Restorative Dentistry

Children's teeth can decay or become damaged due to a variety of reasons, including poor hygiene habits, injury, or other trauma. If this has happened to your child, Dr. Ramsey can use restorative dentistry to save his or her tooth. She feels strongly about preserving as many natural teeth as possible, as it will help with ideal oral health during the adult years.

 
Fillings
Dr. Ramsey offers composite, or tooth colored, fillings so your child can keep the bright smile you've always known. The composite is very strong and durable, and most will last longer than the natural tooth.
 
Root Canals
If you child has a tooth that has a damaged or diseased pulp, Dr. Ramsey will perform a "baby root canal" or pulpotomy. The experience will be similar to an adult root canal, but she uses special techniques to ensure the experience is comfortable and free of intimidation.
 
Stainless Steel Crowns
When a primary tooth has a large cavity and there is not enough of the remaining natural tooth to support the placement of a filling, a stainless steel crown is recommended to repair the tooth and return it to normal function. The stainless steel crown is pre-made, adapted to fit over the entire remaining portion of the tooth, adjusted to fit the bite properly, and is cemented into place. This procedure is completed in a single appointment.
 
Extractions
If your child's tooth cannot by saved, Dr. Ramsey may need to perform an extraction. Depending upon the length of time that will elapse between the removal of the tooth and the expected eruption of the permanent tooth, she may also use a space maintainer to ensure other teeth don't grow into the space.

 

Kid Friendly Language
 
Dr. Ramsey and her staff never use any scary words around children.  Instead of shots, we use sleepy bubbles.  Instead of drilling on your tooth, we use our water whistle to brush away the bad guys.  We don't pull teeth, we give them a bear hug so they can jump out for the tooth fairy.
