Pediatric Dental Fillings for Cavities
Even when best efforts are made, kids in the Browns Summit, North Carolina area, can still develop cavities. When your child has a cavity, Dr. Sona J. Isharani and the team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry offer white tooth-colored fillings. White fillings are a conservative restorative dental treatment that will restore your child’s tooth and stop the spreading of decay.
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is used to treat damaged teeth. One of the most common forms of restorative dental treatment is filling placement. Once dental decay has been removed and the tooth disinfected, the resulting cavity will be filled with a white filling. Our white fillings are aesthetically pleasing while providing effective restoration to the tooth.
Triad Pediatric Dentistry uses a safe, non-toxic composite resin for our fillings. The white filling is applied to the tooth directly before being shaped, hardened, and bonded to the tooth. Unlike metal fillings of the past, our white fillings conform to the shape of the tooth, requiring minimal drilling and tooth preparation. We remove any decay and place the filling all within a single, easy appointment.
Why Treat Children’s Cavities?
Do you wonder why treating children’s teeth is important if they will lose those same teeth in a few years? If so, Dr. Isharani would like to stress the importance of pediatric dental care. Getting a cavity is more than just having a tooth that has been eroded. This erosion is most often the result of dental decay. This oral disease will continue to spread until treatment is received. Infection can occur and even spread from the mouth to other body parts via your child’s bloodstream, leading to more severe health concerns.
In addition, dental health problems can be quite painful and lead to eventual tooth loss. Tooth loss, even baby teeth, can lead to severe developmental issues down the road as your child’s baby teeth act as a guide for future growth and development. Think of your child’s baby teeth as temporary space holders for their eventual permanent teeth.
