As a parent, we know you would rather prevent a dental problem for your children than treat one. And this is the goal of Little GiGi’s preventive treatments.
We offer several types of treatment designed to keep your children’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free.
Fluoride is a compound that contains fluoride, a natural element and it’s usage can prevent tooth decay. It works by inhibiting loss of minerals from tooth enamel and encourages remineralisation of the tooth. Flouride also has positive effect on bacterias in mouth.
A Little GiGi expert will consider all circumstances, including the age of the child, before suggesting the best Fluoride treatment.
Sealants protect the grooved and pitted surfaces of the teeth, especially the chewing surfaces of back teeth. Sealants are made of clear or shaded plastic and used to keep the teeth cavity free – meaning protecting your child’s teeth from bacteria and food build up in cavities.
If cared for properly, Sealants will last for years, meaning in most cases they will only be applied once.
Oral Habit Correction
Poor Oral Habits such as tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing, mouth breathing and thumb suckling are the proven causes of teeth overcrowding. By addressing these underlying causes, often without the need for braces, allowing the formation of straight teeth naturally.
Mouth guards can offer protection to patients with persistent grinding (bruxism) and other habits such as jaw clenching. The “right guard” requires careful evaluation and becomes a part of the patient’s routine check-up.
Athletic mouth guards are another common reason for mouth guards. They can prevent serious dental injuries to active kids.
