Root canal treatment
Rescue operation for a tooth
Even milk teeth can become diseased and painful. If this is the case with your child, do not hesitate to attend our practice. We can help you quickly and professionally.
Root canal treatments are only for grown-ups? No. Incidentally, this occurs more frequently with milk teeth than permanent teeth, as the hard dental structure is thinner in milk teeth. This means it is easier for bacteria to reach the inside of the tooth, where they can inflame tissue and nerves.
This is when the specialist dental field of endodontics comes into play. The word can be translated as “tooth interior” and it deals with diseased dental nerves and roots. This means that in a painful and inflamed milk tooth, we must fight the inflammation in order to eliminate the pain. To do this, we carry out a root canal treatment. We remove the inflamed tissue and fight the pathogenic bacteria effectively in order to save the tooth as far as possible.
