Dental Crowns and Pulpotomies
The last thing you want for your child’s beautiful smile is a shiny silver dental crown. At Treehouse Children’s Dentistry, we offer healthy restorations that also complement the natural color of your child’s teeth, even after it’s no longer alive.
A pulpotomy is a “baby root canal” that is used to treat severely infected or abscessed teeth. An infected nerve can cause severe pain, damage to the developing adult tooth underneath, and in some circumstances, it can even result in hospitalization.
Pulling the tooth might seem like a short-term solution, but that option can actually jeopardize the eruption patterns of your child’s other teeth. Instead, we salvage the tooth by removing the infected nerve and placing medication inside of it so that it does not continue to decay.
Resin and Ceramic Dental Crowns
After a pulpotomy, the baby tooth needs to have a crown placed over the brittle shell of enamel that is left. Crowns are also used when a cavity is too large for a filling. Our team will show you the tooth on a high-resolution intraoral camera, so that you see exactly the same thing that we do.
Unfortunately, most children’s dentists use stainless steel crowns to repair baby teeth. This can jeopardize the beautiful appearance of your child’s youthful smile. Instead, our children’s dentist office uses naturally colored resin and ceramic crowns!
What to Expect
Once you find out that your child needs a pulp and crown, our treatment coordinator will walk you through the specific treatment procedures and explain the process with you. We will also review any service fees, insurance benefits, and payment options.
If you’re afraid that your child may be too anxious or sensitive to sit through their treatment, be sure to ask about our sedation options! From laughing gas to in-house sleep dentistry, we make the process safe and convenient for your entire family.
The health of your child’s smile now, will impact the health of their smile as an adult. Don’t put care off before it’s too late. Get a free second opinion at our Bonita Springs office by calling us today! Se habla español.
The most important services that we provide for our pediatric patients are those that help them prevent tooth decay and encourage proper tooth development.
I am so grateful to this office , I called with an emergency and they got me in the next day. My son is 6 years old and had an abscessed molar. They were able to see him and even extracted it the same day without a second thought. The girls were so caring and attentive to my son, making sure he was comfortable and relaxed. We will definitely be back for his dental care !
This is my first review anywhere, and I’m proud to say that it is for Treehouse! My 5-year-old literally went from hating the dentist to wanting to be one after just two visits!! After enduring a painstaking root canal and terrible bedside manners at a major competitor, we knew that Treehouse truly cared about my son, and even performed his final root canal successfully with zero issues and in no time at all! They even saved us a fortune by avoiding anesthesia. My family (and wallet) thank you!!!
Just an FYI I just had two clients in my salon this morning who both said they love this practice and it was very affordable. My son needed a dentist this morning and I picked another dentist bc of the review that was left here. When I got to work and told my clients they were both shocked bc both of their two children see dentists at tree house and they all love it. Hope this helps any one else who may turn this place down. I wouldn’t have had I asked clients at the salon first!
