Benefits of Restorative Dentistry for Kids
Small smiles deserve specialized care. Here is how we can help:
Despite their small size, children’s teeth (both baby and adult) play a big role. From helping your child chew to holding space for permanent teeth, they’re vital during development and adulthood.
Restorative dentistry fixes damaged teeth to promote immediate and long-term oral health. After an exam and consultation, Franklin Children's Dentistry will recommend the most appropriate treatment. We also offer sedation dentistry to help ensure a pain-free and worry-free procedure.
We offer tooth-colored crowns and fillings:
Dr. Robyn treats severe dental decay and tooth damage using tooth-colored crowns. These white crowns can be used on both front teeth and back teeth.
They’re made of either composite or zirconia. Both types of white crowns provide an esthetic full-coverage option compared to traditional pediatric stainless steel crowns.
BPA-Free White Fillings (Composite Fillings)
At Franklin Children’s Dentistry, Dr. Robyn only uses BPA-free composites and sealants. These materials are safer for children and adults.
BPA (AKA Bisphenol A) is a chemical frequently used in the production of plastics and resins. BPA is not directly used in dental materials; however, it is used in the synthesis of monomers that are commonly used in dental materials. Trace amounts of BPA may leach out of the resin after it is placed in the mouth, creating a small increase in BPA levels in saliva and urine.
There is evidence that certain BPA derivatives may pose health risks due to their endocrine-disrupting properties. If you have questions about BPA in dental materials, visit the AAPD or ADA websites for further information.
Esthetic restorations improve your child’s self-esteem and dental health. We also offer sedation dentistry to help ensure a comfortable and worry-free procedure. Based on your child’s individual needs, we will recommend the best options, let you know what to expect, and how to prepare.
FAQ about Children’s Restorations
Get answers to your top questions.
They’re just baby teeth. Do they have to be fixed?
If your child has a cavity or broken tooth, it is important to schedule a dental checkup to ensure your child is out of pain and that there is no risk of infection. Children typically have their baby teeth from 6 months of age to age 12 or older. Baby teeth, or primary teeth, act as placeholders for the permanent teeth and are needed to properly maintain space.
If you’re worried about your child’s primary teeth, please schedule an appointment today.
Do dental restorations hurt?
Franklin Children’s Dentistry uses effective numbing agents to ensure a comfortable and stress-free experience. We offer several sedation options for our patients that may suffer from dental anxiety or have more extensive treatment needs.
How long does a tooth restoration last?
Tooth restorations can last several years, depending on the type of repair and material used.
Another important factor for the lifespan of your child’s restoration is their habits at home, including brushing, flossing, eating habits, teeth grinding, nail-biting, etc.
