Your child’s teeth are important for more than just a beautiful smile. They also allow them to develop the oral functions necessary for chewing and speaking. As a result, it’s essential their teeth stay strong and healthy. The biggest threat to their dental health is tooth decay. Although it’s preventable, 20% of children between the ages 5 to 11 have at least one untreated cavity. Traditionally, they are treated with metal fillings because they are durable and effective; however, they also come with certain disadvantages. Your pediatric dentist in Midland can save your child’s smile with a natural-looking solution. Tooth-colored fillings are the ideal alternative to give them a beautiful, healthy smile.
