Pediatric Tooth Fillings
Dental Fillings for Baby Teeth
If your child has a cavity, you might be wondering why dental fillings are necessary if baby teeth are only temporary. One reason to place fillings is that it takes time for permanent teeth to come in. If your child loses a baby tooth too soon, crowding or another issue might arise. Plus, cavities just aren’t comfortable. They can cause toothaches and even infection, which would require more extensive dental work later.
