At Sunshine Pediatric Dentistry, your children’s dental health is our top priority. This is why we use BPA-free fillings, a type of filling that is healthier and safer for your child.
What is BPA?
BPA stands for bisphenol A. It is an industrial chemical that many products, from plastics to dental fillings, contain. It is a known endocrine disruptor and may interfere with thyroid function. Experts say to avoid exposure to BPA by using fewer plastics and limiting your use of canned foods, the resin of many canned foods has BPA. Some, but not all, composite fillings have BPA.
At Sunshine Pediatric Dentistry, we make sure our composite fillings do not contain any BPA. When it comes to your children’s health, we take every measure to ensure your children only receive the best dental care, as well as the highest-quality materials available.
BPA-Free Composite Fillings
Composite fillings are one of the most widely used fillings today. Since composite fillings are tooth-colored, they closely match the color of your children’s teeth, so no one has to know your children has fillings. This can especially benefit older children, who may feel embarrassed by the look of silver fillings or amalgams. BPA-free composite fillings are not only safe for children, but they are also natural-looking so you can’t even tell they are there!
We place fillings if your child has decay, a cracked tooth, or a worn or broken tooth. Often, a filling is the best option to restore a tooth that has decay.
