Restorative Care

Sometimes children develop cavities.  It is important to restore (fix) these cavities not only in permanent teeth, but also in baby teeth.  Baby teeth are important for eating, smiling, speaking, and helping to guide the permanent teeth into the mouth at the appropriate time.  A cavity left untreated could lead to infection, causing pain and even serious medical complications, and possibly damage the permanent tooth.

At Dr. Egg Pediatric Dentistry, we offer several options for treating your child, should he/she develop a cavity:

  • Traditional dental treatment in the chair, using local anesthesia only
  • Treatment in chair using local anesthesia and nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
  • Conscious (oral) analgesia
  • General Anesthesia at New Hanover Regional Medical Center
