No one gets excited when the cavity bugs strike. Even the idea of getting a filling can be nerve-wracking to parents and children alike. Don’t worry! We specialize in fixing kids teeth. Here at Buckeye Pediatric Dentistry, we prefer to use tooth-colored fillings for this work. These fillings blend perfectly in little smiles so your young person can continue to smile with complete confidence. To place these fillings, we:
Gently remove the decayed area
Replace the damaged enamel with the custom-shaded composite material
It is hardened with the help of a special light
Smoothed and shaped to feel just like a natural tooth
We know how much the tongue can magnify even the smallest snag or crack, so we make sure your child will not have any irritating surface roughness. Instead, they leave with a smile that looks and feels like new!
Patient Safety Protocol
As always, our dedication to keeping our patients safe remains our top priority. To help us do that, please be aware of some of the following changes you may see at your next appointment:
We'll be utilizing a virtual waiting room. Please wait in your car until a team member notifies you to head inside.
We will be doing a health screening and taking the temperatures of anyone that enters the building.
We ask that only one guardian accompany a child and to not bring siblings who don't have appointments. Patients over 18 will come in on their own.
Please use the provided hand sanitizer when you come into the office.
Everyone in the building will be asked to wear a mask.
We have staggered appointment times to reduce the number of people in the building at any given time.
Sneeze guards have been installed at the front desk.
We have Air Purification with True H13 HEPA filtration, use UV sterilization for dental equipment, and high-speed suction devices in hygiene to reduce aerosols.
Please let your child know that our team will be wearing extra PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
Our office has always maintained infection protocols that meet and exceed minimal recommendations, and we will continue to do so. In fact, our standard of care is now being adopted as the industry gold-standard in reducing aerosols.
