Nearly all children get cavities. They form because of buildup plaque – harmful bacteria that eats away at the tooth enamel. Sometimes, the damage is more severe than a cavity. The interior of the tooth gets infected or is damaged. When this happens, a root canal is necessary. Even if it’s your child’s baby tooth, it’s still important to schedule a checkup to determine a plan of action. A root canal is needed to save the tooth and hold the position for a permanent tooth. Otherwise, shifting and teeth misalignment can occur. Schedule an appointment with Villalon Callis Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics for kid’s root canal treatment in Sugar Land, TX.
How Root Canal Surgery Can Help
Using advanced dental procedures, our endodontists completely numb the area using effective anesthetics. We then gently and thoroughly remove the inflamed nerve and infected pulp from within the tooth. After doing so, we fill the space with a durable material to restore the strength of the root. Finally, we place a crown or filling over the tooth to protect the entire structure. Schedule an appointment if your child is experiencing any of the following:
Painful & Persistent Toothaches
Pain While Chewing
Pain That Radiates Within the Mouth or Head
Sustained Sensitivity to Heat or Cold
Swelling Gums & Tenderness
