Has your child developed severe decay in their baby teeth? When fillings are no longer an effective option, we can provide baby tooth crowns at Idaho Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics. These crowns can strengthen your child’s teeth and prevent further oral health issues. Contact us to learn more about baby tooth dental crowns and to schedule an appointment with our team!

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 doctors 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).

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

Our doctors and team are committed to providing your child with the best possible treatments to help them develop strong smiles and enjoy long-term oral health. We invite you to contact our office today for more information about stainless steel dental crowns for baby teeth and to make an appointment with our doctors.
