At Comfort Dental Kids, we believe that the best dental care is rooted in prevention and healthy oral habits. Still, your child may need extra help keeping their teeth healthy. That’s why we offer a comprehensive list of children’s restorative dentistry services at our Aurora, CO children’s dentistry.
Here are a few of our most common restorative procedures:
While you as a parent and our pediatric dentists may do everything we can to prevent cavities from forming, sometimes it still happens and dental fillings can help save the tooth and keep your child free from pain.
At Comfort Dental Kids, we fill cavities with durable, tooth-colored fillings that are inconspicuous and restore teeth to their healthy state.
Extensive decay in molars or root canals requires stainless-steel crowns to cap and protect the tooth. In most cases, we offer stainless steel crowns for the back teeth, however, we do have the option of doing all-white crowns on back teeth. When front teeth need crowns we have different options from all-white crowns, to white face crowns. These keep the teeth healthy and look pretty and natural!
Gentle Tooth Extractions
Sometimes, a primary tooth needs to be removed due to infection or to make room for a permanent tooth coming in behind it.
During extractions, local anesthesia is often sufficient, but in certain cases full sedation is necessary. Either way, extractions are typically straightforward, in-office procedures.
Pulp Therapy (Gentle Root Canal Therapy)
The pulp is the core of a tooth, made up of nerves, blood vessels, and tissue.
If your child suffers an infection at the pulp, Comfort Dental Kids can remove the diseased tissue with gentle therapy. After that, the cleaned space is filled with a special material before being capped with a durable, long-lasting dental crown.
Restorative Dentistry For Special Healthcare Needs
If your child has special healthcare needs or if they require extensive restorative dental work, our pediatric dental team may recommend sleep dentistry to help make the experience more comfortable. Call our Aurora dental office today to learn more!
