PEDIATRIC DENTAL PROSTHETICS

Pediatric dental prosthetic deals with restoring the functions of the dental system by applying fixed prosthesis such as crowns and bridges. The final goal is to offer the patient a solution that covers both the functional and esthetic need, as well as the psychological ease.

The main scope of the prostethics dental treatments is to restore the teeth and limit the negative effects of decays. The dentist will select an appropriate treatment solution for the teen patient in order to maintain and protect the tooth structure and esthetically restore the tooth.

The most common cause of tooth loss (temporary or permanent teeth) is the ignored and untreated dental decay.

 

7 advantages of prosthetic treatment

  1. Restores the masticatory function
  2. Improves the look of your teeth
  3. Restores normal muscular functions
  4. Maintains and improves pronunciation
  5. Protects against tooth decay
  6. Prevents the development of unhealthy oral habits
  7. Reduces the chances of having psychological  issues due to the unpleasant appearance

Prosthetic treatments are performed only after a thorough medical examination and after a treatment plan is determined. This treatment plan aims to restore the health and appearance of the teeth and will be followed by a long term prevention plan.

Restorative treatment is influenced by the following factors:

  • The status of tooth growth
  • Decay risk
  • Dental hygiene
  • How well does the patient cooperate during treatment

What does the prosthetic treatment imply?

According to the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry, the dentist has to use a dental crown to restore a child’s/teenager’s tooth and it’s function (correct masticatory function, muscular function) if:

  • the tooth has been affected by a serious decay on a large surface
  • if it has been fractured or broken
  • if it has undergone endodontic treatment (nerve extraction and root canal obturation).

Dental crowns can be applied on both permanent and temporary teeth and can be manufactured in the laboratory by a technician or can be prefabricated in the case of temporary (milk) teeth.

Dental crowns for temporary teeth usually come in different sizes and the dentist can select the one that fits best. Crowns are made of different materials: some are made of metal, others have a metallic structure and a ceramic facet; there are also crowns with metallic structure and composite or acrylic facets, which have a natural color. Lately, dentists use zirconium crowns for temporary dentition.

Dental crowns can be easily applied to children with temporary (milk) teeth, in just one session. Even if the temporary dentition will be replaced by the permanent dentition, it is very important not to lose teeth to early.

Crowns help with maintaining the health of the dental root (the natural foundation of teeth) and ensure the correct phonetic and masticatory function and all their secondary processes.

It is also advantageous to use dental crowns because they are very strong and have good endurance, so they can last for a long time, especially if the child keeps a correct oral hygiene routine (brushes at least twice a day and uses dental floss).
