Pedo crowns are simply dental crowns for children. Tooth decay is one of the most common childhood diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, tooth decay is five times as common as asthma and seven times as common as hay fever. The CDC says 42% of children ages 2 to 11 have had cavities in baby teeth. At least 4 Million preschoolers suffer from tooth decay. Tooth decay can cause your child pain and infection, and can even affect your child’s growth. Untreated or improperly treated, tooth decay can also have serious consequences for your child’s jaw development and speech. Given the horrible effects of this disease, the importance of early detection, treatment and choosing the right pedo crowns cannot be overstated.
