Here at Arlington Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to provide pediatric dental crowns using the advanced Hall technique. This noninvasive treatment for decayed baby teeth helps manage decay so that your child can continue to grow and develop without having teeth removed prematurely. To learn more about Hall crowns in Arlington, Virginia, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Arpi Patel Khare or Dr. Carlos Cruz-Chu, call us today at 703-671-5437.
The Hall technique is a noninvasive and biologically oriented strategy for managing dental decay in children. It is specifically used to treat decayed baby molars to prevent extraction and avoid the need for injections, drilling or other invasive treatment options. This makes Hall crowns not only easier to provide but also significantly more comfortable for children to receive.
If we find that your child’s back baby teeth have significant decay, we may recommend that they receive a Hall crown until the tooth is ready to fall out on its own and be replaced by a permanent tooth. A Hall crown is made of stainless steel and will be placed over the tooth to protect it and prevent the decay from spreading. After the crown is placed, your child’s smile will continue to grow and develop normally.
If you have any questions about Hall crowns or would like to schedule an appointment with our experienced pediatric dentists, call our office today and speak with a member of our team.
