If your child is experiencing severe pain in their teeth, they may require an endodontic procedure. The most common of these procedures is a root canal treatment.

We complete our endodontic therapy procedures the right way, so your child’s chances of needing a follow-up treatment are much lower. If your child is in pain and you think they may need a root canal, call us or stop by our clinic to schedule a professional root canal treatment today.

Common Indicators That a Root Canal Treatment Is Necessary

A couple of different symptoms indicate a possible need for a root canal. If your child feels severe pain while chewing, is sensitive to hot or cold food, or has swelling or tenderness in their gums or you notice their teeth becoming darker, it could be a sign that they need a root canal treatment. Talk to our pediatric dentists immediately if you notice that your child is experiencing any of these symptoms.

Root Canal Procedure

Root canals are the most common endodontic procedure and are relatively straightforward. The swelling and pain in the teeth or gums often indicate an infection of the nerve tissue, or pulp, in the teeth. Infection can occur due to trauma, tooth decay or tooth cracks.

Root canals aim to remove the infected tooth pulp. First, our pediatric dentists will use local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free procedure. Once the anesthetic takes effect, we will remove the pulp in your child’s infected tooth.

Then, our pediatric dentists and team cleans the root canal system, seals it back up with a rubber-like seal and covers the tooth with a filling or crown.

The number of visits necessary to complete your child’s treatment will vary depending on the severity of their pulp infection, but we generally can complete the root canal in one visit. Root canals are very successful operations and result in better chewing, a more natural tooth appearance and improved oral hygiene.
