Dental RestorationsDental Restorations


Composites

Composite fillings have superior characteristics to traditional silver fillings. In addition, they match the color of the tooth. When decay is discovered early, we are able to use a filling.

 

Crowns

Stainless steel crowns are used as the restoration of choice when decay is too large to be fixed with a filling or when cavities are on several surfaces of the teeth. Our dentists will discuss with you the advantages and limitations of each treatment to identify which would be best for your child.

 

Extractions

While tooth extractions are done only as a last resort, they can be necessary in some instances of disease or trauma. In addition, some extractions are needed for orthodontic reasons, to help guide the eruption and alignment of your child’s permanent teeth. If a primary molar is removed prematurely, a space maintainer may be inserted to make sure there is enough space into which the permanent tooth can grow.

 

Fillings

Pediatric Dental Center offers composite fillings that match the color of the tooth. When decay is discovered early, we are able to use very conservative fillings. Some teeth, however, are too badly decayed to hold a composite filling. These teeth require complete coverage with stainless steel crowns. The doctors are happy to discuss with you the advantages and limitations of each treatment to identify which would be best for your child.

 

Sealants

In permanent teeth most cavities occur on the biting surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). Statistically, 1 in 10 permanent molars will end up with decay in the deep groove.

 

Sealants, white plastic coatings that fill the grooves on the surfaces of back teeth, are highly effective in preventing tooth decay. While they cannot guarantee a tooth will not get decay, sealants substantially reduce the risk of decay, providing an additional 10-15% reduction in dental decay for most patients.

 

Sealants are easy to place and require no numbing medication or alteration of the tooth structure. Sealants typically last for 3-5 years, but some dietary habits, such as chewing ice or hard candy, can cause them to wear down more quickly.
