Root canal Treatment for children

  • Primary teeth are more susceptible to decay because they have a thin layer of enamel.

  • You should preserve your baby primary teeth to prevent crowding in the future, and to allow your baby eat and speak well.

  • Root canal treatment is a safe and simple procedure.
  • Root canal treatment is removing the infected pulp and the bacteria from inside the pulp chamber, after cleaning and shaping the canals using tiny files the tooth is filled with the filling material ( pulpectomy).
  • The tooth will become more fragile so we should protect the tooth with crown.
  • Follow up is very important for early investigation of any decay.
