At Children’s Dental Group, some of the most common dental issues that our West Carson pedodontist sees in the pediatric patients that visit our practice are cavities and general dental decay. Kids tend to have an especially strong liking for candies and other kids of sweets, and it is common knowledge that eating a lot of sugar can easily lead to tooth decay. Cavities also tend to happen in children because they are still learning about how to properly clean and care for their teeth. Enforcing diligent brushing and flossing habits at a young age can greatly reduce the risk of cavities in children, but of course, cavities can still happen regardless. If your child is complaining about a pain in her tooth or gives you any reason to believe that she might have a cavity, you should bring her in to see our West Carson pedodontist as soon as possible so that we can relieve her symptoms and correct the problem immediately.
Our West Carson pedodontist can detect and diagnose your child’s cavity during a simple dental exam here at Children’s Dental Group. If we detect signs of a cavity, we will then discuss treatment options with you and your child in order to correct the problem. At Children’s Dental Group, we like to use composite dental fillings for kids whenever possible. Composite dental fillings are different from the traditional silver and gold fillings of the past. Instead, composite dental fillings are tooth-colored and can be specifically color matched to meet your child’s individual needs. Composite fillings are growing more and more popular because of how realistic they look, and how highly functional they are. Composite dental fillings are an excellent option for repairing damage associated with cavities and other dental issues that call for restorative attention.
