Questions about restorative treatments

How do I know if my child needs restorative dental treatment?

If your child has a toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks, or visible signs of decay or damage on their teeth, they may need restorative dental treatment. We recommend bringing your child in for regular dental checkups to catch any potential issues early on and prevent the need for more extensive restorative treatment.

Will my child feel any pain during a restorative dental treatment?

Our team uses the latest techniques and technologies to ensure that restorative treatments are as comfortable as possible for your child. We also offer sedation options to help your child feel more relaxed during their procedure.

How can I help my child care for their teeth after a restorative dental treatment?

The best care is to maintain good oral hygiene habits to keep your child’s teeth healthy and prevent further damage. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting us regularly for checkups and cleanings. Also, our team will provide personalized advice and guidance on how to care for your child’s teeth after their restorative treatment.
