Repair Your Child’s Smile With Restorative Dentistry in Sandy & West Valley

If damaged or missing teeth are sapping your child’s confidence, causing pain or preventing them from eating the foods they love, contact Dentistry for Children for restorative dentistry. Dr. Erik Rooklidge and associates take seriously the task of rebuilding your child’s smile. Our dental restorations will:

  • Give your child back a beautiful smile they’ll be proud to show off
  • Put an end to dental discomfort and pain
  • Help your child maintain proper self-esteem
  • Let you rest confidently knowing that their smile is healthy and attractive

To ensure your kiddo’s comfort, we use anesthetic and offer dental sedation if desired. Call either of our convenient locations to schedule an appointment in Sandy, Utah, or in West Valley, Utah.

Tooth-Colored Fillings Repair Cavities Without Metal

If your child has a cavity, we will use our state-of-the-art Solea® CO2 dental laser to painlessly numb the tooth and remove decay at the same time. No shots required! We will then restore the tooth with a tooth-colored filling that will blend in naturally with their other teeth.

Your child won’t have the embarrassment of a silver filling showing whenever they grin. As a parent, you’ll feel good knowing that their smile looks as natural as it can.

Save Your Child’s Tooth With Root Canal Treatment or Pulpotomy

If tooth decay has infected the soft tissue inside your child’s tooth, we can perform root canal therapy to gently remove the infection and save the tooth.

If your little one’s baby teeth become diseased, we may be able to remove the infected pulp with a pulpotomy, which is typically a less expensive and faster alternative to a root canal.

We may also cap the tooth with a beautiful, metal-free dental crown to strengthen and protect it.

Dental Crowns & Dental Bridges Restore Confidence

If your child has one or multiple adjacent missing teeth, we can fill the gaps in their smile with a dental bridge. We can also use a same-day zirconia crown to cover and repair teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Stained
  • Worn down
  • Broken
  • Decayed

We’ll make your child’s new crown right here in our office. You won’t have to wait weeks for it to be made in a lab and then shipped in. Their smile can be whole again in one easy appointment!

Replace Your Child’s Missing Teeth With Dental Implants

At Dentistry for Children, we can place sturdy dental implants and restore them with crowns or bridges. We can even place them immediately following a tooth extraction.

Dental implants fuse with the jawbone and provide almost all the chewing power as your child’s natural teeth. Implants also stimulate the bone, helping keep it healthy. Your child will be able to brush, chew and speak normally. No one will know they have a replacement tooth!

Contact Dentistry for Children today to schedule with our dentists and give your child back the beauty and function of their smile using restorative dentistry.
