Pediatric Restorative Care in The Woodlands, TX
Dental fillings are used to treat cavities or to repair cracked or broken teeth. Dr. Rojas removes the decayed portion of the tooth and then fills the area to restore it.
The crown is a tooth shaped covering which protects the tooth. It is cemented into place and is meant to be there until the primary tooth comes out. A crown prevents food from lodging into the teeth and allowing for the atmosphere required for a cavity to arise.
A pulpotomy / pulpectomy is the partial or complete removal of nerve tissue from inside the tooth that has been contaminated with bacteria from a deep cavity or as a complication from a traumatic injury. A soothing medication is placed inside the tooth before the final restoration is placed.
