What are Pediatric Fillings?

Baby teeth are very important to normal dental development in children.
They help to hold space and guide adult teeth into
place. Not treating dental cavities in children can result
in toothaches, pain, possible infection, and even medical
emergencies. Teeth that are not treated will need to be
extracted, resulting in premature loss.

Does my child need pediatric fillings?

Premature loss of baby teeth can cause adult teeth to grow in crooked and can affect your child’s ability to eat and breathe, as well their self-esteem as they get older. Additionally, Orthodontic treatment such as braces may be required. The best course of action is to maintain an effective oral hygiene routine at home, and to bring your child for necessary dental treatment to help them have a healthy smile for life.
