When a tooth is fractured or damaged due to decay or trauma, dental fillings can replace and restore the tooth’s structure. No one wants to hear that they have a cavity; however, cavity filling is a routine procedure that can fix the tooth. The Super Dentists gives you the option of white resin composite or amalgam fillings.
About 28% of kids between 2–5 years old have cavities. Baby teeth fillings are necessary to protect from nerve damage and changes to the child’s bite that can lead to more severe problems and expensive procedures down the road. Because baby teeth are softer, it is recommended that children see the dentist at least every six months to catch decay in the early stages. The Super Dentists pediatric dentists are experts at keeping your child at ease during a tooth filling. Depending on your child’s needs, we can use relaxation techniques or mild sedation options to ensure a comfortable cavity filling experience.
Even though permanent teeth are stronger than baby teeth, they are also susceptible to cavities. If you or your older children require dental fillings in permanent teeth, The Super Dentists will use a gentle touch to fill your tooth, too.
