Lillybrook Dental can help with dental fillings for children’s teeth
Dentists at Lillybrook Dental surgery know that dental fillings for children’s teeth can be a disappointing discovery, even when you’ve given the best intentions and care.
Our focus is primarily on preventive care, education, and raising awareness in children about their oral health, so that families are well informed how to attain comfort, wellbeing and best dental appearance.
Yet decay can still occur. When this happens, our priority is to work with you and your child to restore the tooth so it remains strong and safe.

Why are fillings needed?

The reason children’s teeth need fillings include:
  • Decay
  • Incorrect dental development
  • Damage to the tooth caused by trauma or a dental emergency
  • Root canal treatment
  • Tooth discolouration

What’s involved in treatment?

At Lillybrook Dental we are sensitive to children’s needs and understand the prospect of treatment may be quite daunting. An assessment will be made of your child’s needs and options discussed with you.

Time will be taken to build rapport, explain what’s happening and Lillybrook Dental does everything possible to make the procedure manageable, including the use of local anaesthetic and laughing gas (nitrous oxide). If decay in a baby tooth is significant we may recommend a tooth extraction, rather than waiting until the tooth falls out. This prevents the decay spreading to other teeth.

Where a filling is warranted, Lillybrook Dental uses only the highest quality materials for children’s tooth fillings. We will make a recommendation according to your child’s needs.

Still concerned? There is no need to remain concerned whether your child needs a dental filling? Restore your peace of mind along with any teeth your children have that may be damaged by booking an appointment with one of our children’s dentists.

Any invasive or surgical procedure has risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Individual results can vary.
