Cavity Prevention

Sealants

At Encino Family Dental, we advocate preventive and proactive dentistry. Sealants are a quick and simple way to prevent the formation of cavities in children and adolescents. These are used to fill in the deep grooves and pits on teeth.

By smoothing the surface of teeth, sealants make them less likely to trap cavity-causing bacteria. This doubles as a great way for kids to have clean teeth without the constant need to bug them to brush. Sealants are best applied when the child’s teeth are just coming in. This method offers the most protection.

Fluoride

This is also an important tool in the prevention of tooth decay. Fluoride is a topical agent that has been proven in countless studies to reduce the incidence of cavities in children and adults alike.

Easing Dental Anxiety

Visiting the dentist is known to evoke feelings of stress and anxiety in some people. Although we always strive to create a comfortable environment, sometimes patients still find it difficult to relax. Not to worry! We have various options that will help patients reduce their dental anxiety and stress.

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as laughing gas, this is a powerful yet safe tool used to eliminate the stress that comes with being in the dentist’s chair. This can be used on patients of any age, reducing their anxiety and making the experience less stressful for their parents.

The effects of this substance are short-lived and easily reversible. Once the dental work is completed, all you have to do is inhale pure oxygen for a few minutes, and you’ll be able to return to your normal routine.

Anti-Anxiety Medication

Anti-anxiety medication in the form of a small tablet can be taken shortly before a dental treatment. Its effects range from relaxation to mild amnesia. We can talk about this option with you. Our goal is to make your time in the dentist’s chair as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
