Benefits of Crowns:
When a tooth has extensive decay that a tradition filling cannot restore, a full coverage crown in needed. These crowns can restore a tooth to its proper form and function, and is important to keep the spacing until the permanent tooth comes in. Most back teeth are restored with stainless steel crowns, and we offer all white zirconia crowns for the front.
Benefits of Mouth Guards:
When a child begins participating in athletic events, a mouth guard can be an important piece of athletic gear. It should be worn during any sport or activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth. A custom-made mouth guard developed by a pediatric dentist can help absorb the shock that may cause broken teeth and trauma to the lip, tongue, and jaw.
Nitrous Oxide/Oral Sedation
Benefits to sedation:
Commonly referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a mild sedative and can help relax a child during dental treatment. The child will remain awake during the procedure. It is also helpful in reducing the gag reflex, which can help the child receive treatment in a comfortable manner.
