Children’s Cavities & Prevention

Is a painful cavity disrupting your child’s life? Cavity prevention and treatment are important steps in ensuring your child’s comfort and good dental health over time.

At Carson Children’s Dentistry, we understand that many children will experience cavities as they grow, which is why we provide specialized cavity treatment to stop the spread of cavities to adjacent teeth. We also encourage regular dental checkups to help limit the development of cavities and teach children good oral health techniques.

What Is A Cavity?

A cavity is a damaged area on the hard surface of a tooth that develops into a small hole or opening. If this area is left untreated it can lead to infection and even tooth loss. A cavity typically develops from erosion of the tooth enamel due to poor dental cleaning and a diet high in sugar. However, tooth enamel erosion can occur even if all the proper dental hygiene habits are followed, so it’s important that you bring your child in for their routine dental cleaning. Our expert staff will make sure there are no cavities developing and effectively treat any that may be present.

How Can Cavities Be Prevented?

Cavities are very common, especially in children, which is why our modern practice offers the very best in cavity treatment. However, there are some steps that you and your child can take to help prevent a cavity from developing, including:

  • Making sure your child learns and practices good dental hygiene habits from a young age, such as flossing regularly and brushing their teeth twice a day.
  • Limiting the amount of sugary drinks and foods in your child’s diet.
  • Bringing your child in twice a year for a professional dental cleaning and checkup.

How is a Cavity Treated?

Our skilled kid’s dentist, Dr. Omid Barkhordar, is highly experienced in carefully diagnosing and gently fixing cavities present on fragile baby teeth, as well as newly formed permanent teeth. Some of our innovative cavity treatment options include:

  • Flouride Treatment: Our state-of-the-art fluoride treatment can restore eroded tooth enamel and sometimes even reverse a cavity. Our fluoride treatment is typically used when a cavity is still in its early stages and can come in the form of a gel, liquid or foam.
  • Tooth Filling: If your child’s cavity has advanced beyond the fluoride treatment stage, then a dental filling is the most common treatment utilized. Our fillings are made from only the highest quality materials and will be color-matched to blend in with your child’s natural teeth.
  • Pediatric Dental Crown: One of our modern and beautiful pediatric dental crowns may be the best treatment option if more severe tooth decay is present.
  • Pediatric Root Canal: Our gentle and effective pediatric root canals may be necessary if the tooth decay has reached the tooth pulp. A root canal will help save the tooth and restore your child’s comfort and oral health.
