In addition to traditional restorative dental treatment (fillings and stainless steel crowns), at Dear Tooth Fairy we offer non-invasive dental treatment that involves “NO DRILLING” techniques, including:
(1) SDF (Silver Diamine Fluoride).and SMART
A 38 percent SDF solution is used for the arrest of cavitated caries lesions in primary teeth, i.e., to stop the decay in baby teeth. This technique is sometimes combined with a GI (glass ionomer) filling and called a “SMART” filling.
Tooth friendly filling by infiltration – no drilling needed. In addition, this treatment optically blends and makes the “white spots” fade away on the front teeth.
(3) Hall crowns
Stainless steel crowns are placed without local anesthesia and drilling. This treatment is not for everyone but when appropriate, it provides a very effective quick and pain-free dental treatment without the need for more extensive behavior management modalities such as laughing gas anxiolysis and IV sedation.
(4) LSTR (Lesion Sterilization and Tissue Repair)
Instead of extracting an infected tooth, a pulpotomy (“baby root canal”) can be completed with an antibiotic medicament. Again, in order for this to be successful there are certain conditions that must be met.
