Just like Tick-Tock the Crocodile is always trying to take a bite out of Captain Hook, cavities can take a bite out of your child’s teeth. Without proper brushing and flossing, plaque builds up on the tooth’s surface and bacteria begin munching away at the protective enamel. If this happens long enough, this will leave a hole in your child’s tooth. To repair decayed teeth, our pediatric dentist may recommend that your child receive a dental filling in South Jordan, Utah. The goal of a filling is to remove hungry plaque and bacteria, and replace them with a partial tooth restoration. To schedule your child’s appointment with Dr. Thayne Gardner, we invite you call Little People's Dental at (801) 999-1426.
