What To Do About Children’s Cavities

Does your child have cavities? Have they not been brushing regularly? If so, then they definitely need to come see our pediatric dentist. At Signature Smiles, we specialize in pediatric dentistry and helping kids get back to having pristine oral health.

Your Child May Need Kinder Krowns

Your child may not have had their teeth for very long, but that doesn’t protect them from cavities. Children are just as susceptible to cavities as adults. Typically, kids aren’t as thorough as they should be when brushing their teeth and they can quickly get cavities.

Cavities can be just surface problems that can easily be removed and filled in with material that is either composite resin, porcelain, or other strong materials. Our Signature Smiles dentists do not use silver or mercury fillings.

If the cavity has gone untreated for a long period of time, then there is a good chance it has reached the root system of the tooth. If this is the case, then the use of Kinder Krowns may be necessary in order to salvage the tooth or teeth.

Kinder Krowns have been used in the dental industry for nearly 50 years and are made of Zirconia, a material that is much stronger than most other dental crown substances. We want to make sure that your child is able to keep their baby teeth for their duration until their adult teeth grow in. Children’s first teeth last until they are about six or seven years old. Baby molars can last till they are about 12 years old.

At Signature Smiles, we understand how important it is to teach children the importance of protecting their teeth. These lessons will translate into their adulthood and will increase the chances of them keeping their teeth in good condition.

If your child has cavities, don’t wait to make your appointment. Schedule your appointment today so that we can save your child’s teeth and they will not have to deal with issues of pain, discomfort, or early oral surgery.
