More than half of children over the age of six have some amount of tooth decay. When cavities are left untreated, it can result in infection, pain, and loss of teeth. Generally, pediatric dentists can fill cavities to prevent them from getting worse situations or complications. Modesto Kidz Dental has made it possible to fill cavities carefully and discreetly using tooth-colored fillings, also known as composites. Children with tooth-colored fillings can keep decayed teeth in a way that is both visually appealing and functionally effective.
When we use Tooth-colored fillings for kids?
When a tooth gets decayed, a portion of the tooth will require to be eliminated. Decay cannot be left untreated as it can spread. This is the reason why we used to explore, analyze and treat dental problems as soon as they occur. We can generally catch decay when it is too small and before it makes your child feel a toothache. Once we do, we can assist your child with sedation, numb the area and take off the decayed portion of the tooth. Next, we will clean the area before filling. We need to use the filling for the restoration of the tooth structure to its original shape and size. So, it is crucial to visit a dentist that assists kids on a regular basis as we know and understand how to make them feel safe, relaxed and calm during the whole process.
Types of tooth-colored fillings for kids
Generally, there are two types of dental fillings – silver fillings and composite fillings. Silver fillings are used to be the most popular but we don’t use this for young patients. We offer tooth-colored fillings which assimilate with the tooth structure. It works well and makes it possible for your child to look as they have bright healthy teeth.
What can be treated?
Tooth-colored fillings can be used to treat a lot of dental issues including protect the enamel from damage, fill cavities, reduce the gap between teeth and ensure their teeth are of a uniform size.
