Trusted Provider for Pediatric Dental Crowns in Succasunna
A crown is simply a cover placed over your child’s damaged or decayed tooth to restore its original structure and function. Some people refer to a crown as a “cap.” According to our board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Michia Johnson Harris, your child’s tooth may require a crown if a dental filling is not enough of a repair. A crown can help strengthen your child’s teeth and improve the necessary ability to bite and chew.
Why Is a Crown Needed for a Baby Tooth?
Parents often ask us if it is better to simply pull out the affected baby tooth, instead of going through the process of putting a crown on what is a temporary tooth. However, your child’s primary, or baby teeth, play an important role in creating the appropriate space for adult teeth. If the area of the missing tooth is left without anything in its place, eventually the surrounding teeth will move and shift towards the gap, leaving inadequate space for the permanent teeth to grow in properly.
Options for Pediatric Dental Crowns in Succasunna, NJ
You may recall that historically the only option to restore a primary tooth that was broken or decayed was to place a stainless steel crown. However, Roxbury Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry now offers more aesthetically pleasing Figaro crowns that not only completely match natural tooth color but are also BPA-free. We understand that while some children may enjoy showing off a shiny stainless steel crown, other kids may prefer not to have their teeth stand out in any way. Our pediatric dentist will discuss the available options so that you can make the decision best for your child.
