Restorative Dentistry

Doctor Erik Rooklidge on restorative dentistry Read Transcript

If damaged or missing teeth are sapping your child’s confidence, causing pain, or preventing them from eating the foods they love, contact your favorite Sandy, UT dentists at Dentistry for Children for restorative dentistry treatment options!

Whether you visit our Sandy, UT dentists office, West Valley, UT dentist office, or Murray, UT dentist office, Dr. Erik Rooklidge and our other pediatric dentists can repair your little one’s smile!

To ensure your kid’s comfort, we use anesthetic and dental sedation.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

If your child has a cavity, we will use our state-of-the-art Solea CO2 dental laser to both numb your kid’s tooth and remove tooth decay. Then, we will restore the tooth with a tooth-colored filling.

Root Canals And Pulpotomy

If tooth decay has infected soft tissue inside your child’s tooth, we can perform a root canal to gently remove the infection and save your child’s tooth.

We may also be able to remove infected pulp from your child’s baby teeth with a pulpotomy, which is typically a less expensive and faster alternative. We’ll help you decide which option is best for your child’s smile.

We may also cap the tooth with a metal-free dental crown for protection.

Dental Crowns And Dental Bridges

If your child has one or multiple adjacent missing teeth, we can fill the gaps in their smile with a dental bridge. We can also use a same-day dental crown to cover up and repair teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Stained
  • Worn down
  • Broken
  • Decayed

Dental Implants

At Dentistry for Children, our Sandy, UT dentists can place strong dental implants and restore them with dental crowns or dental bridges. We can even implant them immediately following an extraction!

Because dental implants literally fuse with the jawbone, they provide just about the same level of chewing power as natural teeth! Your child will also be able to brush, floss, chew, and speak normally. No one will know they’ve had dental work done!

Let us help your child regain their smile’s beauty and function with restorative dentistry. Call our trusted Sandy, UT dentists at Dentistry for Children today. You can also use our online form.
