Caries & Cavity Treatment in Pembroke Pines & Plantation, FL
If your child has a cavity and you need to find caries treatment quickly, call the professionals at Jacaranda Smiles at our Plantation, FL or Pembroke Pines, FL locations.
Whether a baby tooth or an adult tooth is decayed, it is important to act fast and seek cavity treatment. Untreated dental caries can cause pain and tooth sensitivity. Over time, this condition can lead to more serious health problems.
Once your Plantation, FL dentist has diagnosed a cavity, your child will likely need a dental filling. The two most commonly used fillings in children are:
- Tooth-Colored Plastic: This white filling material matches the natural tooth color. It blends in better than a silver amalgam tooth filling.
- Silver Amalgam: Metal fillings have been used by dentists for many decades. Cavity treatment with silver amalgam remains a trusted method of tooth repair.
Your dentist in Plantation or Pembroke Pines, FL can help you decide which filling material is best for your child. However, the affected tooth has a large cavity, Dr. Rene Landa may suggest a porcelain crown or endodontic therapy.
Why Children Need Caries Treatment
A lack of proper dental care is only one reason why kids need caries treatment. While having good oral hygiene habits and regular dentist visits can stop cavities in their tracks, genetics and diet also have an impact.
