It’s very important to stay active, but you shouldn’t have to put your teeth at risk along the way! For example, if you like to get your exercise in through contact sports, including basketball, hockey, football, or another activity where you’re likely to experience a bad fall or two, you must wear a mouthguard or sportsguard. Our dental office can create an oral appliance customized to fit your mouth exactly, ensuring that it feels comfortable to wear and offers proper protection. Store-bought solutions largely can’t compare and we want all patients to walk off the field with their smile complete!
If your child has physical or mental limitations that make dental care difficult, just know that we are here to help. Litchfield Smiles cares about your child’s comfort and ensuring their quality of care remains high, which is why we ask that you call us ahead of time so we can prepare proper accommodations when it’s time for their appointment. In the event they should need sedation prior to treatment, we’ll discuss the process in greater detail once you arrive.
When a tooth becomes severely damaged, it can easily become exposed to bacteria and lead to an infection. With pulp therapy, our dental office can not only treat the affected tooth to relieve discomfort, but save the tooth from a potential extraction. Whether your child has a baby tooth in need of care or a permanent one, we’ll make them feel comfortable and prepared for treatment so they can live a healthy and happy life.
