Children’s Dentistry at SAV Dental

Boy and mom at dentistHelping children to attain and maintain healthy smiles are two of our greatest passions. Our caring team of oral healthcare professionals provide high-quality services and ensure that kids have a positive experience at every visit.

Dental Exams and Hygiene

Preventative care is vital as routine checkups and cleanings allow us to identify cavities or other dental problems when they’re smaller and easier to treat. Our dental assistant enjoys educating children on healthy oral hygiene habits.

Fissure Sealants

Thin plastic coatings, sealants protect your child’s teeth from cavities before decay begins. The sealants work by preventing bacteria from collecting inside of the deep grooves and fissures of the back teeth (molars). Having sealants is painless and quick. It just takes a few minutes to apply each one. We can include them as part of your child’s next checkup appointment!

Fluoride Treatments

These treatments can safeguard young smiles by protecting healthy tooth enamel. A natural mineral, fluoride makes teeth more decay-resistant and promotes optimal oral health.

Orthodontics

If your child has crooked or gapped teeth, we feature traditional braces and ClearCorrect (which is suitable for teens). We have a good relationship with local orthodontists if your child requires more progressive orthodontic therapy.

Oral Hygiene Education

Because most dental health problems can be prevented, we’ll show your child how to keep their teeth sparkling clean. Daily brushing and flossing habits begin early in childhood, so it’s essential that your child performs these hygiene actions correctly.

Protective Mouthguards

If your child engages in contact sports, it’s vital that they shield their smile with a mouthguard. That’s because athletic activities are one of the leading causes of oral injuries and dental emergencies. Wearing a custom-fitted (versus a boil and bite variety) mouthguard prevents broken or knocked-out teeth. As over-the-counter mouthguards can shift in the mouth, custom-made ones fit better, providing superior protection.

Restorative Fillings and Crowns

Despite our best efforts, sometimes cavities can still occur. If your child has a cavity, it’s vital that we treat it as early as possible. By intervening quickly, the risk of decay spreading to adjacent teeth is reduced. We feature tooth-coloured fillings and temporary crowns to help your child smile confidently.
