Help your child smile again

If your child is suffering from cavities, you are not alone — cavities are very common in children! The reason is that they’re just starting to develop good dental habits, and particularly younger kids don’t have the ability to brush and floss correctly. This is combined with diets that are often high in sugar, which sticks to teeth and causes decay over time.

Many parents think it’s unnecessary to fix cavities on baby teeth since they will eventually fall out anyway. But cavities should always be treated to prevent other problems, and tooth-colored dental fillings are one of the best ways to do so.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do fillings hurt?

No — what hurts is the cavity itself. Dental fillings are performed using sedation, which means your child won’t feel any type of pain or discomfort.

What will the appointment look like?

Before beginning our treatment, we’ll allow your child to choose a show or movie of their liking, which they can enjoy on our ceiling-mounted TVs. They can also request Archie, our office dog companion, to be present to help with distraction, reassurance, and comfort.

Once settled, we’ll begin with treatment (local anesthetic, removing the decay, and placing a white BPA-free dental filling). We prioritize the child’s comfort throughout and most children leave relieved and really look forward to choosing a reward!

What type of sedation will you use?

The type of sedation will depend on your child’s specific needs. We often use laughing gas (nitrous oxide) or IV sedation for dental fillings. These are safe for children and will help your child relax while still allowing them to follow instructions.

How can I tell if my child has cavities?

Watch for these symptoms:

  • Toothache
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Dark spots on teeth

If your little one has any of these, book an appointment with us today!

How can I help my child prevent cavities?

Dr. Tesoriero will give you some practical advice on how to protect your child from tooth decay. These include:

  • Teach your child good dental hygiene habits from an early age
  • Monitor your child as they brush (especially if they’re under 6)
  • Remember: it’s important to brush at least twice and floss once a day
  • Reduce their sugar intake
  • Bring them for regular checkups and cleanings twice a year
