At Dental Specialty Associates, our lower Manhattan pedodontist and the rest of the staff here believe that it is never too early to get a handle on your child’s oral health and hygiene. Some of the most common dental issues that we see in our pediatric patients are tooth decay and cavities. Tooth decay and cavities are caused by a buildup of bacteria that is constantly forming on the teeth. Teaching your child proper brushing habits and guiding them toward a balanced diet that is low in sugary and sticky foods is helpful in avoiding cavities, along with having them visit a professional for regular dental cleanings, but there is always a risk that tooth decay and cavities will persist.Our lower Manhattan pedodontist recognizes tooth decay and cavities in patients quite frequently, and it is a minor problem that can easily be fixed. If you child has cavities, it is important to have them fixed with dental fillings as recommended by our lower Manhattan pedodontist. These pediatric dental restorations are necessary even if the decay has occurred in a baby tooth. Not having the baby tooth filled appropriately can cause issues in your child’s permanent teeth that you want to avoid. Dental fillings and overall restorations are also recommended because decayed teeth can cause uncomfortable symptoms for your child, such as toothache, tooth sensitivity, and overall pain in the effected area. The dental filling provided by our lower Manhattan pedodontist will relieve these symptoms and have your child feeling good as new.
