Dental Sealants

Cavities commonly impact children because they’re still learning how to properly take care of their teeth. Fortunately, it’s possible to protect their priceless smile against the threat of decay with dental sealants. These are clear layers that we brush over the top of their molars to prevent food debris and bacteria from accumulating in the crevices of their teeth, making brushing more effective. Not only are they unnoticeable, but they can also last for up to four years.  

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Silver diamine fluoride is an FDA-approved cavity treatment that can fight and protect against decay. The process is pain-free and fast—our team will simply brush a clear liquid over the top of a decayed tooth to help remove any bacteria. The fluoride in the substance will also help strengthen your child’s teeth and prevent cavities from developing in that same area in the future. Not only does it not require Dr. Atluri to actually remove the cavity, but it is also a cost-effective and comfortable way to keep your child’s smile healthy.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

If your child participates on a local or school sports team, you may want to consider getting them a customized mouthguard to protect their teeth and jaw from trauma and damage. Our sportsguards are crafted from cushioning materials, like thermoplastic polymer and soft acrylic resin, to help minimize any damage that a potential blow to the mouth or face could cause. Not only could this keep your child out of pain, but it could also help them avoid needing costly dental treatments as a result of damage.

Pulp Therapy

Is your child complaining of a toothache that won’t seem to go away? It could be a sign of an untreated cavity that created a pathway for bacteria to infect the inside of your child’s tooth. To ease their pain and help save their permanent or temporary tooth, Dr. Atluri can access the inside of it and remove the infected pulp, which is a collection of nerves and soft tissues. Our team can then fill their tooth with a supportive material and top it off with a dental crown for added strength and protection.
