Stainless Steel Crowns
Why do Dentists Use Stainless Steel Crowns?
Primary teeth may be temporary for children, but they are crucial to the final permanent tooth eruption. They help kids learn the basics, such as chewing, speaking, and keeping adult teeth space. The first baby tooth will appear at approximately six months and the rest by two years. During this time, caring for their oral health is essential.
The size and enamel of the primary pearly whites are different from permanent teeth. The enamel is thinner, and the inner pulp portion is closer to the surface, making it easy for infection to spread through the enamel and into the pulp. The dentist may use a filling to repair the tooth and prevent the need for further treatment. The dentist will put a crown in place if the child receives pulpal therapy to remove the decay and caries.
Crowns stainless steel:
- Are easy to apply and provide coverage for the entire tooth
- Use safe metals
- Fall out naturally with the primary tooth
- Used as space maintainers in the baby’s mouth for permanent teeth
