Dental Exams and Digital X-Rays
Establishment of regular comprehensive checkups and x-rays are fundamental for the best possible oral health.

Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
At Sterling Family Dentistry, we know that children are busy with their own adventures. That’s why Dr. Mann and his team offer mouth guards to help your child stay safe on the field during athletic practices and competitions.
We make custom mouth guards that fit precisely to your child’s teeth and bite. These are extremely comfortable and provide superior protection. A properly fitting mouth guard can lessen the chance of a dental trauma and protect your child’s smile!
