When tooth decay penetrates deeply enough, it can infect the sensitive soft tissue inside the tooth. This can be extremely painful for children, causing throbbing pain in the tooth or jaw. Baby root canal treatment will not only remove the infection instantly, but save the tooth from the need for extraction too.
Our dedicated root canal dentist offers an extremely high level of skill, care and experience and uses the most advanced dental microscope for highly accurate diagnosis and treatment. A baby root canal is very different from the adult version – it only takes a few minutes to complete, and can be done in a single appointment. Depending on the extent of decay, there are numerous treatment options your dentist will consider, from removing the decay and simply capping the tooth to protect it, to removing all the infected pulp and sealing it, before fixing a children’s crown. We’ll talk you through the options and provide a clear and concise treatment plan.
