Cavities, also known as “tooth decay,” are decayed patches of enamel and dentin on your child’s tooth. Cavities occur when oral bacteria build up due to improper oral hygiene. As these bacteria feed off of and digest food particles, they begin to reproduce, and to excrete acid.
Over time, this acid weakens the tough, hard enamel that protects your child’s tooth. Eventually, a “soft spot” will form, and this will progress into a cavity.
Cavities are a serious oral health problem, and can lead to premature tooth loss, oral infections, and other such problems. If you think your child may have a cavity, contact Kids Tooth Team to get them the treatment they need.
Kids are often nervous and scared of getting their first filling. They don’t know what to expect, and that makes the procedure very intimidating. If your child is very anxious or nervous, Kids Tooth Team can help.
We offer sedation dentistry with laughing gas. This type of sedation uses a nose mask to deliver a mixture of nitrous oxygen to their lungs. As they breathe in the gas, they will relax and feel more comfortable. With sedation, your child can get their filling in comfort at Kids Tooth Team.
