Dental Fillings: Types of Dental Fillings for Kids
Traditionally, most people get either silver fillings or composite fillings. Silver or amalgam fillings used to be the most popular and you can still see many adults walking around with metal in their teeth.
We do not use this option for our young patients. Instead, we provide tooth-colored fillings that blend in with the surrounding tooth structure. They work just as well but make it possible for your child to look as though they have perfectly healthy teeth and never suffered from cavities.
We feel that this is important for the self-esteem of our young patients and for encouraging them to keep up with good oral health. If you are currently seeing another dentist that does not offer tooth-colored fillings, we encourage you to call our office at sugar Bug Buster for the treatment instead. Your children will thank you as they get older.
Dental Fillings or treatment in general for Kids Can Be uncomfortable, We are sedation dentists because we understand that some kids cannot hold still while getting dental work or they are too fearful of it.
If your child falls into one of these categories, don’t worry. We can provide them with a light or moderate sedation so that they can relax, hold still and maybe even fall asleep.
Remember that dental fillings are not painful but they can cause pressure and your child could be emotionally concerned about having dental work done. This is where sedation can become incredibly useful.
To schedule an appointment for preventative care or to get dental fillings for kids from a sedation dentist, give us a call at Sugar Bug Buster and our experienced team will do their best to accommodate your child dental needs
