Dental caries in deciduous teeth is a condition that progresses even 10 times faster than in the case of permanent teeth, which is why, in many cases the tooth can be rebuilt only by using a zirconia dental crown. 

Untreated dental caries cause local infections  that can affect the child’s internal organs as well as their general health.

Moreover, it is important to remember that baby teeth or milk teeth must be present on the arches for as long as possible, because they have a role in: 

  • Chewing, which influences the child’s digestion
  • Correct speech development
  • Maintaining space for permanent teeth 
  • Guide the permanent teeth to the normal position

In the case of a small cavity, the pediatric dentist can reconstruct the tooth by a simple filling. However, if the tooth is affected by deep cavities or the cavity is spread over two or more dental surfaces, it is often necessary to use a dental crown.

What are zirconia crowns?

Zirconia crowns represent the revolutionary solution when it comes to restorations of affected teeth, with a prosthetic piece which reshapes the form, colour and function of the tooth.

 

 

When are zirconia crowns recommended?

Zirconia crowns represent the revolutionary solution when it comes to restorations of affected teeth, with a prosthetic piece which reshapes the form, colour and function of the tooth.

 

Zirconia crowns are recommended for teeth that are:

  • Affected by medium or deep cavities.
  • Fractured as a result of trauma.
  • Unusual when it comes to shape, colour or dimension.
  • Teeth that have suffered endodontic treatments.

 

Why do we use zirconia crowns?

  • They are created for children.
  • They are made from 100% Zirconia, tested and recognised for its durability and resistance.
  • They are made in California, USA, and have been used for over 12 years by doctors from around the world.
Zirconia crowns characteristics:
  1. Flat-Fit form™

    Anatomic form which gives functionality and a natural aspect to teeth. Zir-Lock structure®

  2. Zir-Lock structure®

    The interior of the SPRIG crown is perfect for a very good fixation, ensuring a long term success for the treatment.

  3. Space-Loss benefit™

    a predictable solution for the everyday challenge of space loss.

8 benefits of Zirconia Crowns:
  1. Metal-free – so zero risk of allergies 
  2. They look similar to the natural tooth
  3. Bio-compatible
  4. Decreased number of visits at the dentist and lower risk of secondary caries, unlike traditional treatments
  5. The surface of the crown is very smooth, which results in minimal dental plaque accumulation
  6. They offer gingival protection and assure normal bone development
  7. Assures enough space is maintained for the permanent tooth to erupt
  8. Increased resistance – the Zir-Lock technology assures the crown will last until the baby tooth is naturally lost
What are the alternatives for the Zirconia Crowns?
  1. Stainless steel

    Very resistant and durable, but they lack aesthetics.

  2. Metal-Acrylic crowns

    Very resistant, but they can change colour in time

  3. Composite resin crowns

    They often change colour and accumulate dental plaque.
