Why Choose Surf's Up Pediatric Dentistry for Restorative Dentistry?
Silver Diamine Fluoride
Silver diamine fluoride is an FDA-approved cavity treatment method. First, we’ll clean the affected tooth and remove any debris from within it. Using a small brush, we’ll apply the silver diamine fluoride, which will slow the progression of decay or possibly stop it completely. The process is completely pain-free and non-invasive as well, so your child will remain comfortable and have a positive experience!
In certain circumstances, deep cavities or fractured teeth may involve the nerve of the tooth. When this happens, we intentionally remove a small amount of the nerve and place a certain medicine inside the tooth to help it stay alive. This will help maintain the tooth until it natrually falls out.
Cavities are one of the most common oral health problems among children because they’re still learning how to properly brush and floss their teeth. To repair decayed teeth, we’ll clear away any debris and sanitize it. Then, we’ll place a tooth-colored composite resin in the cavity to seal the inside of the tooth off from the rest of the mouth. This will keep the cavity from growing and progressing into a more serious oral issue, like a tooth infection, as well as cure any sensitivity that your child may be experiencing.
Pediatric Dental Crowns
In primary or baby teeth, certain situations call for full coverage crowns. For example, if the tooth has a large cavity present, a simple filling will not protect the tooth long-term. In this situation, a crown that covers the entire tooth will protect it for its natural life.
