Pediatric root canals

Remember parents; never get wrong that ONLY permanent tooth is important in our life. Whenever the dentist talks about teeth (primary or Permanent teeth):

Teeth are useful to

  1. For grinding food.
  2. For speech.
  3. For growth & development of surrounding structures.
  4. For esthetics {gud smile}.

And primary tooth will do this purpose till the permanent ones to come into oral cavity.

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged pulp (core) of a tooth is removed and the inside areas (the pulp chamber and root canals) are filled and sealed. Once the tooth is sufficiently cleaned out and as sterile as possible, the root canal is sealed off and later Capping (Crowns) should be done to prevent tooth fracture.

The decision to do RCT can be taken based on the following factors.

  1. Patient’s symptoms.
  2.  X-ray.
  3. Clinical examination.

A good digital x-ray will reveal if the cavity is involving the nerve, then RCT is recommended. In case of borderline scenario where the cavity is deep but not involving the nerve, a decision can be taken after completely removing the decay .If the nerve gets exposed then RCT is necessary. Remember the primary goal of attending to that tooth is to remove the decay from it. So it is best to take a decision on the spot after removing the decay. If RCT is needed to save the tooth then it is recommended.

We have a STANDARD PROTOCOL such as, if cavity which we start out as a filling but realize that it is deeper and we feel that RCT is needed- then the patient will be explained about the situation and the cost. If the patient agrees then we can start the RCT right away. Otherwise we can only give a temporary filling not a permanent filling.
