Keeping an active child’s teeth intact can be an epic battle for the ages—just like getting some children to take naps! Kids can be fearless—playing hard, moving fast, and inevitably, falling down, and their teeth get in the way at the wrong time. Other kids draw the short straw when it comes to their teeth, whether issues are caused by genetics, health, or happenstance. Damaged or missing teeth complicate eating and smiling and may even make these basic daily functions painful. Harp Pediatric Dentistry will do everything possible to preserve your child’s natural teeth with restorative dentistry procedures that save the day!Schedule Online
At some point in our lives, most of us get a cavity—and sometimes it happens when we’re still kids. Fillings are restorations that correct small- to medium-sized areas of decay and are often of porcelain or composite resin construction, color-matched by Dr. Dawoud to blend in with your child’s teeth.
When it comes to crowns, Dr. Dawoud prefers to discuss your child’s individual needs with you. Crowns are restorations used when a cavity is too large to be repaired with a simple filling or when the location of tooth decay makes a crown necessary. Your child’s specific needs determine what type of crown we will recommend.
Pulp therapy refers to pulpotomy or pulpectomy, which are pediatric procedures similar to adult root canals. Dr. Dawoud removes infection from inside the tooth, seals the chamber to prevent additional infection, and finishes the process with a restoration to return the tooth to optimal function.
