Don’t Fear the First Filling
Our goal is for your child to enjoy their trips to Dakota Dental. If it is decided that your child needs a tooth filling, don’t panic and don’t let your child panic. Restorative dental work is necessary for the well being of your child’s teeth, and over the past twenty years we have learned how to prepare children for their first cavity filling as well as comfort them during the procedure.
The appointment will typically start with a local anesthetic, though many baby teeth can receive their tooth filling without one. Depending on the tooth that is affected, you may have a choice between white fillings, a tooth colored filling or silver fillings known as amalgam fillings. The dentist will remove the decay and then proceed with the cavity filling.
The process is quick and pain-free and your child will be praised for their brave behavior with a trip to our toy box. Dakota Dental Center prides themselves on knowing and caring for children and we look forward to seeing you in our Apple Valley dental clinic soon!
