Saving Riverton's Young Teeth With Root Canal Treatment
We use root canal treatment as a way of saving a tooth that is infected with a bacterial infection by removing the pulp in the center of the tooth. It may seem silly to save a baby tooth because they are just going to fall out anyway but saving a baby tooth is incredibly important.
If a baby tooth is missing it can cause issues with chewing, speech development, and tooth alignment. But by preserving it you can help give your child the best chance at long term health.
Help your child maintain a happy smile and schedule your appointment today!
What is a Root Canal?
Root Canal treatment is used to remove the diseased and infected pulp from your child’s tooth. The pulp is the tissue and blood vessels that fill the tooth roots which is why when it is infected it can be extremely painful until treatment is provided. The root keeps the tooth secure in the gum and jawbone and keeps your child’s smile at its best.
How Can I Help My Child Prepare for
Root Canal Treatment?
- Follow the instructions from your dentist
- Receive x-rays to get a better image of what is happening in the tooth root
- Consult with the doctor about dental sedation. Some children are okay with just a local anesthetic but if you have a very active child it may be helpful to consider more anesthetic.
- Talk to your kid about what is going to happen at the appointment so they feel prepared
