Are you worried about cavities affecting your child’s oral health? At Southern Stars Pediatric Dentistry, we specialize in pediatric dental fillings, a fundamental treatment to restore the health and functionality of teeth affected by decay. Our approach is gentle and tailored to the unique needs of children, ensuring their comfort throughout the process.

What are Pediatric Dental Fillings?

Pediatric dental fillings are used to repair cavities and restore decayed teeth. The procedure involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with a child-safe filling material. This treatment not only repairs the tooth but also prevents further decay and maintains the tooth’s structural integrity.

The Process of Getting Pediatric Dental Fillings

Our process for dental fillings includes:

  • Carefully examining the tooth to assess the extent of decay.
  • Gently removing the decayed portion of the tooth.
  • Thoroughly cleaning the cavity to prepare for the filling.
  • Selecting and applying a filling material suitable for children.
  • Shaping and polishing the filling to ensure a comfortable bite.

Benefits of Pediatric Dental Fillings

  • Halts Tooth Decay: Stops the progression of cavities.
  • Restores Tooth Function: Allows children to chew and speak without discomfort.
  • Prevents Future Issues: Averts more extensive dental work down the line.
  • Maintains Tooth Structure: Keeps as much of the natural tooth as possible.
