What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy for kids is designed to preserve natural teeth. Also known as a pulpotomy, root canals are a common dental procedure performed on millions of patients in the United States each year.
During the treatment, the living tissue inside the damaged tooth is removed, including the nerves, so that decay and bacteria can be safely expelled. Then, our doctors will clean out the chamber of the tooth to gently treat it, fill it, restoring your child's healthy, pain-free smile!
When Do Children Need a Root Canal?
Root canal therapy may be recommended for children who are suffering the following symptoms:
- Swelling and tenderness of the gums
- Severe tooth pain
- Significant tooth sensitivity
- An abscess (infection) on their gums
- Sharp pain when chewing or biting
When decay has reached the pulp of the tooth, a severe infection or abscess can result. Root canal therapy may be required to save your child's tooth!
