Restorative Dentistry options for children at Mona Dental for Kids
At Mona Dental for Kids, we love helping keep children’s smiles free from cavities and other issues with a comprehensive array of preventive dental care services. However, sometimes dental problems occur that need extra attention and care. At our Spring, Texas pediatric dental practice, we provide restorative dentistry options using the latest technologies to meet a wide variety of patients’ needs.
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is the practice of bringing health and function back to a person’s teeth and gums after they have been damaged. This damage can happen due to several reasons, such as:
- Cavities or deeper decay
- Gum disease
- Injuries from sports
- Abscesses and infections
Restorative treatments typically involve the removal of the decayed, diseased, or damaged tissue. And then replacing it with a natural-looking, durable dental restoration that helps not only protect the tooth from further damage but also restore its appearance and function so your child can smile, speak, and eat with confidence. Common dental restorations used for children include:
- Tooth-colored fillings for cavities
- Dental crowns
- Pulpotomies (nerve treatments)
- Dental extractions and space maintainers
- Laser therapy
Restoring your child’s smile
At Mona Dental for Kids, we use advanced restorative dentistry techniques and materials to ensure that your child is comfortable while they are receiving their treatment and that the result feels and functions as much like a normal tooth as possible. Modern dental anesthetics keep your child pain-free throughout their treatment, and we always use a gentle touch and explain what is happening in a way that your child understands.
Dr. Houshiar regularly undertakes continuing education to stay updated on the newest options for treating children’s smiles. Our desire is for your child to have a great experience in the dental chair and beyond, continuing to have great results and a pain-free, healthy smile long after their procedure is complete. We plan and customize every treatment based on your child’s specific oral health needs and developmental stage.
