There are lots of reasons that your child may need a dental crown to protect their mouth. And at Saginaw Kids Dentistry, our mission is to protect their smile. No matter the reason that your child needs a crown, Dr. Elias and Dr. Christina will provide the child-friendly care they need in a comfortable environment. Here are just a few reasons why your child may need a crown in Saginaw, TX.
If your child has a very deep cavity in their tooth, a filling may not be appropriate. Large fillings tend to be unstable and may wear out quickly. Crowns offer superior protection, and will help keep the tooth healthy and prevent further decay.
If your child breaks or chips a tooth, a dental crown is usually the best way to repair their tooth and restore their smile. Depending on the extent of the damage, endodontic treatment like a pulpotomy (baby root canal) may also be needed to restore the inside of the tooth.
Tooth infections can happen due to oral injuries or deep cavities that reach the inside (pulp) of the tooth. A treatment like a pulpotomy will be necessary to remove the infection. After the infection has been treated, Dr. Elias or Dr. Christina will “cap” and cover the tooth with a dental crown. This protects the tooth from further damage.
We provide expert pediatric care for kids of all ages, including infants.
