If your child gets cavities, they have to be dealt with. The holes are not just painful, the damage can also affect the teeth that come in later. Baby teeth are just placeholders for adult teeth and are important in the proper development of the jaw. If a baby tooth is missing, it influences the way the jaw bone grows – possibly resulting in a misaligned jaw and bite.
If only the outer tooth enamel is affected, a fluoride varnish may be enough to protect the enamel from acids. If the decay has gone deeper, the rotten bits need to be removed and the hole needs to be filled. Using playful and child-friendly explanations, relaxation techniques, an atmosphere of trust and empathy, and a bit of distraction and imagination, we will make sure your little ones feel at ease in the dentist’s chair.
