We know that your life is a busy one and that checking every last task off of your list means you have to push certain chores up to the top of that list, while others fail to register as priorities. When it comes to scheduling a dental filling for your child’s tooth decay, we urge you to ensure this event holds the number one spot on your daily schedule until it’s complete! Why is it so important to treat decay immediately, you wonder? Consider some compelling reasons to act quickly, so you may protect your little one’s smile.
It’s A Progressive Disease
Tooth decay is a progressive hygiene-related disease. This means that once it starts, it’s not going to stop or reverse. Instead, it will continue down the path that it’s already begun taking. What path is that? One in which more and more of your child’s dental tissue becomes destroyed. Stopping it is possible with the placement of a dental filling!
The Damage Can Become Significant
As you may have already begun to gather, neglecting to come in for a dental filling as soon as possible can leave your child’s tooth at a high risk for serious complications to develop. As tissue continues to become destroyed, the chance of an infection developing or the tooth breaking increases.
We Offer Tooth-Colored Fillings!
You’re not going to have to bring your child home with a metal filling that darkens your child’s tooth and increases temperature related sensitivity. We will place a tooth-colored dental filling made of composite, which will yield beautiful and comfortable results.
Save Your Child’s Tooth With A Filling ASAP
Come in as soon as you can once your child is diagnosed with tooth decay, so we may stop the problem and place a beautiful tooth-colored filling.
