Where to begin?
Dental check-ups are important opportunities to create a good foundation for on-going oral hygiene and give parents the chance to ask Dr. Elliott any questions they have about their child's oral health.
Sealants, Fluoride, and Mouth Guards
In addition to regular examinations and cleanings, Dr. Elliott may recommend further services to enhance your child's oral health. Other services offered include sealants, fluoride, and mouth guards.
Fluoride treatments are essential to preventing tooth decay for both children, teens and adults. They are included in a regular dental examination and cleaning.
Mouth guards, "night guards," or athletic guards, may be recommended for children that constantly grind their teeth at night, or clench their jaws to protect them from excessive wear and tear. Mouth guards can also protect the teeth and can prevent severe dental trauma for kids that are extremely active in sports.
Children can suffer cavities, broken teeth, or malformed teeth just like adults.
The professional dental team of Dr. Elliott's are trained to provide restorative care to meet the specific needs of children while helping them to remain calm and comfortable.
