Root Canal Therapy for Children

Primary teeth are important and it is best that these teeth be kept intact instead of being prematurely extracted. It is for this reason that root canal therapy for children is a potential option for saving a baby tooth that is affected by extensive decay.

When Does A Child Need Root Canal Therapy?

This treatment is often indicated if your child feels pain in a tooth, is sensitive to different temperatures, or if the tooth is chipped or cracked with the nerve already exposed. When this happens, the nerve becomes damaged beyond simple medication or surface repair. As a result, the infected nerve is removed and a crown is placed on the tooth, allowing it to be strong enough so the tooth can remain in the child’s mouth until the permanent tooth erupts.
