What is a pediatric crown and its benefits? A crown restores the form and function of a tooth. If a deciduous (baby) tooth has s too much dental decay to warrant a filling, then a crown should be placed.
If the tooth has had a pulpotomy (nerve treatment), a crown is recommend by the America Academy of Pediatric Dentisty (AAPD). Primary teeth, which have had pulpotomies tend to become brittle and are more likely to break if a large filling only is placed.
Our goal is to achieve the best clinical outcome by using the least invasive , most cost effective and long term treatment.
Radford Dental Wellness offers aesthetic tooth colored (white) crowns and stainless steel crown. The types of crowns depend on the patients preference, oral hygiene and the behavior of the patient.
