Fixed prosthetic treatment in children is indicated in cases with caries and his complications, genetic aetiology, etc. when extensively destructed tooth structures cannot be completely restored with the methods of conservative dentistry. In these cases, prosthetic treatment is planned and performed following certain requirements, with respect to age and the occurring growth changes.
The aim of this study is to analyse and summarize the scientific data on the use of fixed prosthetic treatments in children.
Materials and methods: An online keyword database search was performed in PubMed, Google, Lilac, Yandex, eLibrary.rufrom December 2017 to February 2018.
Results: Modern scientific studies have documented high functional and aesthetic results in cases of prosthetic treatments on implants, mini-implants in children aged 3 to 17 with the presence of partial or total edentulism. Practice proven method for restoring severely injured primary teeth is the different types of performed stainless steel crowns (conventional, pre-veneered, open-face stainless steel crowns) and aesthetic performed crowns (polycarbonate, zirconium crowns).
Conclusion: The recovering of the masticatory and speech function and normal appearance is of particular importance for the growth of the jaws and facial bones, the general physical development, the psyho-emotional state and the social adaptation of the children.

Keywords: paediatric prosthetic treatments, implants, primary crowns,
