At Kusp Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that parents want the best dental care for their children. That’s why we provide minimally invasive fillings and remineralization treatments to keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong.
Minimally invasive fillings are an innovative technique used to treat small cavities before they become larger problems. The procedure involves removing only the decayed portion of the tooth, leaving as much of the healthy tooth structure as possible. This technique is not only more conservative but less invasive compared to traditional filling procedures because it requires less drilling and anesthetics.
Choosing minimally invasive fillings is a wise decision for your child’s dental health because it minimizes the amount of trauma to the tooth, reducing potential complications. It also helps your child avoid unnecessary trauma by providing less discomfort and a faster recovery period. Additionally, minimally invasive fillings can help your child avoid more significant dental procedures such as crowns, root canals, or even extractions.
Remineralization is a modern dental technique that can rebuild and strengthen your child’s tooth enamel to help the prevention of cavities. This treatment uses calcium phosphate to remineralize and restore the microscopic parts of the tooth that has been lost over time due to acidic food, sugary drinks, or other environmental factors. This process helps the tooth enamel to heal naturally, thus making it stronger and more resistant to future cavities.
The natural healing process of remineralization is non-invasive and considerably more cost-efficient compared to a traditional filling or custom-made dental crown. This modern technique also provides a gentle, conservative approach for repairing early to moderate tooth decay, making it an ideal option for parents who want a more natural solution for their child’s dental health.
While minimally invasive fillings and remineralization treatments can address existing dental problems, it’s crucial to remember that taking your child for regular dental checkups is essential to preventing cavities in the first place. Dr. Adi is trained to identify early signs of tooth decay and can advise you on the best approaches to keeping your child’s teeth and gums healthy and clean.
