Restorative care is the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of damaged teeth. At Advanced Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that many children develop cavities or gum problems despite preventative care. When restorations are needed, we pride ourselves on giving our patients the best treatment while keeping them at ease. We offer several restorative procedures to meet your child’s dental needs, which include:
Composite (White) Fillings
Composite fillings restore decayed teeth and strengthen tooth structure after cavity damage. A filling procedure removes the decayed portion of the tooth and then the tooth is restored with tooth-colored composite filling material. White fillings are ideal for long-lasting dental health and helping your child feel more confident in their smile.
Stainless Steel Crowns
In some cases, a crown may be required to protect the remaining healthy tissue within a cracked, damaged, or decayed tooth. Your child’s APD dentist will remove any infected material and then cover the entire tooth with a crown to protect the remaining tooth structure.
Zirconia Kinder Krowns
Preformed white zirconia kinder krowns can be used for better cosmetic and parent approved dental treatments on front and back teeth. Zirconia crowns are durable enough to use on both front and back teeth and can stand up to years of wear and tear.
Occasionally, preserving a tooth is not an option. In cases where infection, abscess, or trauma are present, an extraction may be needed. Extractions may also be recommended if your child has crowding or if space is required for orthodontic treatment. With the use of the latest dental technologies and techniques, extractions can be performed quickly, gently, and safely.
Unliteral and bilateral space maintainers may be used to prevent movement of teeth after an extraction.
