Baby Teeth Dental Crowns

Dr. Pang, Dr. Chen, or Dr. Mo provide dental crowns to help protect damaged baby teeth and keep your child’s smile healthy. Your child’s crown will help strengthen the tooth and extend the life of the tooth so that it can remain healthy and in place while your child’s mouth is growing and developing. Call OPDSF Pediatric Dentistry at (415) 661-8383 to learn more about baby teeth dental crowns in San Francisco, California, and to set up your child’s appointment with our pediatric dentists.

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 dentists 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 pediatric dentists 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.
