Questions about crowns for kids

Why choose steel crowns for kids?

Steel crowns work wonders for shielding back teeth (molars) affected by decay or improper formation. They’re sturdy, capable of handling chewing forces, and excellent for safeguarding your child’s primary teeth until permanent ones come in naturally.

How do crowns protect my child’s teeth?

Crowns cover the entire tooth, providing a strong barrier against further decay, damage, or infection. This protection is crucial, especially for molars, which do a lot of heavy lifting during chewing. By shielding the affected tooth, crowns help maintain the tooth’s integrity and prevent the spread of decay.

What can I expect during the crown fitting process?

Our West Orange dental crowns process involves 2 steps: First, we’ll gently prepare your child’s tooth, ensuring it’s the right shape for the crown. Then, we’ll fit the crown over the tooth, making sure it fits perfectly. Throughout the process, we make sure your child is relaxed and comfortable, using sedation if necessary.

How do we care for crowns at home?

Encourage your child to keep up with their usual good oral hygiene habits: brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Avoiding hard and sticky foods can help protect the crowns. And of course, regular dental check-ups are essential to ensure the crowns are doing their job.

Can crowns adjust as my child grows?

Crowns don’t grow, but they are designed to fit in with your child’s natural growth. As your child grows, their mouth and teeth change too. We’ll keep a close eye on how the crowns are fitting during regular dental check-ups and make any adjustments if necessary. And when it’s time, the crowns will naturally make way for your child’s permanent teeth to come in.

Caring for your child’s present and future smile
