Goals of Restorative Dentistry:
Preserving the tooth structure
A tooth–colored filling, also known as a composite filling, is commonly used material to fill cavities. They are advantageous because they can restore a tooth to its natural appearance. Composite filling known as tooth-colored filling as the fillings blends with the natural color of the teeth. Moreover, tooth-colored filling is like prevention dentistry as this filling is safe, reliable and long-lasting.
In Dentistry, crown or cap is placed on a baby tooth or adult tooth when the cavity is too large to warrant a filling. A dental crown is tooth-shaped which protects teeth weakened from decay, trauma, or root canal treatment. Most commonly used crowns for children’s teeth are stainless crowns which are silver in color due to their durability. The average lifespan of crowns are 15 years. If you maintain your children’s teeth crowns then they lasts up to 20-30 years.
Root Canal Treatments
When the caries are too large, root canal therapy is necessary to save the tooth. During a pulpotomy the infected part of the nerve is removed and a sedative medication is placed inside the tooth to promote healing of the affected nerve tissue. If your child needs Root Canal Treatment on a permanent (adult) tooth, we will refer you to a dentist who specializes in Root Canal Treatments.
Tooth extraction refers to the removal of a tooth. Extraction may sometimes be necessary if a tooth has abscessed or has a cavity too large to warrant a filling or crown. It is an outpatient procedure. As a parent you always ought to take care of your kid’s oral health. If your kid’s facing a tooth extraction then for them it’s be like frightening and nerve-wracking.
