Children in Greensboro, NC Getting Stainless Steel Dental Crowns from Triad Pediatric Dentistry

Baby teeth may be temporary, but that does not diminish their importance to the long-term oral health of a child. Many parents are not aware of the important role that baby teeth play in the eventual emergence of permanent teeth. Protecting baby teeth, then, is incredibly important. When simple fillings and other preventative care is not enough, Dr. Sona Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry, recommend stainless steel dental crowns.

Baby teeth are thought of as temporary, and they are, but they still need to last several years. Most children will lose their final baby tooth around the age of 12 to 13. Keeping these teeth healthy until they fall out is critical to ensuring that permanent teeth grow into their correct position with proper spacing. This not only will make your child’s permanent smile beautiful but will help make sure that you are not saddled with expensive and extensive orthodontic care later on.

Stainless Steel

When a baby tooth becomes decayed to the point where fillings are no longer going to be effective, a crown is the next step in making sure the tooth can be restored. This is especially true if pulpal therapy, such as a root canal, has been performed. While many adults who receive crowns will typically elect for ones made of ceramic, the better option for children is stainless steel. There are several reasons for this, including:

  • Stainless steel crowns are durable yet inexpensive
  • They provide full protection coverage of the tooth
  • Cause very minimal sensitivity
  • Future retreatment is less likely to be needed
  • Provide higher success rates than metal fillings in children 4 years and younger
  • Are a great choice for children who require general anesthesia
  • Can be used as an attachment for a space maintainer

When the pulp of the tooth has become infected, pulpal therapy may be required before a crown can be placed. Do not worry though as this is quite a common issue even for young dental patients. If you are interested in learning more about the dental crown options made available by Dr. Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry, please call (336) 804-8668 today!
