Cavity treatments and Fillings for Kids
Cavity treatments and fillings are essential to helping to maintain the oral health of your children. Once your child has a cavity, it is important to have it filled and prevent further tooth decay.
Dr. Jacqueline Caster will examine your child’s mouth and then discuss treatment options with you based on your child’s tooth decay advancement.
The tooth filling procedure is completed with minimal discomfort. If we believe there will be any discomfort, we can ‘freeze’ the tooth area to temporarily numb the area.
The decay will be removed from the infected tooth. Then the tooth is cleaned and filled with a special composite filling that will be color-matched to the tooth. Using a blue light, the material will be cured for a natural-looking and durable result.
