ORAL REHABILITATION : Stainless steel crown prep on a primary molar

For many years stainless steel crowns have been a significant part of the restorative armamentarium in paediatric dentistry. 

By definition they are prefabricated crown forms that are adapted to individual teeth and cemented with a biocompatible luting agent.


If some logical sequences of steps in tooth preparation and crown adaptation are followed it is a relatively simple restorative treatment modality to employ. 

The principal indications for their use is in those primary and permanent teeth that are either hypocalcified or that have multiple and extensive carious lesions and whose pulps have been removed.
