A Variety of Options for Cavities
Dr. Steyer only uses composite resin (tooth colored) fillings as opposed to amalgam (silver) fillings which contain mercury. If a crown is necessary for the front teeth, we offer a porcelain crown or a composite crown. Both are tooth colored. For back teeth, the options of a porcelain crown (tooth colored) or a stainless steel crown (silver) are available.
About Our Pulpotomy Procedure
Some teeth require a pulpotomy. In a sense, a pulpotomy is a root canal procedure for a baby tooth. The top part of the nerve is removed and replaced with a medicated filling, to keep the rest of the tooth alive, and then covered completely with a crown.
Tooth Extractions and Space Maintainers
There are occasions when a tooth cannot be restored. For these cases, an extraction and orthodontic treatment may be necessary. If your child needs a tooth extracted and the space needs to be held open for the permanent tooth to erupt, Dr. Steyer may recommend a space maintainer.
