Drill-Free Cavity Treatment

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) uses a blend of ammonia, silver, water, and fluoride to halt the progression of cavities. If you do not want to have your child’s tooth filled because it will likely fall out soon, or they’re too young to get a filling, SDF is a great option. However, it is typically only used on baby teeth, because SDF stains the tooth black permanently.

Restoring Damaged Teeth

Stainless Steel Crowns

Stainless steel crowns are used to treat severely decayed teeth in kids. They cover up and protect the entire structure, stopping further damage to the affected tooth. 

What to Expect 

Dr. Naik will numb your child’s tooth, trim it to remove decayed material, and reshape it to provide a strong hold for your child’s crown. Then, she will select a pre-fitted crown and bond it into place with dental cement. Minor adjustments will be made, if necessary. Then the procedure is complete. 

Understand the Benefits

Stainless steel crowns are inexpensive, durable, and protect the tooth more effectively than dental fillings. We can help restore your child's oral health with a stainless steel crown today!

Why Should My Child See a Dentist Before Their First Birthday?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that kids see a dentist by their first birthday. Why? Because early, frequent visits to the dentist let your child become more familiar with the process, ensure your dentist can track their oral health as they grow, and reduce the likelihood that they will develop dental anxiety later in life.

How Can I Prepare My Child for Their First Dental Visit?

It can be useful to read some children’s books or watch kids videos about dentistry before coming in for your child’s visit, so that they can learn a little bit about the basics, and what to expect.

We recommend a morning appointment, so that your child won’t be cranky or tired. Be positive before going to the dentist. Kids can sense how you feel, so if you’re nervous, they will be nervous. Use positive reinforcement, and make sure your child feels comfortable while waiting for their appointment.
