Crowns for Kids
At Changing Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we will always try to prevent dental problems before they occur. Unfortunately, many children need some form of restorative dentistry treatment due to tooth decay or gum disease. Significant damage or tooth decay may even require the placement of a dental crown.
Reasons for Child Dental Crowns
The underlying goal of all dental crowns is to save a tooth from extraction or tooth loss. However, we may recommend a crown for a variety of reasons. The most common reasons include:
An early childhood cavity can cause so much damage that it threatens the life of a primary or baby tooth. While primary teeth eventually fall out, the premature loss of a tooth can create greater complications for your child’s oral health. The most common issues are misaligned or impacted permanent teeth.
If the damage to a primary tooth is severe, a crown may be the only option. Depending on the location of the tooth, we may recommend a crown to restore its appearance.
