Preventative pediatric dental care

Gently protecting tiny teeth

At OPD Smiles, we put a big focus on preventive care. After all, the best cavity is one that never happens! Using regular checkups, cleanings, and preventative services, we can safeguard your child from everyday dental problems.

Dental sealants

It can be difficult for young children to learn to brush their teeth properly – especially their back teeth. This is why we recommend dental sealants as a swift and easy preventative measure against tooth decay.

Silver diamine fluoride treatment

Regular exposure to fluoride helps make your teeth stronger and less susceptible to cavities. Unfortunately, many of us now drink fluoride-free water, so we aren’t getting enough of this important natural mineral.

To correct this, our team recommends professional silver diamine fluoride applications during your child’s checkups and cleanings. This simple process only takes a few minutes, and the long-lasting benefits are well worth it.

Digital X-rays

Keeping your child safe is our number one priority. That’s why we use all-digital X-rays which reduce radiation exposure by up to 80% compared to traditional X-rays. Our digital X-rays don't require the use of hazardous chemicals, and the images are ready to view within seconds.

Sports mouthguards

If your child is passionate about contact sports, it’s important to keep their smile safe from harm. Our custom-made mouthguards provide durable protection for growing teeth and gums so that you can relax on the sidelines.
