Though you try hard to make sure your child is brushing and flossing their teeth appropriately, it is not always easy. When the matter comes to your child's dental health, you would want to help them attain a glowing, healthy smile. But when problems like cavities and severe tooth decay occur, returning their oral health to full function becomes a priority.
At Unique Kids Pediatric Dentistry, we offer restorative dentistry services for children, including pulp therapy, tooth-colored fillings, crowns, and much more.
Why Is Restorative Dentistry Important for Children?
Restorative dentistry treatments are crucial to keep your children's teeth strong and healthy. Young children love to eat sugary snacks and are more likely to suffer from mouth injuries. Restorative treatments then become necessary to treat common oral health concerns affecting a child's growing smile, appearance, function, and health.

Despite your child's adequate brushing and flossing, cavities can still occur. Even with fluoride treatment and dental sealants, the decay and resulting cavities of teeth cannot be avoided. A tooth-colored filling will be the most appropriate treatment to treat decay.
If you are concerned that this restorative option will leave your child with a silver or gold piece of metal shining intensely in their mouth; there is no need to worry. Nowadays, we are treating children with tooth-colored dental fillings. The composite resin is BPA-free and a hundred percent metal-free.
When a tooth is impaired or decayed to the point that a filling is no longer a solution, a metal or tooth-colored dental crown can help conceal the damage. Tooth-colored crowns made of zirconia, which is a ceramic-like substance, are solid and durable. A dental crown will not only safeguard your child's deteriorating tooth, but it will restore their visual appearance and offer full functionality. As a parent, you don't have to worry about the look of your child's smile because we will make sure the crown blends in effortlessly with the rest of their natural teeth.
The center of every tooth has a pulp that consists of nerves, blood vessels, and tissues. When the dental pulp gets infected by harmful bacteria, it can become agonizingly painful. Cavities or cracks within a tooth's enamel can cause severe toothaches that reach deep down to the pulp.
We may suggest pulp therapy to stop the bacteria from spreading and reduce the child's tooth pain. This will also enable us to save the tooth from extraction. If not treated, the bacteria can grow and lead to infection, which may necessitate extraction.
