Kids Can Get Dental Crowns, Too Milton, GA
Smiling kids

Dental crowns serve as caps for damaged or weak teeth. This durable, natural-looking cap encases all visible surfaces of the affected tooth. It is common to associate dental crowns with adults, but young smiles are also candidates for this time-tested restorative treatment. In fact, crowns can be an excellent way to protect and strengthen damaged teeth – even if they are baby teeth!

Why Would a Dentist Suggest a Crown for Your Child?

Just like adult teeth, primary teeth can suffer damage beyond what a simple dental filling can repair. Although baby teeth eventually fall out, they still serve important purposes for the time they are there. Baby teeth are considered placeholders for permanent teeth, and they also contribute to your child’s speech development and overall health. Simply pulling a diseased or damaged baby tooth isn’t always best. Therefore, the need to restore the tooth becomes necessary.

There are several reasons that a dentist might decide a dental crown is the best solution, including the following:

  • After a root canal to protect the restored tooth
  • To repair a large cavity that cannot be fixed with a filling
  • To support a bridge when there is a missing tooth
  • To repair damaged teeth (fracture or injury)

In children, dental crowns can not only restore the integrity and health a tooth, but they can also help maintain proper teeth spacing, prevent fracture of a weak tooth or help improve bite alignment.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
