If your child has developed a cavity, it is critical to eliminate the cavity before it progresses. Even cavities in “baby teeth” should be repaired because these teeth are important for speech development, function (chewing of food), and to hold the space for the permanent teeth. Untreated cavities can lead to more serious problems such as dental abscess, which is an infection that can spread to other parts of the body. Infection of a baby tooth can also damage the permanent tooth developing beneath it.
At Dentistry for Kids, we offer various options, including fillings and crowns, to arrest tooth decay. An exam by our highly skilled dentists will determine the best treatment options for your child. Please give us a call today at 704-948-8494 to schedule an appointment.
