Dentist in Greensboro Provides Stainless Steel Crowns to Help Preserve Baby Teeth

Protecting your child’s primary (baby) teeth until they naturally fall out plays several crucial roles in the health and development of your child’s mouth. If your child develops a large cavity or decay in a primary tooth, Dr. Sona Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry in Greensboro, NC may recommend getting a stainless steel crown placed to protect the tooth from further damage.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry has found that tooth decay is a leader in chronic childhood diseases. By the time your kids reach kindergarten, they could be part of the 40% of children who will have already had a dental cavity. Furthermore, it’s been found that 1 of 5 children in the age range of 5 to 11 will have tooth decay that remains untreated. Treating a decaying tooth for a child can be tricky, but one solution that has proven very effective is to cap the affected tooth (after the decay has been removed) with a stainless steel crown.

Baby Teeth Are Worth Saving

Some parents may be under the impression that, due to their temporary nature, losing a primary tooth is not a big deal. There are several reasons why this is not the case, including the fact that if a primary tooth is lost, other teeth can crowd into the resulting gap and leave little room for the permanent tooth to fit into later. Losing a primary tooth may also cause long-term chewing problems or cause significant bite problems, as well as cause issues with saying certain speech sounds.

The enamel of a primary tooth is considerably thinner than that of a permanent adult tooth, and as a result, decay can also spread very rapidly. This is what makes getting a stainless steel crown so effective, as it will preserve the remaining healthy tooth material.

Benefits of Stainless Steel Crowns

Stainless steel crowns offer several benefits for baby teeth:

  • They are durable yet inexpensive
  • They offer full-coverage protection of the tooth
  • The crowned teeth are less likely to require re-treatment
  • For children who are under the age of 4, they are more successful than metal fillings
  • They can be used as an attachment for a space maintainer
