As a parent, you naturally want your child to be able to enjoy all the benefits that come with a healthy, beautiful smile for the rest of their life. We therefore recommend that you start taking them to the dentist as early in life as possible – ideally no later than their first birthday. You can call Forest Falls Dental in Yarmouth to set up a children's dentistry appointment for your little one; we’ll give their smile the quality care and attention that it deserves, and we’ll take the time to teach them the best oral hygiene practices.

Dental Sealants

No child is born knowing how to brush and floss; these skills take a lot of time and practice to fully master. As such, it may be necessary to take extra precautions to protect the hard-to-reach molars and premolars in your little one’s mouth. If you visit our dental office, our team can apply a dental sealant to the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth. Dental sealants work by covering the pits and crevices in the tooth, protecting them from bacteria as well as food particles. Once in place, dental sealants can provide many years of protection from cavities.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Silver diamine fluoride was approved for use in the United States in 2014, and since that time it has grown in popularity as a way to treat tooth decay in children. The fluoride can make the tooth in question more resistant to further decay while the silver can be used to fight the harmful bacteria that caused the cavity to appear in the first place. We may recommend silver diamine fluoride as a noninvasive way to treat any cavities that we find in your child’s smile.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

Different sports can potentially require different types of safety gear. However, no matter what kind of sport your child plays, you should always make sure they have a reliable mouthguard that can keep their teeth and gums safe if they happen to get hit in the mouth. Please note that our athletic mouthguards are not like the kind you might find at the store. They can be personalized with the patient’s smile in mind, making them more comfortable to wear.
