Child Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment in children is a sensitive subject which requires specialisation. Advanced cavities in the baby teeth, which are rooted teeth such as the permanent teeth can cause some problems including aching at pain, sensitivity to cold and swelling. In such cases, root canal treatment is recommended. The tooth cavity, where the nutrition, oral structure and dental care are the decisive factors, is more common in children than in adults. Root canal treatment, which prevents premature tooth loss, is a treatment applied to permanent teeth as well as baby teeth.
Root canal treatment in children is a short-term procedure. It is important to keep the baby teeth guiding the permanent teeth as long as they do not damage the teeth yet to erupt. Root canal treatment is recommended to extent this period further. The filling material (cement) used in the treatment of canals in children is a substance specifically prepared for the baby teeth. Following the bacteria clean up, the filler is applied to ensure that baby teeth stay in the mouth for much longer.
What are the Possible Problems in the Treatment Process?
There is no complication after root canal treatment. Rarely, some redness or swelling can be seen in the area of root canal treatment performed while the permanent teeth are erupting.
