Does My Child Need a Root Canal?

Parents are often surprised to learn that the root canal procedure is not just for adults. Your child’s baby tooth may require a root canal – referred to as a pulpotomy – if decay to the tooth can’t be resolved by a regular dental filling. Our board-certified pediatric dentist offers high-quality care for pediatric pulpotomy in Succasunna, NJ.

Why Save a Baby Tooth?

You may wonder why your child’s damaged baby tooth isn’t simply extracted, since it is not a permanent tooth and will fall out anyway. However, baby teeth serve an important role and help guide the growth and development of permanent teeth and should be saved whenever possible.

Specialty Care for Your Child’s Pulpotomy in Succasunna, NJ

Our pediatric specialist, Dr. Julia Springfield Polomski, has received advanced dental training in both the pulpotomy procedure and child behavior management to effectively manage and treat your child’s infected tooth. Once the infected pulp has been removed, the tooth may also need a filling or a crown to support the weakened tooth structure. Regardless, your child will leave our office feeling much better. In addition, parents can rest assured that their child received the high-quality, compassionate care necessary to set the foundation for a lifelong healthy smile.
