Restorative Care

Restorative dental care for children focuses on repairing and preserving the health and function of their teeth. These treatments aim to treat dental decay, injuries, or developmental issues, allowing children to regain their beautiful smiles and maintain optimal oral health.

Crowns

If your child’s cavity is too large to restore with a tooth-colored filling, a crown may be recommended. Crowns help protect the baby teeth, providing structure for the tooth. Crowning a tooth also maintains the space, allowing the eventual permanent tooth to erupt properly. If you are concerned about a silver crown, talk to Dr. Lee about the possibility of a tooth-colored crown!

Baby Root Canals

Baby root canals are often needed when the cavity approaches the tooth’s nerve. This procedure stops the progress of the cavity and minimizes the chances of an infection or abscess. The procedure is completed by cleaning out the center of the tooth where the nerve lives and placing soothing medicine. The tooth is then protected by placing a crown.

Space Maintenance

The baby teeth serve as space holders for the permanent teeth. With the loss of a baby tooth, neighboring teeth start migrating into that vacant space, potentially causing problems as your child grows. This loss may lead to the need for extensive orthodontic treatment at a later age. A space maintainer is placed in that area to hold the space open so that the adult tooth can erupt in a more appropriate position.

Extractions

Your child may need to have a tooth extracted. Most often, extractions are indicated due to infection or for orthodontic purposes. Dr. Lee will review your child’s needs and discuss treatment options with you.

Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)

SDF contains silver, which has antimicrobial properties that kill the bacteria causing tooth decay, and fluoride, which helps to strengthen the tooth enamel. The application of SDF to a cavity arrests the decay process, hardens the softened dentin, and prevents further damage to the tooth.
