Why does my child need fillings?

Parents often assume that issues with baby teeth aren’t a big concern as baby teeth are temporary. However, that is not the case. Baby teeth are just as important as adult teeth! Primary teeth hold space for the secondary teeth and help your child speak, eat, and smile. When a baby tooth develops a cavity due to poor oral hygiene or too much sugar or acid in their diet, a dental filling can preserve the tooth until it is ready to come out.

Are fillings safe for children?

While dental fillings can seem intimidating for young children, they are completely safe and help your child continue to enjoy daily activities! At Tots To Teens Pediatric Dentistry, we offer composite fillings. These tooth-colored fillings blend in with the natural teeth. Tooth-colored filling material provides good durability and resistance for the front or back teeth, making them an excellent option for smiles of any age.

What happens during a dental filling?

Dental fillings are essential in preventing tooth decay from spreading. During a dental filling procedure, one of our pediatric dentists will remove the decayed material from your child’s tooth. Our pediatric dentist will clean the area and fill the space with composite material once the decay is removed. Dental fillings are typically a straightforward process. Our pediatric dentists aim to make the process as comfortable as possible.
