The doctors at Pediatric Dental World are experts in treating tooth decay. Cavities are the #1 most common preventable childhood disease. Despite your best efforts, your child may develop a few cavities as they grow, and it’s important to treat them right away.
If you suspect your child has a cavity in Highland Village, contact us online to schedule a consultation at our office right away.
Dental fillings are the best way to treat cavities. By removing the decayed material and replacing it with an inert, strong, and tooth-like filling, you can halt the progression of the cavity. This restores your child’s smile and eliminates the discomfort of a cavity.
Not only that, but early treatment with restorative dentistry like a filling also prevents further complications like tooth infection. This can save you a lot of time, money, and stress. For all of these reasons, you should get in touch with the team at Pediatric Dental World right away if you suspect your child has a cavity.
All of this is true of baby teeth, too. Although your child’s baby teeth will fall out naturally as they grow, it’s still important to restore decayed baby teeth with fillings. Failing to do so will result in a lot of pain and discomfort if your child’s tooth becomes infected. Tooth infections may also result in premature tooth loss, which may cause problems with your child’s oral development as their permanent adult teeth erupt.
Our goal is to provide your child with a caring, comfortable, and gentle dental experience in Highland Village. We offer tooth-like composite fillings and sedation for every patient.
Tooth-like composite fillings are the best way to restore and rebuild your child’s tooth. These fillings are made from a blend of dental resin and glass particles, and are very strong, durable, and life-like.
With sedation dentistry, such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), even nervous and anxious kids can feel comfortable while they get the expert dental care they need in Highland Village.
No. The filling process is minimally invasive, and will not cause any pain or discomfort. We use the latest numbing products and offer sedation to keep your child feeling completely safe and comfortable throughout their treatment at Pediatric Dental World.
Wondering why we prefer composite fillings rather than metal amalgam fillings? Here are a few benefits.
While metal fillings discolor the teeth, composite fillings don’t. They will be matched to your child’s surrounding teeth, and will look and feel totally natural.
Composite fillings are suitable for treating both baby teeth and adult teeth, and can be used to restore the front and rear teeth, making them highly versatile.
Compared to metal fillings, composite fillings require the removal of less tooth material, streamlining the process and helping your child stay comfortable.
