Have you heard that dental crowns can be used on children’s teeth? There are lots of situations where a dental crown could be the greatest option for a child. We’ve amassed this info on when that might be the case; give us a call as soon as possible if you feel your child could benefit from being installed with a dental crown.

It’s no secret that children enjoy candy and sweet drinks, but unfortunately those things can leave children with large cavities. Dental crowns can be utilized for children with cavities so grave that they’re unable to be filled. Another use of dental crowns for children is to guard children who are at risk for tooth decay and periodontal disease, such as children with diabetes or children who don’t practice good dental hygiene habits. Finally, dental crowns may be able to replace the use of medical anesthetic services for children who do not meet the requirements for such procedures.
