At Comfort Dental Kids, we take preventive care and patient education seriously. Even so, your child may still require some extra help to keep their smile healthy. Here are just a few of our most common restorative dentistry services at our Lakewood, CO children’s dentistry:
Dental fillings may sound daunting but, in reality, they are simple procedures that can help save your child’s teeth from damaging decay.
At Comfort Dental Kids, we fill cavities using durable tooth-colored fillings that are designed to restore teeth back to a healthy state and prevent further decay.
If we find that your child is experiencing decay or is need of a root canal, we may recommend topping their tooth with a dental crown.
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
A tooth extraction may be recommended if your child is facing decay or if a tooth is crowding other healthy teeth. Extractions are typically quick, in-office procedures that require local anesthesia. If your child needs it, we can also schedule a tooth extraction as part of our sedation dentistry services.
Pulp Therapy (Gentle Root Canal Therapy)
The pulp is the center of the tooth and is comprised of blood vessels, tissues, and nerves. When the pulp becomes infected, it may need to be removed. During the procedure, the cleaned space is filled with a special material before being capped with a durable, long-lasting dental crown.
