Baby Root Canal Therapy in Levittown

Preserving Your Child’s Tooth & Restoring Function

When a cavity gets deep enough to reach the tooth nerve, or pulp, the pain can become excruciating. While the pain may be managed with ibuprofen, the underlying problem must be treated to eliminate the pain and restore the tooth. At Little Smiles of Levittown, Dr. Lee offers baby root canal therapy in Levittown to restore your child’s dental health.

Please contact us at (516) 217-8910 for more information about baby root canal therapy and to schedule an appointment.

Reasons for Root Canal Therapy

When the nerve of a tooth is infected, it must be treated to restore the health and function of the tooth. This is true in children, as well as adults. If the infected nerve is not treated, the child will experience extreme pain and the infection may spread, which can result in early tooth loss.

Baby root canal therapy is intended to:

  • Prevent premature tooth loss
  • Avoid premature loss of primary molars
  • Maintain the integrity of the infected tooth
  • Prevent problems with crooked or impacted adult teeth
  • Prevent tooth placement problems caused by early tooth loss

The primary reasons that many of our patients need baby root canal therapy in Levittown include tooth decay and traumatic injury. The treatment can save a tooth that may otherwise be lost.

The Root Canal Procedure

The root canal procedure in young children is the same as for adults, but with smaller instruments to accommodate the small size of the teeth and nerves. A miniature drill is used to access the pulp. The dentist uses small instruments to remove the infected tissue from the pulp chamber. An antiseptic and antibacterial solution is used to disinfect the area. The space is then filled and the hole is sealed. When root canal therapy is performed, there is a loss of tooth structure. For this reason, pediatric crowns are often necessary to fully restore and strengthen the tooth.
