You may not think it, but maintaining a child’s primary teeth is important for their overall oral development as they grow into adolescence. Primary teeth form the foundation of an adult’s smile and dictate the health and uniformity of permanent teeth. That is why it is vital to keep baby teeth healthy for as long as possible and avoid tooth removal until they fall out naturally.
At Citrus Smiles, our dentists offer stainless-steel crowns in Murphy and Wylie, Texas, if a child’s tooth cannot be restored by a normal dental filling. Recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry as the most effective treatment for children with excessive dental decay and those who have received a pulpotomy, stainless-steel crowns are an inexpensive, efficient way to restore the health of a child’s tooth and protect against future dental damage.
- Reduced tooth sensitivity
- 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
We want your child’s smile to be as healthy as possible and are committed to providing care that achieves this. Contact our office at 972-472-8862 today to learn more and schedule a visit with our dentists.
