Children’s Dental Fillings

A children’s dental filling is a great way to correct any mistakes. Your children’s teeth are very important for the future of their health. Unfortunately, children love eating foods that simply put, are not beneficial to their oral health. The common culprit here is candy. Candies contain sugars that bacteria in our mouths absolutely love. They love it as much as children love candy!

A dental filling is performed on a child when slight traces of tooth decay appear on the tooth. Usually the beginning stages take a trained eye by a professional to detect, but later stages of decay become more prominent such as telltale pain symptoms. If your child has not had their permanent teeth come in yet, dental fillings are still recommended in order to prevent decay from damaging any permanent teeth that are forming inside the gums.

We want to make sure your child’s dental filling is as comfortable as possible, with minimal to no pain. Our Las Vegas children’s dentist knows how to work with kids to ensure they feel safe during the procedure. First, an anesthetic gel is applied to the tooth receiving the dental filling to numb the area. Then, a shot is applied to the area that your child will only feel pressure from, not pain. This shot will completely numb the area, allowing the dentist to complete the procedure with ease.

As with any mistake, something should be learned from it. If a child has a dental filling performed, then perhaps they need more motivation to keep up with their brushing routine. We’ve all been there… children absolutely dislike this brushing. They want more time to spend having fun rather than worrying about oral hygiene. Completely understandable, except tooth pain is never fun!


★★★★★ In my opinion, Dentistry For Children NV is one of the best Dentist Practices in Las Vegas. Dr. Dennis Clark and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and have a genuine interest in your wellbeing. I used to hate going to the dentist because of feeling like I was just another patient. All of which, went away when I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Clark.

★★★★★ I came to Dentistry For Children NV fleeing from my previous dentist, and it was the best decision. Dr. Clark was very professional and caring and listened to my concerns that were not taken into account at my previous doctor. The office was very clean and orderly and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they take not only dental hygiene seriously but cleanliness in general as a big priority.
