At Platinum Endodontics, we treat permanent teeth on kids of all ages.
Children need root canal treatment for the same reasons as adults, saving a tooth. Protecting them from early loss can help prevent a “bad bite” that later on would 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.
If your child was recommended for root canal treatment, don’t be anxious!
Dr. Langer has years of experience treating many children in a safe, and comfortable manner. We can also offer Nitrous Oxide (sweet air) to help reduce anxiety. Being a parent himself, Dr. Paul relates well with children, and is sympathetic to their pain and fears. He will treat your child like one of his own.
