Restorative dentistry is the process of repairing, treating, or replacing damaged, decayed, and missing teeth.
Restorative dentistry is the process of repairing, treating, or replacing damaged, decayed, and missing teeth. Whether your child has a cavity, a tooth infection, or a knocked-out tooth, we will do our best to treat it as soon as possible to prevent further breakage, oral health problems, and extraction.
Your child’s teeth are very important for oral health and development. Even losing a baby tooth prematurely can have far-reaching consequences like shifting teeth and issues with the eruption of permanent teeth.
At All Kids Dentistry, we use minimally invasive treatments to preserve your child’s healthy teeth, prevent complications like tooth decay and broken teeth, and restore tooth functionality, so your can chew, speak, and smile with confidence. Contact us at All Kids Dentistry to schedule a consultation with Valencia pediatric dentist Dr. Laura Greenwald.
A pediatric crown will last until baby teeth naturally fall out.

A filling is a special material that replaces missing tooth structure. Fillings are used to treat cavities and damage from dental trauma. Fillings restore the structure and tooth functionality and are an early intervention against tooth decay.
Filling a cavity prevents tooth decay from spreading deeper into the tooth and causing an infection. Amalgam fillings are metal fillings that provide a high level of durability and strength to a tooth, while composite fillings are tooth-colored and biocompatible.
If your child develops symptoms like swelling and an abscess, they could have a tooth infection. Infections can be incredibly painful, and they can spread to the other teeth or through the bloodstream if they aren’t treated promptly.
A root canal restores an infected tooth to health by removing the infected tissue from the inside of the tooth, known as the dental pulp. Then, we will thoroughly clean each of their tooth’s canals and replace the missing pulp with a material called gutta-percha. Depending on the type and location of the tooth, your child may also need a dental crown.
A dental crown is a protective cap for a tooth that is weak, damaged, or broken. After taking impressions of your tooth, a specialist creates a custom-made dental crown out of lab-made materials using advanced dental technology. This crown protects the tooth from further breakage and reinforces the strength of the tooth, so it doesn’t collapse under chewing forces. Crowns can also cover aesthetic problems with a tooth.

If your child is dealing with debilitating pain from an infection or their tooth is broken in half, they’re going to struggle to chew and perform normal tooth functions. Restorative dentistry will regain the full functionality of your child’s teeth, so they aren’t held back in their daily life.
If we don’t treat problems like tooth infections, decay, or dental trauma, they will only become worse and result in tooth loss. Then, your child will be left with an even bigger mess that causes long-term consequences. This is why it’s better to spend some money on restorative treatment upfront to save money in the long term.
When your child has a missing or damaged tooth, it can cause aesthetic issues with their smile, which can cause self-esteem issues and bullying. By repairing damage and restoring teeth, your child can feel happy and confident in their smile again.

Yes, it doesn’t matter that baby teeth will fall out naturally. You still need to care for your child’s baby teeth and prevent premature tooth loss. If your child loses a tooth too soon, they will need to get a space maintainer to hold the space open.
This is because, without it, the other teeth will shift. This causes orthodontic misalignment and blocks the eruption of the permanent tooth. Tooth loss also causes irreversible bone loss.
There are many warning signs of a tooth infection, including discoloration, a chipped tooth, severe pain, swelling, an abscess near the tooth, swollen lymph nodes, a fever, and difficulty chewing.
However, swelling and an abscess are the giveaways that your child’s tooth is infected. This is a dental emergency, and you should contact us right away for an emergency appointment.
