Dental Sealants

Maximum protection against food particles and bacteria are essential, especially for teeth with deep pits and grooves. With dental sealants, these clear coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces to keep harmful debris out. As a protective barrier against tooth decay, you and your child can rest easier knowing these hard-to-reach teeth are better safeguarded while they learn to improve their oral hygiene habits with brushing and flossing at home.

Athletic Mouthguards/Sportsguards

Whether your child is a star athlete or enjoys participating in non-competitive sports, keeping their mouth protective is important, especially since a majority of dental emergencies can be tied back to sports-related injuries. With a customized mouthguard, though, they can wear a comfortable oral appliance that offers maximum protection against sudden pressure. Worn along the upper row of teeth, it absorbs excessive force so that their smile doesn’t suffer the same fate as those that remain unprotected.

Pulp Therapy

Although root canals are commonly performed on adults, children, too, can suffer the same discomfort and unpleasantry caused by damaged or decayed pulp. This is why we provide what is known as pulp therapy. Removing the problem area of the tooth not only alleviates the pain but also prevents the need for tooth extraction. To add another layer of protection, we’ll place a customized dental crown over the tooth, allowing it to strengthen over time while avoiding future reinfection.

Sedation Dentistry for Kids

At Anthony C Garza DDS, we know visiting the dentist can be hard for young patients. To minimize fears and improve experiences, we offer nitrous oxide sedation for kids. Creating a calming and comfortable environment, this mild form of treatment helps to alleviate anxiety and instead, allows for necessary dental care. And the best part about it is that the effects wear off quickly, allowing your child to resume normal activity immediately following their appointment.
