At Kids R Us Dentistry in Southwest Calgary, our dentist offers restorative dental services for children including fillings, stainless steel or zirconium crowns, whitening and more.
A cavity, or tooth decay, is an infection of the tooth created by the interaction of the tooth enamel to sugars from foods and germs in the mouth. Germs turn the sugars into acid which softens the enamel and eventually produces a 'hole' in the tooth.
Infants can get germs from parents, caregivers, siblings, and playmates through salivary contact from kissing or sharing objects that go in the mouth.
Cavities can be fixed or restored by the dentist to make the tooth 'whole' again.
We are your children's pediatric dental specialists in Southwest Calgary.
