Why Do Children Need Dental Crowns?

Children’s teeth are at great risk for developing cavities. Even though baby teeth are temporary, they play a vital role in your child’s smile and should receive proper care. When your child’s baby teeth are severely decayed, fillings are unlikely to be an effective treatment. Instead, our pediatric dentist may recommend a stainless-steel dental crown. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends stainless steel dental crowns as the treatment of choice for children with extensive tooth decay or who have received a pulpotomy (a root canal procedure for primary teeth).

Benefits of Pediatric Dental Crowns

A stainless-steel crown provides many benefits, including:

  • Durability
  • Inexpensive treatment
  • Complete protection for the affected tooth
  • Little to no tooth sensitivity following treatment
  • Reduced likelihood of retreatment
  • Greater success than fillings in children younger than age 4
  • Children who need general anesthesia are more easily treated
  • Effective space maintainers — in fact, stainless steel crowns are often used as attachments for space maintainers
