Here at Turnage Family Dentistry we make it fun for children to come in and have a cavity filled. It is our goal to make it as stress free on the child as possible.
The child is placed on Nitrous to help relax them. Dr. Turnage and the dental assistants play a fun game with the kids as they place and remove the special jelly from the tooth that puts the “sugar bugs” to sleep so that we can catch them.
It is important that once a cavity is found on a child that they be removed and a filling be placed as soon as possible to prevent the decay from growing further into the tooth.
