Silver Diamine Fluoride
For a decayed or extremely sensitive tooth, silver diamine fluoride can work wonders. We can gently apply this FDA-approved topical gel to the affected tooth. It not only eliminates the harmful bacteria already in the area, but it also remineralizes the enamel, making the tooth more cavity-resistant while relieving painful sensitivity.
Has your child been complaining about a toothache that never seems to go away? This could point to an untreated cavity that has led to an infection inside of the tooth. Dentists can treat this problem in adults with a root canal, but kids may require pulp therapy instead. During this procedure, we carefully remove the diseased tissue in the tooth’s center while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Then, we top the tooth with a crown to protect it for years to come.
Children with an extensively decayed or fractured tooth may benefit from a dental crown as an option. We can cement a tooth-shaped cap over a primary or permanent tooth no matter where it’s located in the mouth. Dental crowns for kids are designed to preserve a tooth’s structure, ensuring the rest of their oral development continues as planned. At Cherokee Children’s Dentistry, we use 3M Filtek crowns, which are made from materials that are extremely durable.
For minor cavities, all a child may need is a small filling. Like crowns, fillings were traditionally made from metals until dental technology advanced to the point where natural-looking materials became a viable alternative. Once we apply a custom-shaded composite resin to your child’s decayed tooth, it will look and feel as good as new.
