Cavities occur at some point in most people’s lives. They are usually caused by bacteria breaking down sugar in your mouth. This, in turn, produces an acid that eats away at a tooth’s enamel. Since children often eat and drink sugary foods and beverages, they are at a higher risk for cavities. However, if caught early, a cavity can be treated with a dental filling.
What is a Dental Filling?
After decay is removed from your child’s tooth, a dental filling is used to restore the natural shape and structure of the tooth. Fillings are made of either tooth-colored composite resin to match the natural look of a patient’s teeth or silver amalgam. Both types are durable and will last for years if a patient follows good dental habits, such as visiting us at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings. We can help determine which material is best suited for your child.
