Experienced Dental Care for Your Child
Pediatric dental fillings are used to protect damaged or decayed teeth, so your child can retain proper, pain-free chewing function and enjoy restored tooth health. Our experienced dentist offers high-quality pediatric dental fillings and cavity treatment in Gainesville, FL, to help preserve your child’s teeth.
Why Does Your Child Need a Filling?
There are many reasons why our dentist could recommend a filling for your child’s teeth. A couple of the most common are:
- Tooth Decay – A tooth can decay, breaking down the tooth structure. Oftentimes, children don’t feel a cavity until it is too late, and the issue has progressed into decay.
- Fractures & Chips – A chipped tooth can be more than a cosmetic concern. Hairline cracks in the enamel can expose the tooth to decay from bacteria getting in the tooth, and can cause the tooth to split and break.
Our Gentle, Compassionate Approach
If our dentist recommends a filling for your child, you can rest assured that they’re in good hands! Our dental team is specially trained to work on children’s teeth. We encourage a “less is more approach” when speaking to your child about their upcoming filling appointment. Our dental team will use kid-friendly terms during their visit.
To set your child at ease, our dentist may offer nitrous oxide. Children are encouraged not to eat anything two hours before their appointment. The “laughing gas” will help relax your child, and it is common to overhear them laughing throughout their visit. Once the procedure is complete, the laughing gas will wear off and your child will love showing off their newly shined white tooth.
