Restorative Dentistry

Saving Teeth Like Superheroes

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!

Tooth-Colored Fillings

You Can Hardly Tell They’re There


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.

  • Tooth-colored dental fillings are more attractive and less noticeable than metal ones.
  • Tooth-colored fillings are of durable construction that lessen discomfort from temperature changes from hot to cold (or vice versa).
  • A tooth-colored filling returns the tooth to full function and aesthetics.

Crowns

Restorations for Royalty


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.

  • Crowns are restorations for badly decayed and broken teeth.
  • Crowns can save and protect your child’s tooth and improve oral health.
  • A crown restoration can make a child’s tooth stronger to withstand more chewing force.

Pulp Therapy

The Root of the Problem


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.

  • Pulpotomy is when the pulpal tissue is only removed within the crown of the tooth.
  • Pulpectomy is when the pulpal tissue is removed from both the crown and the tooth root.
  • Pediatric pulp therapy is less extensive than an adult root canal.
