We Care for Their Teeth with Sealants, Sports Mouthguards and the Cari-Free System
Kids have amazing smiles! In fact, children laugh around 400 times a day! Don’t you wish they could keep those shining, healthy smiles for life?
They can! Here at Huisman Family Dentistry, our careful, caring children’s dentistry will put both you and your child at ease so that your kids can actually enjoy their visits.
We know that the right oral health care starts early. That’s why we offer pediatric treatments for the health and care of teeth, gums, and bite, to keep their natural strength and beauty without the use of metals. We use the most conservative, tooth preserving methods available. Your child’s confident smile – we want to keep it that way.
The Cari-Free System is one of the most advanced and proactive ways we have of screening for possible decay before it starts. The Cari-Free system allows Dr. Huisman to test for and treat bacterial infections before they cause tooth decay, promoting long-term dental health, instead of simply treating symptoms by filling cavities. It can also help children understand how important at-home dental hygiene is for the prevention of cavities and gum infections.
Sports Mouth Guards
To keep teeth healthy and whole during sports or other physical activity, we recommend mouth guards to protect those precious teeth from injury.
Every year, more than 3.5 million children 14 and under are injured while playing sports. That is why the American Dental Association recommends that all kids participating in sports wear a protective mouth guard.
Mouth guards help cushion blows that might otherwise cause broken teeth, and injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. They also may reduce the severity and incidence of concussions.
Because our sports mouth guards are custom created from molds taken of your child’s teeth, they are much more protective and more comfortable which encourages consistent use.
