All caries diagnosed must be treated. The caries begin with fluoride treatment, but most carious lesions need to be restored with the most appropriate restoration material for your child. In cases of deep carious lesions, a pulp treatment must be performed before restoration and for the teeth too dilapidated it is necessary to protect and restore the tooth with a pedodontic crown.

We always try to choose the best catering material for your child. We mainly use two white and aesthetic materials: Glass ionomer cement (CVI) or composite.

The advantages of composites are their aesthetics close to that of fabrics teeth and their resistance. With these treatments, your child will quickly regain a bright white smile.

Restoration materials have evolved a lot and bring much more than resistance:

  • aesthetics close to that of dental tissues

My child practices a sport, how to protect his teeth?With a mouthguard that is the ideal airbag for the teeth. This is a tailor-made gutter that absorbs shocks. Like elbow pads, knee pads and headgear are needed in many sports, the mouthguard is also very protective. Yet we often forget the teeth! Whether it's mountain biking, horseback riding, rollerblading or combat sports, a slight but misplaced shot in the teeth can damage them. Apart from the pains, hassle and aesthetic problems, it is possible that the treatment is expensive and unpleasant. To avoid getting there, it is better to bring a mouthguard.

In addition, the American Association for Pediatric dentistry has stated that it is indicated that children wear gutters while playing football, hockey, baseball and basketball, and skating, skateboarding, biking, horse riding and skiing.

There are two options: the custom gutter and the prefabricated gutter. The tailor-made gutter offers the most comfort and fits perfectly, giving the best protection. We make a print and our laboratory then prepares the tailor-made gutter. This mouth guard covers all teeth, protects the jawbone and can even be used when your child wears orthodontic rings.

The prefabricated gutter is a cheaper alternative. It can be purchased at a sports shop. However, US studies show that teeth are less well protected. Plus, it's not tailor-made for your child, so the comfort of the fit is lost. Ask us for advice ...

We will be happy to help you choose the best gutter for your child.
