Dental Crowns for Children from Dr. Reder
A full coverage crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. This is indicated when a large portion of the tooth structure has been infected by caries-causing bacteria, or a pulpectomy/pulpotomy has been done. This helps to support the remaining tooth structure and allows the baby tooth to stay in the mouth and keep the space for the permanent tooth to erupt. The crown should last until the tooth comes out naturally.
