Kid's Dental Restorations
Children's dental restorations at Rochester Pediatric Dentistry
Restorative dental work is extremely important when it comes to treating cavities, oral injuries, and other situations.
In our welcoming, safe, and nurturing office environment, we utilize the latest techniques to ensure your child gets the best treatment.
When are restorations necessary?
Many people ask why it is necessary to fix baby teeth. If cavities in baby teeth are not treated, there is a risk that the decay could reach the nerve which could eventually result in an abscess. Baby teeth are also important placeholders for adult teeth.
As teeth cannot heal themselves, damage in the form of a crack, chip, or cavitation needs to be treated in order to preserve the tooth and reduce the likelihood of further damage that could lead to an infection and possibly a preventable extraction.
Pediatric dental fillings
When fillings are needed, we offer mercury-free white fillings.
Pediatric dental crowns
Sometimes the decayed area on a tooth is very large, or there may be a large developmental defect. In this case, we might recommend a pediatric crown. At our office, we offer safe, stainless steel dental crowns for children who need their entire tooth structure protected. A crown is a restorative solution that covers a tooth completely.
The crown protects the tooth until the baby tooth is ready to come out, at that time the crown comes out with the tooth naturally.
