Why Save a Baby Tooth?

Maintaining healthy baby teeth is critical to your child's overall development. These tiny pearly whites help your child eat without pain, ensuring proper nutrition. They also play a role in speech development, allowing your child to learn how to pronounce new sounds.

Primary teeth serve as placeholders for permanent teeth, guiding them into their correct positions. If a baby tooth is lost prematurely due to decay or damage, the nearby teeth may shift toward the gap, leading to crooked teeth and problems with the bite. That usually translates into the need for orthodontic treatment later in life.

Why Would a Baby Tooth Need a Dental Crown?

Tooth decay or a cavity, left untreated, can continue to grow to the point where a simple filling can no longer restore it. A dental crown can protect the damaged tooth, providing strength and resilience and ensuring the affected tooth continues to function normally until its permanent replacement is ready to erupt.

Your child may also require a dental crown after a baby root canal treatment. Just like adult root canals, baby root canals save teeth with infected or damaged pulp. A treated tooth is usually weak and prone to breakage after treatment, requiring a crown for protection.

Different types of crowns are available, each with unique characteristics and applications. At Maitland Pediatric Dentistry, we offer stainless steel and tooth-colored dental crowns for kids.

● Stainless Steel Crowns: Stainless steel crowns offer an affordable and highly durable tooth restoration solution. They come in various shapes and sizes and don’t require impressions. Stainless steel crowns are an excellent choice for the back teeth, which endure the most chewing pressure.
● Tooth-Colored Crowns: While stainless steel crowns are practical for the molars in the back of the mouth, their silver color can interfere with your child’s smile. When it comes to repairing the front teeth, we typically recommend crowns made from a tooth-colored material. Our aesthetic restorations mimic the natural appearance of tooth enamel while offering a durable solution to restore your child's smile.

Prevention is the best way to keep your child’s teeth healthy and sound. Encourage your little one to maintain good oral hygiene habits, including regular brushing and flossing. Limit sugary or sticky treats, which increase the risk of tooth decay and cavities. If your child is engaged in contact sports, we recommend a sports mouthguard for protection.

Make sure to keep up with your child’s regular dental exams and cleanings. Our dedicated pediatric dentist and team will monitor your child and ensure any problem is treated promptly to prevent it from progressing and needing extensive treatments.
