The pedodontic crown is a temporary restoration of a severely damaged tooth in children.
In many cases, our conservative treatments and restorers allow us to save a very damaged tooth. Adopting a conservative and non-invasive philosophy,
we take the necessary steps to preserve the diseased temporary teeth, in order to naturally maintain the space for the definitive teeth.
For this purpose, we may have to offer you a ceramic pedodontic crown.
The crowns are on the molars, but also on the anterior teeth, that is to say on the incisors and canines.

What are the manufacturing materials?
The good oral health of your child is paramount, so we offer a range of tailored care. Our dental treatments are suitable for children: bio-conservative dentistry, pain-free, and non-invasive.
New materials are regularly made available to us and new technologies with more biological approaches allow us to achieve the most appropriate care for your child.
If your child has been diagnosed with cavities, they should be treated quickly (otherwise they will continue to bite the tooth).
All caries diagnosed must be treated. Cavities begin with fluoride treatment, but most carious lesions need to be restored with the best restoration material for your child. In cases of deep carious lesions, a pulp treatment must be performed before restoration and for the teeth too dilapidated it is necessary to protect and restore the tooth with a pedodontic crown.
To carry out the dental care of your child in good conditions, we always apply an operative field (a rain coat or cape of superheroes), which consists of stretching a very thin and elastic piece of rubber around one or more tooth (ee) to isolate them from their environment during treatment, including bacteria present in saliva of the oral cavity. This protection also has multiple benefits and greatly improves the quality of care.
We always try to choose the best catering material for your child. We mainly use two white and aesthetic materials: Glass ionomer cement (CVI) or composite.
The benefits of filling materials such as CVIs are their ability to continuously release fluoride into the restored tooth and adjacent teeth, which will protect your child from new carious lesions. The advantages of composites are their aesthetics close to that of dental tissues and their resistance. With these treatments, your child will quickly regain a bright white smile.
Restoration materials have evolved a lot and bring much more than resistance:
In which case ?
Endodontics refers to pulp treatment of the tooth, which is necessary when the pulp of the tooth is affected. This can happen when the tooth has been traumatized or in the case of very deep decay.
It is to save the biological tooth of your child that is to say, to keep his natural tooth on the arcade by restoring it a state of health and a normal function. Natural teeth must always be favored, for this reason we make every effort to preserve them. A large decay or accident are factors that can cause irreparable damage to the pulp. It could become infected and cause pain and inflammation. It would then be necessary to perform a treatment of the pulp. For the baby teeth, even a small decay could cause a pulpal infection, because the nerve tissues are superficially. A good endodontic treatment helps to keep the tooth. The alternative ? Have it extracted. It is certainly better to opt for the treatment of the pulp which will not only preserve the tooth but will also prevent other teeth from losing their natural alignment.
In which case ?
Our philosophy is to always keep a tooth through restoration techniques. However, some situations require that a tooth be extracted.
In which case ?
Unfortunately, it is sometimes necessary to extract a tooth following trauma, infection or to facilitate orthodontic treatment. The philosophy of our office is to save the teeth whenever it is possible,but when it is necessary to extract one or more teeth, we always make sure to perform this act in the best conditions. We take the time necessary to perform this gesture gently, always perform an effective local anesthesia and if necessary to perform the act under sedation conscious with the MEOPA for the greater comfort of your child. Your child will be able to get his tooth back for the little mouse and we will also give him a diploma for his courage. The written recommendations will be given to you and we will remain at your disposal by e-mail or telephone. We always recommend that you place a space-saving device if a tooth is lost prematurely.
The baby teeth have an important function of maintaining the space for permanent teeth. In case of premature loss of a milk tooth, the space maintainer is a very effective means of combating orthodontic complications. When milk teeth are lost at a very young age because of "bottle-feeding syndrome" or trauma, they must be replaced. We produce fixed space-maintaining devices that are aesthetically presentable. These devices consist of artificial teeth, an orthodontic wire and rings that are cemented on the posterior teeth of the child. The space-saving device must remain in the mouth until the permanent tooth appears. For optimal comfort, good oral hygiene and regular monitoring are necessary. Every child has the right to keep a beautiful smile even if he has lost a tooth prematurely!
