Sealants dramatically reduce the number of cavities that may develop during childhood. Deep grooves run into the center of the teeth on the chewing surface of the molars. If the grooves in permanent molars are sealed at a young age, the risk of decay developing on the chewing surfaces dramatically decreases. The sealant material fills in the grooves to create a smooth surface and make the biting surface easier for little ones to clean. The resin material flowed over the grooves is quickly sealed with a blue activating light. Within a few minutes, your child’s teeth are protected against cavities. Sealants last several years and may need to be repaired or replaced periodically. But research confirms a 90% reduction in tooth decay along the chewing surface in sealed molars.

Following the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we suggest infants should come in for their first oral exam between the ages of six months to one year old. Our team will review proper diet, age-appropriate hygiene, and go over pacifier use to make sure your child’s oral health starts strong and stays strong. Schedule Your Appointment
A frenum or frenulum is a small piece of tissue that attaches either the upper lip to the gum tissue or the tongue to the floor of the mouth. In some children, this frenum or frenulum is attached too tightly and can pull on the lips or gums causing tongue-tie, problems nursing, speech issues, and other concerns. During a frenectomy, we make a small incision in the frenum or frenulum, allowing for greater movement of the lips. Results are instant. Schedule Your Appointment


Silver Diamine Fluoride, or SDF, is an FDA-approved antibiotic liquid that can stop decay from progressing. While this treatment probably won’t prevent the need for a restoration in the future, it has been proven effective in stopping further decay until either the baby tooth is lost, or a more permanent means of repair can be performed.

It’s estimated that over 20 million children take part in one after-school sport or another. With that amount of children engaging in sports and other activities like skiing, gymnastics, and martial arts, there is a higher chance of injury. Did you know that up to 20% of these injuries are due to fractured or otherwise damaged teeth? Our team can create a sports mouthguard for your child to protect their smile. After an impression of your child’s teeth is taken, they will fabricate a new mouthguard molded to custom-fit their unique smile. Schedule Your Appointment
