Dental Crowns for Children

As an adult, when a tooth is badly damaged, a crown can be placed on the tooth to help it avoid any further damage or decay. When a child needs a dental crown, it may be for slightly different reasons. A dental crown can help your child’s smile grow correctly when a baby tooth has been prematurely lost or damaged. Dr. Scott Bennett, Dr. Kirsten West-Bennett, and Dr. James Bennett at Bennett Dental Group in Westminster, CO, can explain how dental crowns can help your child’s smile and the importance of family dentistry to keep your child’s smile healthy for years.

Dental Crowns for Children

When a child’s tooth is prematurely lost or damaged, you may think it’s not the biggest deal because that’s what baby teeth do. Baby teeth are supposed to fall out and be replaced by permanent adult teeth, but when a tooth is pulled earlier than it should be, it may cause the other teeth to grow in incorrectly because of the extra space that has now been made in your child’s smile. Your family dentistry practitioners in Westminster, CO, provide dental crowns that can serve as a placeholder for a missing tooth in your child’s smile.

A dental crown can be installed in your child’s smile to protect their entire set of teeth in the long run. This will help them maintain the healthy smile they need for their future. A dental crown can help protect a damaged tooth and can keep your child’s teeth from growing in incorrectly after a tooth has been lost and isn’t ready to be replaced by an adult tooth.
