Treat Your Child’s Complex Oral Health Problems with a Pediatric Dentist

If your child doesn’t pay a regular visit to their pediatric dentists and maintain a good oral hygiene, they are likely to suffer from disorders such as dental decay and infections. Now, as children have difficulty in expressing in how they feel, parents will neglect their child’s struggles with infected tooth until the problem aggravates and the child cannot bear the discomfort anymore. At this point, there is a fair chance that the tooth will be in very bad shape and may need extra care. Hence, parents should bring their children to their pediatric dentist in Dallas at least in every 6 months so that they can be examined and problems can be identified beforehand. But, if has not happened, we can treat the children with serious oral health problems.

  1. Dental decay

In order to treat decay, you need to remove it. After the area has been numbed and providing the child with the pain meds, a dental drill is used to remove the decayed part of the tooth, the area is cleaned and then a tooth colored dental filling is placed so that the restoration can be complete. This is accomplished rapidly. If there are several teeth having the decay, more appointments need to be scheduled so that the child doesn’t have to sit for a long time.

  1. Dental infection

There are many degrees of dental infection. In order to address this, antibiotics are prescribed that has to be taken for at least a week or so. This helps in clearing the infection but the source is also required to be removed. This doesn’t need a root canal to be completed. But as the kids have a limited ability to sit still, they need to be put to sleep when such significant procedure is performed.

  1. Extractions

If the tooth is prone to be infected or a baby tooth is badly damaged, we suggest extracting it instead. It is dependent on the severity of the damage and the health of the roots. We can accomplish the extraction after giving your child with the appropriate pain medication.

We use dental crowns and dental bonding for restoration purposes. Dental crowns surround the tooth to be completely protected. This is a perfect option if the budget is an issue or the enamel is missing. Dental bonding is famous for cracks or chips as the bonding material is placed and hardened easily during one appointment.
