Root Canal Therapy for Children
Primary teeth are important. It is due to this reason; it is necessary to keep it intact, rather than extracting at a premature age. This is when the root canal therapy can be immensely useful. It can help save the baby tooth from extensive decay.
When Does A Child Need Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy is recommended if a child feels pain in the tooth, is sensitive to temperature, or is having a chipped or cracked tooth with an already exposed nerve. In all these cases, the nerve is damaged to such an extent that it becomes impossible to treat by means of medication or simple surface repair. Hence, we remove the infected nerve and place a crown over it. In this way, we make sure the tooth stays strong and fit until the permanent teeth come out.

Our Parent Reviews
Dominick was back at Joyful Smiles Pediatric Dentistry of Bradley this morning! I really cannot say enough about how amazing they are. The hygienist meet with me first thing and already knew about his cyclic vomiting and asked my input about triggers. The doctor spoke with me regarding the oral surgeon and will continue to personally follow up. They are extremely professional but more than that they really care. First complete teeth cleaning and fluoride treatment in seven years and definitely no trauma!!! Very impressive!!!!
