How Does Stainless Steel Crowns Strengthen The Molars?

The successful management of dental caries is a long-standing issue in the pediatric population. It comprises a significant number of challenges such as behaviour management, the requirement for definitive treatment before tooth exfoliation, and access to care.

In the US, dental caries can be regarded as one of the most prevalent unmet health requirements where children are concerned. According to estimates, 20% of the American kids between 2 and 5 years of age have dental caries that has been left untreated. Moreover, the rate of untreated dental caries has shown no improvement over a period of 2 decades. It is especially important to carry out adequate treatment in regard to carious primary molars so that oral infections can be avoided. In the same vein, it is also crucial as the main role of primary molars is in the proper mastication as well as the maintenance of proper space amidst the permanent premolars.

Stainless Steel Crowns are also sometimes called preformed metal crowns. These dental crowns have demonstrated a lot of clinical success. Moreover, they are regarded as a favourable restoration item for two-surface as well as larger carious lesions in regards to primary molars. Generally, after traditional preparation is the SSC which consists of a number of things such as the administration of local anaesthetic and the occlusal as well as distal surfaces. It also comprises the proper removal of the tooth structure and the complete caries removal prior to the SSC being luted with the cement of glass ionomer.      

It is also pertinent to mention here that even though it is less technique sensitive as compared to placing intracoronal restorations, the SSC placement through traditional tooth preparation still does require administering local anaesthetic as well as a coronal reduction (multi-surface). This, in turn, potentially creates issues in the management of the pediatric patient’s behaviour.

Advantages Of Stainless Steel Crowns Over Other Crowns

In the present times, several crown materials exist that are available for us besides stainless steel, of course. Dentists usually offer a whole gamut of crowns that are made from a variety of materials such as zirconium oxide and resin besides the classic stainless steel crowns. Even though there are lots of new choices available today, the classic is still largely preferred by most.

Some advantages of stainless steel crowns include:

  1. According to research, heavily damaged teeth keep their shape when they are covered with a cap made of steel.
  2. The majority of the crown types must be attached to the tooth without bleeding or moisture getting in the way. In the case of stainless steel crowns, that is not a problem as they are not too sensitive when it comes to these factors. So, dentists can trim as well as contour steel caps easily for the perfect fit.
  3. Stainless steel crowns go a long way to strengthening the molars. Unfortunately, that cannot be said for the other types of dental crowns.
  4. Most of all, these crowns are super affordable as compared to the other types.
