Common Childhood Oral Health Issues

Cavities

Roughly 43% of children between the ages of 2 and 19 will have at least one cavity, but your child doesn't have to be one of them! Cavities are the most common preventable chronic childhood disease. With proper brushing and flossing, and routine dental visits, your child's teeth can beat the statistics.

Broken & Chipped Teeth

Kids are very active, and that means their teeth can take the brunt of their lifestyle. When a tooth gets broken or chipped, it can expose nerves and roots that leave it susceptible to infection. Restoring your child’s teeth as soon as possible will ensure that they avoid further complications.

Infection

Infection anywhere in the body is dangerous, but the mouth is especially dangerous because of the size of blood vessels and the proximity to the surface of the gums. An untreated cavity or serious damage can expose the “pulp” below your child’s tooth and result in an infection. Getting them pediatric restorative dental care right away can prevent the risk of infection.

Composite Fillings

We exclusively use composite fillings at Timber Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics. Composite fillings are made of a special dental resin and can be matched perfectly to the color of your child’s natural tooth. After damaged and decayed enamel has been removed from your child's tooth, one of our dentists will apply the composite layer-by-layer, reshaping and restoring your child’s tooth structure.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are the best way to restore your child’s tooth if it has been damaged by decay or an injury. Crowns cover your child’s natural tooth structure, restoring their smile and bite, and preventing further damage. We offer a wide variety of pediatric dental crowns to meet every need, including stainless steel, lab-made, and same-day CAD/CAM crowns.

Root Canal Therapy

If your child’s tooth becomes infected due to a deep cavity or dental trauma, root canal therapy is often the best way to save it. This procedure involves creating an opening in your child’s tooth, then cleaning out the decayed and damaged material from the inside. Next, the area will be disinfected, filled, and restored with a filling or a crown. With a root canal, you can save your child’s tooth and provide them with relief from their pain and discomfort.

Frenectomies

If your child has a tongue or lip tie, our team offers quick, painless frenectomies to give them more mobility and help them feed easier. We offer laser frenectomies to cut the thick bands of tissue that may be impeding the proper movement of their lips and tongue. Get in touch to learn more about how a frenectomy can benefit infants and nursing mothers alike.
