NJ Pediatric Dentist Services: Fillings for Children
Dr. Diane Baldwin, a pediatric dentist in NJ, can help prevent further damage and infection of a baby tooth by removing the decayed portion of the tooth and then filling the area where the cavity once was.
Dr Baldwin performs the procedure at her NJ Pediatric Dentistry office. She can not only repair teeth due to cavities, but also repair children’s teeth that are cracked and/or broken from nail biting, tooth grinding or other injury.
When a baby tooth is repaired, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area. A drill will then be used to remove the decayed or damaged area. Once the debris and bacteria have been cleared the area is prepped for the filling.
A dental restoration or a filling is the repair of a decayed or damaged tooth, restoring the tooth allows it to look normal in appearance, shape, and function. NJ pediatric dentists repair teeth in order to prevent the premature loss of a tooth or irreparable damage due to decay or injury. Once a tooth has been repaired normal eating and chewing is permitted.
