Fillings for Kids
Do you need fillings for kids in Morris County, NJ?
Roxbury Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry are specialists at creating fillings for kids in Morris County, NJ.
Fillings help kids to use their teeth like normal even though they may have suffered from damage or tooth decay. Fillings protect your child’s teeth, so they don’t feel any pain when biting, chewing or smiling.
Reasons your child could need a filling:
- Tooth Decay – A tooth can decay, breaking down the tooth structure. Often your child may not feel a cavity until it is too late and the tooth may have progressed to something more serious.
- Fractures and Chips – A chipped tooth can be more than a cosmetic concern. Hairline cracks in the enamel can expose the tooth to decay from bacteria getting in the tooth as well as can cause the tooth to split and break.
Roxbury Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry dental team is specially trained to work on children's teeth. We encourage a "less is more approach" when speaking to your child about their upcoming filling appointment. Your pediatric dental team will use kid-friendly terms during their visit.
- To set your child at ease, your pediatric dentist may offer nitrous oxide. Children are encouraged not to eat anything two hours before their appointment. The "goofy gas" will help relax your child, and it is common to overhear them laughing throughout their visit while wearing their "ice cream nose."
- Your pediatric dentist will use a special numbing gel before any "sleepy juice" (anesthetic). Your child may talk about Mr. Bumpy, Mr. Spray, and Mr. Thirsty during their filling visit, all at their service to get the "Sugar Bugs" (decay) removed from their teeth. Your child will love showing off their newly shined white tooth.
If you have any questions or concerns about fillings, Roxbury Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry will be happy to answer them. You can trust the entire team will do their utmost to ensure that your children have happy and healthy smiles for years to come.
