Why Should Your Child Get Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy becomes necessary when the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected or damaged. This can happen due to severe tooth decay, trauma, or deep cavities. By undergoing root canal therapy, your child can prevent pain, abscesses, and further damage to their oral health. Our skilled dentists will save the tooth by removing the infected pulp, cleaning the area, and sealing it to prevent reinfection.

The Root Canal Therapy Treatment Process

Diagnosis and Evaluation

Our dentists will examine your child's tooth and use diagnostic tools to assess the extent of infection or damage.

Pulp Removal and Cleaning

Our skilled dentists will gently remove the infected pulp, clean the root canals, and disinfect the area to eliminate bacteria. We prioritize your child's comfort and may use local anesthesia and sedation techniques to ensure a pain-free procedure.

Filling, Sealing, and Restoring

After thorough cleaning, we will fill the root canals with a special dental material and seal the tooth to prevent reinfection. Depending on the extent of treatment, we may recommend a dental crown or filling to restore the tooth's strength and appearance.
