Pediatric tooth decay can be treated in various ways depending on the severity of the problem. We offer many options for our young patients as including various options for sedation.
Fillings and Crowns
Fillings can treat a small amount of decay in a tooth. For more severe decay where so much of the tooth is compromised, a crown is placed on top of a tooth. These are typically placed on back teeth and sometimes canines.
Pulpal Therapy (Nerve Treatment)
Nerve treatment is for when a cavity is so severe that it has affected a nerve. The nerve is cleaned out and a crown is typically placed on it. This is to ensure the strength and integrity of the tooth.
Pediatric Cosmetic Dentistry
In the event of a tooth fracture, malformed tooth, or tooth discoloration, we can repair teeth with an esthetic, tooth-colored composite material.
