Why use a Root Canal Treatment for a Child?
Quite often there is fear or stigma when it comes to the topic of root canal treatments. The older we get, the more we understand about dental procedures and sometimes the ‘hear say’ from others about the pain involved influences our thoughts. Many myths about root canals continue to spread, but the truth is that root canal treatments are often mild and gentle.
Every year millions of children’s teeth are saved thanks to the advanced technology of root canals. A root canal is a treatment to repair and protect a severely infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it.
Why do children need root canals?
You might be wondering why your child needs a root canal? Won’t their adult teeth just grow in any way? Although a child may eventually lose their baby teeth, depending on the age they can experience pain and discomfort without the treatment. The child’s tooth may be damaged to the point where the root pulp may be exposed, and this can be very painful. By treating this with a root canal procedure, you can provide your child with a solution to the pain and discomfort.
For these reasons, many parents decide that a root canal is the best option for their child. Baby teeth are an essential component of your child’s developing mouth.
