Cavities are the most common preventable chronic childhood disease. While proper brushing and flossing can help prevent cavities, they’re still a very common issue among kids of all ages.
Dental trauma can occur as the result of biting a non-food object or a hard hit in a contact sport. Restoring your child’s teeth as soon as possible will ensure that they avoid further complications.
An untreated cavity or serious damage can expose the “pulp” below your child’s tooth and result in an infection. Tooth infections cause serious pain and discomfort, so don’t wait to get treatment for your child!
We exclusively use composite fillings at Timber Kids Dentistry. Composite fillings are made of a special dental resin and can be matched perfectly to the color of your child’s natural tooth. After damaged and decayed enamel has been removed from your child's tooth, one of our dentists will apply the composite layer-by-layer, reshaping and restoring your child’s tooth structure.
If your child’s tooth becomes infected due to a deep cavity or dental trauma, root canal therapy is often the best way to save it. This procedure involves creating an opening in your child’s tooth, then cleaning out the decayed and damaged material from the inside. Next, the area will be disinfected, filled, and restored with a filling or a crown. With a root canal, you can save your child’s tooth and provide them with relief from their pain and discomfort.
Tooth extractions are always the last resort at Timber Kids Dentistry. We will do everything we can to save a damaged tooth with restorative care, but sometimes a gentle extraction is the best way to treat an oral issue. We offer gentle, pain-free extractions to get your child back to optimal health and out of pain. Your child will be safe and comfortable throughout the entire procedure thanks to our caring, child-friendly dental team.
