Protect Las Vegas Kids’ Teeth With Custom Mouthguards

Protect Las Vegas Kids

At Providence Dental we see many Las Vegas children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. When a tooth is knocked out or broken, speaking, eating, and smiling can become very difficult.

I am Steven Do and I recommend that Las Vegas parents encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about custom mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most Las Vegas sporting goods stores are also an option, they just might not fit as well.

If you or your child is in need of restorative dentistry due to an injury or an accident, my staff and I at Providence Dental offer many restorative procedures.

Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.

If a crown or dental implant is required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at Providence Dental will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, color, and translucency.

Providence Dental has been offering family and pediatric dentistry to the people of Nevada since 2016. My staff and I would love to serve you and your family. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.

 

 


Has Your Child Visited A Dentist?

Las Vegas Kid

Hello Nevada! Today’s Providence Dental blog is for new Las Vegas, Providence, NW Las Vegas, and Centennial Hills parents. We know that your child’s health and safety is your top priority. That’s why you baby-proof your home, serve healthy foods, and buckle them tightly in their car seat before you pull out of your driveway.

I’m dentist Steven Do. I want to remind that oral health is an intrinsic component of overall health. Teeth and gum condition can affect speech development, nutrition, and self-confidence. From birth, there are important things parents can do to promote healthy teeth – even before your son’s or daughter’s first tooth erupts.

At Providence Dental, we maintain a kid-friendly environment so our youngest patients look forward to dental check-ups and never develop the fear of dentists that was more common in generations past. I love working with you and your child to ensure a healthy smile for life and I can assure you that my convenient staff will help your child have a positive experience.

We recommend bringing your child in for a first exam before age one, or when their first tooth erupts. During the visit, we can discuss pediatric dental issues such as fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing techniques, orthodontia, and dental sealants. Dental sealants are composed of a plastic material that is applied to children’s teeth. The sealants bond to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, mainly in the pits and fissures and protects the enamel against acids and plaque.

Las Vegas children’s dentists also advise Nevada parents about pacifier use, thumb-sucking and other habits that can affect your child’s tooth development and oral health. Remember to call us immediately at 702-984-2547 if your child (or any member of your family) experiences a tooth injury.
