Restoring an upper primary molar with a stainless steel crown

Orthodontic

Stainless steel crowns (SSC) have been a very successful treatment modality in pediatric dentistry.

Theoretically, they last the lifespan of the tooth. In addition to restoring the tooth, stainless steel crowns offer additional prevention from recurrent decay, especially in high caries-risk children.

Overall, they are easy to place and the new generation SSCs require minimal trimming and manipulation.



Most often a fluoride-releasing glass ionomer is used for the cementation of the final restoration.
