Restorative dentistry can help alleviate these problems and get your loved one back to smiling brightly. Contact our Corsicana, TX practice today to schedule your first appointment with our team! We love seeing new patients from Ennis, TX and other nearby areas.
Periodontal disease, an inflammation of the gums that can cause extensive damage if left untreated, is more common in children than you might think. They’re just beginning their oral health care journey, and they don’t always understand proper brushing and flossing techniques. That’s why oral health education and preventive dental care are so important. Once gum disease becomes a problem for your child, we provide periodontal therapy to bring the gums back to good health.
Should your child break a tooth or develop a cavity, we can provide him or her with a tooth-colored filling to reverse the damage. Rebuilding your child’s teeth with restorative children’s dentistry now will help prevent even bigger problems later.
Additional restorative services we offer include the following:
If your son or daughter has experienced a cracked or chipped tooth, bad tooth decay that can’t be treated with a filling, or other restorative issues, a personalized restoration can rebuild their dental structure in a strong and lifelike way – and in many cases, we can complete it in just one appointment for maximum convenience. At Corsicana Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. James offers dental crowns, inlays, onlays, and other options. Kids won’t even be able to tell the difference!
Our team will always do everything in our power to help your child maintain their natural teeth, but there are cases where extraction may be the best option for their safety and overall wellbeing. This includes cases of traumatic injuries, improper wisdom teeth, and the need to make space for orthodontic corrections. If Dr. James determines this procedure is necessary, he’ll be sure to keep your child feeling comfortable and at ease throughout the procedure with fun amenities and sedation dentistry, if needed.
