“Hall Crowns” can be a great treatment option for a young, uncooperative child with tooth decay. This is a case where two stainless steel crowns (“Hall Crowns”) were used to treat severely decayed (but not infected!) baby molars. No general anesthesia. No sedation. No drilling involved. This patient came in initially for a second opinion after a dental surgery under general anesthesia had been recommended.
Prior to the placement of the crowns, SDF (Silver Diamine Fluoride) treatment was completed to both the molars and the upper front teeth to stop the decay from progressing. The xray is from the initial consultation day. The mouth picture is from the follow up visit, three months after the placement of the hall crowns.
If parents choose to cover the black SDF stains on the front teeth, SMART strip crowns can be used where the front teeth would be covered with glass ionomer (GI) tooth colored crowns.
Call us at (201) 763-6030 if you would like to learn more about minimally invasive dental procedures for your children.
Dr. Yayun Wang will be joining Dear Tooth Fairy this summer to be the tooth fairy for the big people! :) A lot of our parents asked "Can we come here too and watch the TV on the ceiling!?” So we are answering. Please meet Dr. Wang. She is a mother of an adorable boy, her family also lives in Jersey City. Oh, did we mention that she speaks fluent Chinese (Mandarin)? Now our staff members speak English, Spanish, Korean and Chinese. Click here for her bio.

In addition to traditional restorative dental treatment (fillings and stainless steel crowns), at Dear Tooth Fairy we offer non-invasive dental treatment that involves “NO DRILLING” techniques, including:
(1) SDF (Silver Diamine Fluoride).and SMART
A 38 percent SDF solution is used for the arrest of cavitated caries lesions in primary teeth, i.e., to stop the decay in baby teeth. This technique is sometimes combined with a GI (glass ionomer) filling and called a “SMART” filling.
Tooth friendly filling by infiltration – no drilling needed. In addition, this treatment optically blends and makes the “white spots” fade away on the front teeth.
(3) Hall crowns
Stainless steel crowns are placed without local anesthesia and drilling. This treatment is not for everyone but when appropriate, it provides a very effective quick and pain-free dental treatment without the need for more extensive behavior management modalities such as laughing gas anxiolysis and IV sedation.
(4) LSTR (Lesion Sterilization and Tissue Repair)
Instead of extracting an infected tooth, a pulpotomy (“baby root canal”) can be completed with an antibiotic medicament. Again, in order for this to be successful there are certain conditions that must be met.
