Dr. Erik Rooklidge, Sandy, UT dentist, and our other dentists can even fix every issue with your little one’s teeth through a full-mouth reconstruction!

Our Restorative Dentistry Options

Children can be picky eaters. But if your child has damaged or missing teeth, there may be another reason they’re avoiding fruits and vegetables: dental pain.

If you need to replace damaged or missing teeth in your child’s smile, dental implants offer a sturdy foundation for teeth replacement options, including dental crowns and dental bridges. Unlike many other dentists, we can extract a problem tooth and place a dental implant restored with a same-day dental crown in a single visit!

If dental implants are not right for your child, we can replace one or more adjacent missing teeth with a traditional dental bridge. We can also custom-make a zirconia dental crown to cap a damaged tooth for added strength, protection, and improved appearance.

We can also get rid of infections inside your kid’s teeth with a gentle root canal.

Yet another option is a tooth filling. Using our state-of-the-art Solea CO2 dental laser, we will simultaneously numb your child’s tooth and remove tooth decay!

Dental Sedation For Improved Comfort

If there is any chance of discomfort, we will numb the area with an anesthetic. Our calming, soothing team inDentistry for Children can also make treatments more comfortable and help relieve your child’s dental anxiety with dental sedation options!
