You probably know that the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you get a check-up every six months in order prevent cavities and other dental problems, but did you know that the same goes for your child? That’s right: children need to head to the Dentist just as often as you do.
If your child has a cavity, a filling may be the best way to ensure that the damage doesn’t get any worse. At PPS Kids, we use aesthetically pleasing, tooth-colored plastic called composite fillings to repair the surfaces of teeth. Not old-fashioned silver fillings. Not only are these better looking, they’re also better for your child since they don’t contain mercury and you don’t have to remove as much tooth structure to hold the composite filling in place.
Crowns are used to restore tooth structure on a tooth that has had some of its soft tissue removed in order to stop an infection (a pulpotomy)/. Crowns are also used on a tooth that has too many surfaces of decay to be restored with a filling.
This is the last resort when it comes to dealing with your child’s dental health. However, if there is a tooth infection, a cavity, or decay, we will probably need to remove the tooth if there will not be enough structure to hold a crown or filling.
