If you have a history of tooth loss or gum disease, your children could be at a greater risk as well! Even the finest brushing and flossing practices can’t always keep the cavities at bay. If your child complains of tooth pain, this may be an indication of a hole that needs to be filled.

Pediatric dentists now have more filling and restoration options than ever before thanks to the latest technologies! A silver-colored powder called amalgam (a special blend of metals) was once the preferred material for most permanent tooth fillings. However, other materials, such as composite resins, are gaining popularity. Resins bind to the teeth, preventing the filling from falling out, and they may also be used to repair teeth affected by injuries or diseases such as cleft palate. Since resins are often tooth-colored, they are thought to be more appealing.
Dentists also use stainless steel or ceramic crowns in cases of fracturing, severe deterioration, or malformation of baby teeth. Dental Crowns keep the tooth in place while stopping decay from spreading. However, every child may have different needs when it comes to treating their dental problem. That is why we at GoKids Pediatric Dentistry offer customized treatment for each child based on their needs.
There is a lot of information on the web, and yet it’s hard to know what is right for your child.
