Pediatric Root Canal Treatment
If your child was recommended for root canal treatment, don’t be anxious! At Platinum Endodontics we treat kids all of all ages.
Children sometimes need root canal treatment, for the same similar reason as adults, to save their teeth. Baby teeth are important guides to the permanent teeth that are already forming beneath your children’s gums. Therefore, saving them from premature loss can help prevent a “bad-bite” that would later on require orthodontic treatment.
Dental trauma most frequently occurs in children or teens in whom the teeth have not yet fully developed. When treating traumatized teeth, the timeliness of care is key to saving the tooth. Children may also need root canal treatment at some point in their youth due to untreated cavities.
Preserving tooth structure is our goal and our minimally invasive approach helps keep your child’s teeth stronger for longer.
