Why Choose Goyal Dentistry for Children’s Dentistry?
- Dental-Insurance Friendly
- We Love Collaborating with Parents
Is your child highly susceptible to cavities because they’re still getting used to taking care of their smile? Dental sealants are clear shields that we can paint over the biting surface of their molars to reduce their risk of decay. Food particles that attract harmful oral bacteria can become caught in the deep pits and grooves of their molars, making them difficult to brush away. With dental sealants, your child will be able to effectively clean their pearly whites and drastically reduce their risk of developing cavities.
Silver Diamine Fluoride
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is an FDA-approved treatment that we use to stop dental decay in its tracks and prevent future harm to teeth that have already had cavities. It’s a topical application that we can apply directly to your child’s affected tooth, and it’s completely pain-free and can be completed during their routine checkup and cleaning so you don’t have to bring them back in for another visit.
Does your child participate in local or school athletics? Store-bought mouthguards may be less expensive, but they can’t always be trusted to protect your child’s small smile. Dr. Goyal custom-crafts strong, durable sportsguards for children to protect their teeth, tongue, jaw, and mouth from the threat of trauma. Plus, because it’s made to fit their unique dental structure, the mouthguard will make it easier to breathe with as they run, jump, and catch.
An estimated four to 11 percent of newborns have a lip or tongue-tie, which is when the piece of skin that connects their tongue to the floor of their mouth or their lips to their gums is overgrown. This can make it hard for them to latch while breastfeeding, cause digestion issues, and as they grow older, cause speech problems and even gaps between their teeth. Dr. Goyal can remove this excess tissue to provide them with the full function of their lips and tongue as well as prevent additional problems down the road.
