Developmental Abnormalities

Sometimes there are disturbances when a child is developing, which can cause discoloration and/or deformation of his teeth. These disturbances can be local, disturbing only one or a few teeth, or they can be systemic, disturbing most of the teeth. These defects can affect normal chewing as well as adversely affect the child’s looks (which can cause emotional problems). Your pediatric dentist can provide comprehensive treatment that will not only restore the teeth to their normal function and appearance but will also help your child feel better about his/her looks.
