Pediatric restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that specializes in restoring damaged, decayed or missing teeth in children. Here are some common treatments and procedures involved in pediatric restorative dentistry:
Dental Fillings: Composite fillings are often used to restore decayed or damaged teeth in children. They are safe and durable and are designed to blend in with the natural teeth.
Dental Crowns: Crowns may be necessary to restore severely damaged or decayed teeth. Pediatric dental crowns are typically made from stainless steel or composite materials and are designed to be durable and long-lasting.
Pulpotomy: A pulpotomy is a procedure that removes the infected pulp tissue in a child’s tooth and replaces it with a filling material. This treatment can help save a damaged or decayed tooth from extraction.
