Cavity treatment

The good oral health of your child is paramount, so we offer a range of tailored care. Our dental treatments are suitable for children: bio-conservative dentistry, pain-free and non-invasive.
New materials are regularly made available to us and new technologies with more biological approaches allow us to achieve the most appropriate care for your child.

If your child has been diagnosed with cavities, they should be treated quickly (otherwise they will continue to bite the tooth).

How to treat the decay of my child?

All caries diagnosed must be treated. Cavities begin with fluoride treatment, but most carious lesions need to be restored with the best restoration material for your child. In cases of deep carious lesions, a pulp treatment must be performed before restoration and for the teeth too dilapidated it is necessary to protect and restore the tooth with a pedodontic crown.

To carry out the dental care of your child in good conditions, we always apply an operative field (a rain coat or cape of superheroes), which consists of stretching a very thin and elastic piece of rubber around one or more tooth (s) to isolate them from their environment during treatment, including bacteria present in saliva of the oral cavity. This protection also has multiple benefits and greatly improves the quality of care.

Aesthetic restorations

We always try to choose the best catering material for your child. We mainly use two white and aesthetic materials: Glass ionomer cement (CVI) or composite.

The benefits of filling materials such as CVIs are their ability to continuously release fluoride into the restored tooth and adjacent teeth, which will protect your child from new carious lesions. The advantages of composites are their aesthetics close to that of dental tissues and their resistance. With these treatments, your child will quickly regain a bright white smile.

Les matériaux de restauration ont beaucoup évolué et apportent bien plus que de la résistance :

  • better seal against bacteria
  • chemical adhesion to dental structures
  • fluoride release
  • aesthetic close to that of dental tissues

Function?

  • Restoring the decayed tooth
  • Restoring a fractured tooth

In which case ?

  • Small caries and semi-deep caries

Treatment of very deep caries

Endodontics refers to pulp treatment of the tooth, which is necessary when the pulp of the tooth is affected. This can happen when the tooth has been traumatized or in the case of very deep decay.

What are the benefits of endodontic treatment?

It is to save the biological tooth of your child that is to say, to keep his natural tooth on the arcade by restoring it a state of health and a normal function. Natural teeth must always be favored, for this reason we make every effort to preserve them. A large decay or accident are factors that can cause irreparable damage to the pulp. It could become infected and cause pain and inflammation. It would then be necessary to perform a treatment of the pulp. For the baby teeth, even a small decay could cause a pulpal infection, because the nerve tissues are superficially. A good endodontic treatment helps to keep the tooth. The alternative ? Have it extracted. It is certainly better to opt for the treatment of the pulp which will not only preserve the tooth but will also prevent other teeth from losing their natural alignment.

In which case ?

  • Deep caries

Avulsion of a decayed tooth

My child has enamel problems? What is a MIH?

Dentiste pédiatrique 93 - MIH

« Molecular hypomineralization, Incisor (MIH) »
A MIH is an abnormality of the tooth. It affects at least one or the first four permanent molars. Permanent incisors can also be reached. Affected teeth have variable size and color spots (white to yellow-brown), with or without loss of dental tissue. It is visible from the appearance of these teeth in the mouth.
The cause is of systemic origin or perhaps the consequence of an event that disrupted the formation (mineralization) of these teeth, for example the taking of antibiotics or drugs against reflux. Even Bisphenols A are believed to be responsible for his enamel problems.Affected teeth are more fragile, break and cariate more easily and quickly, they are more sensitive to brushing, hot, cold, chewing and are more difficult to anesthetize.

We are specialized in the treatment of MIH, which goes through several preventive care, the treatment of carious lesions and loss of enamel and especially by a specific management of pain.
