My son has cavities in 4 of his front teeth they are his baby teeth and he's going to be 4yrs old this year, and I have to make the choice of whether to have them crowned or extracted, I'm not sure which choice to make, the dentist obviously is promoting having his teeth crowned as it'll make more money for him. The extractions are covered by my health insurance where as with the crowns it's not fully covered and i'll be paying $250 to have the work done. Which choice is better? Should I get the crowns on teeth that are going to fall out soonish anyways? or just have the teeth extracted? All the work is going to be done while my son is put to sleep for a while.
