Children’s Care

Space Maintainers

Our trained dentists can recognize where a space maintainer would be best suited, maximizing the benefits for each patient. While many cases may benefit from the placement of a space maintainer, not all instances require them due to the growth and development of the teeth surrounding the extracted tooth. Whether the tooth is lost or missing, our dentist will make sure that, if needed, the space is held to allow for the proper eruption of the permanent tooth. To do so, we may recommend a space maintainer. This device keeps the space open until the permanent tooth erupts. There are several types of space maintainers available, including both removable and fixed options. We will ensure that your child receives the type of space maintainer that best fits their unique needs. For more information on the available space maintainers and their benefits, contact us at Edmonton West Dental.

Sealants and Fluoride Treatment

Sealants are typically applied to children’s teeth as a preventive measure against tooth decay after their permanent teeth have appeared. However, adults can also receive sealants on healthy teeth. It is more common to seal permanent teeth rather than baby teeth, but every patient has unique needs, and we will recommend sealants on a case-by-case basis. When a tooth is closed, the tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbour bacteria and plaque. With sealants, brushing your teeth becomes more accessible and more effective.

Fluoride helps the tooth’s outer surface, the enamel, stay strong and fight against the acids that cause cavities and tooth decay. Decisions concerning the administration of fluoride are based on the unique needs of each patient.
