If you’ve got a cavity, there’s no way around it — it’s got to be filled. Leaving tooth decay untreated leads to even more serious problems down the road, like root canals or teeth that need to be pulled. There’s no way around it: the simplest way to deal with decay is to face it now, and get a filling.
You don’t have an option in getting a filling, but you do have options in what the filling is made out of. These days, you don’t have to fill your mouth with silver and gold — and we want you to know that you shouldn’t. At Midwest Dental Center, we use composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, to give you a high-quality fix that looks just like your natural tooth.

Maybe you know Dr. Kendrick as your own trusted dentist in Midway City — but did you know he’s an expert in little smiles, too? That’s right. Dr. Kendrick knows how crucial good dental care is for Oklahomans of all ages, and that’s why he begins seeing little patients at the age of two or three, once all of their primary teeth have erupted. That may seem a little young for a trip to the dentist, but tooth decay can begin with your child’s very first tooth.

As a parent, you do everything can to ensure that your children and happy, safe, and healthy. Why should it be any different when it comes to the health of their teeth and gums? You help them keep up with their brushing and flossing, of course, but there’s more to healthy pearly whites than home hygiene. At Midwest Dental Center in Midwest City, OK, Dr. Steven Kendrick and his team offer a full range of children’s dentistry services to keep your little one’s smile looking and feeling its best.
Pediatric Dentistry Midwest City Parents Can Trust
Pediatric dentistry encompasses everything your child’s teeth and gums need to stay healthy as they grow and change. The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry agree that children should visit the dentist for the first time by the time they are one year old. Early childhood dentistry sets the stage for a lifetime of good oral health practices.
In order to ensure that your son or daughter gets off on the right track, we offer a comprehensive menu of pediatric dentistry services, including:
- Thorough exams, focusing on proper development and hygiene
- Gentle cleanings
- Fluoride supplements to keep teeth strong
- Dental sealants to keep bacteria away from hard-to-reach spaces
- Metal-free, tooth-colored fillings
- Custom athletic mouthguards for patients who play contact sports
Because we understand that the dentist’s office can prove a scary and unfamiliar place to many children, we work hard to promote a relaxed, comfortable environment where your child can feel safe and positive about the entire experience. We’ll also always keep you informed of the status of your little one’s oral health, so you can feel comfortable in the decisions you make regarding treatment.
