The sooner your child receives treatment for tooth decay, the better the chances of reversing its effects. Our pediatric dentists have treated thousands of young patients with dental cavities and use the latest tools and techniques to make treatment comfortable, fast and easy.
Possible treatments include:
- White Dental Fillings: For smaller cavities on back teeth and any teeth that need to be restored in the front of the mouth.
- Stainless Steel Crowns: For larger cavities in the back of the mouth.
- Pulp Capping: This endodontic treatment “caps” root pulp, which is the inner layer of the tooth before the root canal. Capping the pulp tissue prevents infection and the need for more intensive endodontic treatment.
- Pulpotomy: Used on baby teeth when the root pulp has been exposed due to damage or dental decay, this treatment sterilizes and heals the pulp tissue.
- Baby Tooth Root Canals: For cavities that affect the nerves of the primary teeth.
- Tooth Extractions: For a cavity that has broken down enough structure of the tooth that it cannot be restored.
- Space Maintainers: For keeping teeth aligned when a baby tooth needs to be extracted.
If your child needs more extensive care, Dr. Mannella and our team utilize calming methods including nitrous oxide (laughing gas), in-office sedation or treatments under general anesthesia at Morristown Medical Center.
