Restorative dental care is one of the most important things you can do for your child. While preventative measures are essential, from time to time, a little more work is needed. 

For preventative care, your child should be brushing and flossing regularly. 

Restorative procedures are essential to put the smile back on your child’s face. 

What are restorative procedures?

Any restorative dentistry is designed to enable your mouth to remain functional and healthy. 

There are several procedures that are under the umbrella of restorative dentistry:

 

  • Root canal
  • Crowns
  • Dentures
  • Fillings
  • Bonding
  • Extractions

 

Children can often be worried about these procedures. Westpark Pediatric Dentistry are experts and ensure the young residents of Richmond, Texas feel safe and secure. 

 

How does restorative dentistry benefit my child?

Our smiles are something that we should never have to hide away. 

While regular appointments can maintain the tooth, there are occasions that restorative treatments are essential. 

There are a few problems that children tend to get with their teeth:

 

  • Tooth decay – caused by bacteria build-up, proper brushing can help reduce tooth decay, but it may still happen. 
  • Gum disease – this is caused by infrequent brushing, poor oral hygiene. 
  • Teeth grinding – 2-3/10 children grind or clench their teeth
  • Retained primary teeth – occasionally, a primary tooth won’t loosen 
  • Cracks, chips, and knocked out teeth – children are rough and tumble, and trios and accidents can cause tooth damage that lead to other issues

 

Restorative dentistry can save and restore a tooth back to its natural look, color, and shape. 

 

It does this by:

 

  • Replacing missing teeth using artificial restorations. This may be bridges, dentures, and implants. 
  • Damaged teeth can be repaired with treatments and dental fillings. 
  • If the tooth gets chipped or damaged, it can be directly or indirectly restored using fillings, crowns, inlays, and onlays. 

 

What restorative procedures does Westpark Pediatric Dentistry do?

We are proud to offer restorative treatments to give your child their smile back. 

Bonding

Chips and damage in the tooth enamel can cause issues at a later date. Bonding is a quick procedure that smooths the rough edges of teeth. 

They remain strong for years, and bonding will protect soft gum tissues. 

Fillings

We use a BPA-free composite filling instead of amalgam fillings. These are strong, discreet, and perfect for filling cavities. 

Using tooth-colored fillings, we can quickly have your tooth back in action. A filling restores the structure of the tooth. 

Crowns

The part of the tooth we can see is the crown. Crowns can sometimes get damaged, and a crown replacement is a quick way to repair the tooth. 

There are several material options, including stainless steel, zirconia, and re-veneered crowns. 

Extractions

While every other option will be explored before extraction would be considered, sometimes it is for the best. 

When there is an injury to the tooth, a root canal is not an option, or an impacted tooth – extraction can be the best option. 

Root Canal

A root canal removes infected pulp from within the tooth, which can immediately end any pain they have been experiencing. 

The infected pulp will be removed, the roots will be sterilized, and a crown will be placed. 

Restorative dentistry can help your child smile, chew and speak without pain. Get in touch today to discuss your child’s dental hygiene and restorative treatment options.
