Fillings – Many adults suffer from tooth decay throughout their life for many reasons, and cavities are even more common for children. We make a point of removing decayed areas while properly restoring the appearance and function of both baby and adult teeth to ensure that the restoration is reliable. Your child’s comfort is also among our top priorities during any restoration; you can feel confident knowing that we will do everything we can to keep your child comfortable and safe.
Broken and Chipped Teeth - Most children are very active when they play, and unexpected falls can lead to chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. We practice many types of restoration techniques such as dental crowns or bridges to restore the damaged tooth’s functionality while retaining a natural appearance for both baby and adult teeth.
Extractions – Dr. Culp encourages kids to “wiggle out” their own baby teeth, but there are occasional reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted. Reasons include advanced decay or the request of an orthodontist for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Culp and his team perform tooth extractions almost daily, and it is typically a very smooth and easy process!
Pulp and Crown – Occasionally, the nerve of a tooth may need to be treated in order to save the tooth and preserve the nerve structure. When this occurs, Dr. Culp places a crown after treating the nerve in order to preserve the tooth functionality and structure until its permanent replacement arrives.
