting or wrestling, boxing, hockey, gymnastics, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, rugby, football, skiing and snowboarding, skydiving, soccer, surfing, skateboarding, volleyball and water polo.
