Restorative care is the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of damaged teeth. Here at North Royalton Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that even with vigilant dental care, many children and adolescents still develop gum problems or cavities. We have developed a method of dental care that focuses on prevention. Our philosophy is that when children are taught proper oral hygiene in their youth, they are more likely to practice good habits as they become adolescents and adults.
Many patients wonder why it is important to care for primary or “baby” teeth, since they are just going to fall out anyway, to be replaced by secondary or “adult” teeth. Caring for teeth in childhood has many benefits. Besides developing healthy hygiene habits, children will benefit by developing stronger gums and ligaments and creating strong and healthy pathways for adult teeth to follow when they are ready to come in.
When cavities occur, we make it our top priority to treat our young patients with care, gentleness, and patience. We pride ourselves on our ability to put our patients at ease as they receive the best treatment we can give.
We offer several restorative procedures to meet your child’s dental needs. Some of the restorative care procedures we perform include the following:
