At Camp Little Tooth, we know that your child’s baby teeth are very important and serve many functions. We prioritize keeping the natural teeth intact until they fall out naturally. Because of this, we may recommend root canal therapy for a baby tooth damaged by severe tooth decay or infection.
Below are a few of the signs that root canal therapy may be right for your child:
If it’s determined that your child does need a root canal, the infected or damaged pulp of the tooth will be removed, thoroughly cleaned, and then a dental crown will be placed over the top of the tooth to keep it clean and safe from any further damage.
To decrease the odds of your child needing root canal therapy, it’s important to practice good at-home oral hygiene. This includes helping your child to brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for two minutes, floss daily, and bring them here to our pediatric dentist in Lafayette, CO every six months for a dental cleaning and an exam. Our child’s dentist here in Lafayette, Colorado prioritizes comfort for our patients and education for their parents.
