If one of our pediatric dentists at Children’s Dental Care finds a cavity, your child will need a filling to prevent further dental discomfort and damage to the tooth.
During the procedure, your child’s dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the area. Once the tooth is numb, our dentist will drill out the decay and fill up the hole with a filling. Most types of tooth fillings can be completed in a single visit to the dentist’s office.
Benefits of Tooth Fillings
If your child has a cavity in an adult tooth, you may want to consider composite fillings. With a white filling, your child will be able to maintain a healthy natural smile. Tooth-colored cavity fillings are especially great for those adult teeth that show when your child smiles or talks.
For back teeth, you may be able to get away with other dental filling options depending on the extent of tooth decay. For example, amalgam fillings are durable enough to use on back teeth. Our dentists can help you choose the right treatment for your child’s smile!
