Silver Diamine Fluoride

Regular dental fluoride is most certainly a beneficial preventive component of children’s dentistry, but silver diamine fluoride (SDF) takes it one step further by attacking and killing bad oral bacteria that can cause tooth decay. When children have cavities, we can apply SDF to the tooth so that it stops the spread of decay while eliminating harmful plaque. This is a great option for patients who have special needs or may be unable to undergo more complex restorative care.

Pulp Therapy

If your child complains of a serious toothache, it’s likely to be because something is stuck between their teeth, or they’re struggling with sinus congestion. However, if increased tooth sensitivity or swelling occurs, this could be a sign that damage or decay has reached the pulp. In this case, we will need to examine your child’s tooth to determine if they need pulp therapy. This procedure allows us to remove a portion or the entire pulp to not only eliminate the pain but also, prevent any decay from spreading further.

Dental Crowns

When dental decay cannot be treated with a tooth-colored filling, the next step is to have a dental crown created. Using stainless steel or preformed zirconia crowns to craft these unique restorations. With the help of a dental crown covering your child’s vulnerable tooth structure, the underlying tooth will strengthen over time and be allowed to function normally for improved eating and speaking.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

If Dr. Segall notices a small cavity forming in one of your child’s teeth, we can easily remedy the problem before it gets out of hand. With the help of a composite resin, we can restore the tooth to its normal form and function using a shade-matched material that blends in with your child’s existing tooth enamel shade.

Root Canals

If your child comes you to complaining of extensive tooth pain, there is a possibility that an infection might exist within the innermost layer of their tooth – the pulp. While it is common for younger children to receive pulp therapy, which is the partial removal of the tissue, it is important that our team take care of the problem before it worsens and requires tooth extraction. By addressing the decayed or damaged pulp, we not only eliminate the pain but help your little one keep their natural teeth longer.
