Baby Tooth root Canals

If a cavity is very big and has infected the nerve of the tooth, Dr. Jean may recommend we perform a baby tooth root canal. Dr. Jean only recommends this procedure if she feels keeping the tooth is very important for your child’s development. Many times the only alternative is extracting the tooth. A baby root canal removes the infection from inside of the tooth and nerve. It is a short procedure and is usually recommended to place a pediatric crown over the tooth after.
