Dental Sealants

As a parent, it is important that you oversee your child’s oral hygiene habits to ensure they are brushing and flossing correctly. Unfortunately, back teeth are often left neglected because they can be hard to reach. With dental sealants, though, these plastic coatings can serve as a barrier against harmful bacteria and food particles that will try to penetrate the crevices of these teeth. In a single appointment, we can protect your child’s smile for up to 10 years.

Pulp Therapy

An infection that reaches the innermost layer of a tooth can spell disaster for your child’s smile. This is why pulp therapy is essential. Targeting the uncomfortable and unhealthy pulp that exists inside a tooth, Dr. Savas and Dr. Donohue can remove it and clear away any bacteria found in nearby canals to create a healthier, decay-free tooth. After being filled with a biocompatible solution, we can top the tooth with a customized dental crown for added protection and strength.

Athletic Mouthguards/ Sportsguards

No child athlete should be without a customized sportsguard. This uniquely made appliance offers maximum protection against unnecessary pressure placed on the teeth, gums, and bone. By absorbing a hard hit or fall, it minimizes the impact so that it lowers the chances of a knocked-out or damaged tooth. A customized mouthguard can also be beneficial if your child doesn’t play sports but instead, suffers from bruxism. By wearing this kind of device at night, while asleep, teeth can remain protected from each other, reducing wear and tear as well as chronic jaw pain.
