What is a pediatric crown and its benefits?
A crown restores the form and function of a tooth. If a deciduous (baby) tooth has too much dental decay to warrant a filling, then a crown should be placed.
If the tooth has had a pulpotomy (nerve treatment), a crown is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). Primary teeth, which have had pulpotomies tend to become brittle and are more likely to break if a large filling only is placed.
Our goal is to achieve the best clinical outcome by using the least invasive, most cost-effective, and long term treatment.
Teeth R’ Us Children’s Dentistry offers esthetic tooth-colored (white) crowns and stainless steel crowns. The types of crowns depend on the patient’s preference, oral hygiene, and the behavior of the patient.
