Children’s Dentistry from an Austin Family Dentist
It’s important to find a dentist you can trust, especially when you’re responsible for the health of little smiles. Our Austin general dental office provides children’s dentistry so that your entire family can have their needs met in just one convenient location. Our caring and gentle team will make sure your child is at ease and receives the best possible care, including checkups, professional hygiene, and dental sealants that help keep teeth strong.
Custom mouthguards can protect your smile from serious damage. Sportsguards are protective devices that prevent athletes from experiencing dental injuries while playing sports or working out. A nightguard can eliminate discomfort and tooth wear from nighttime grinding. These mouthguards will keep your smile healthy over the long hall.
If you need a mouthguard for sports activities, you can choose from ready-made, mouth-formed, or custom-fit options. Patients who wear a nightguard to prevent teeth grinding will need a custom appliance. In this case, Dr. Fan will take an impression of your teeth so that the dental lab can create a device designed specifically for your mouth.
We provide thorough care to patients in all stages of life. Call today and schedule an appointment to discuss mouthguards with Dr. Fan needs. Residents from across the Austin area are welcome to visit our practice.
Dental Sealants for Young Patients
Our youngest patients receive the same attention and concern as everyone else. We recommend that you bring your children in around age three so that they can become comfortable with visiting the dentist. When children learn the importance of good oral hygiene at a young age, their journey to lifelong dental health is more likely to be successful. Dr. Fan suggests fluoride treatments and dental sealants for children to prevent tooth decay and premature tooth loss.
Dental sealants are thin layers of plastic that fill in the grooves on back teeth. Because children have a harder time reaching these areas in their mouths, the molars are prone to cavities. The dental sealants create a physical barrier for food and cavity-causing bacteria, which prevents tooth decay from developing. With proper home care, your children's dental sealants can last up to ten years.
