Although your child’s primary or baby teeth are only temporary, your child still needs them to be healthy and intact. Obviously, they help your child eat and speak properly, but they also act as “placeholders” to help your child’s permanent teeth erupt as they should. So, baby teeth are vital for your child to have a healthy smile.
If your child does develop a severe cavity, our pediatric dentists may suggest using a pediatric dental crown to address the problem. In many cases, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends using a stainless steel dental crown to protect a decayed tooth or one that has had a pulpotomy.
Why choose stainless steel crowns?
