Root Canal Treatment

Toothaches, problems with chewing, tooth sensitivity, and gum inflammation may signal damage to the tooth's nerve and potential infection. Root canal treatment offers a valuable solution in these situations. 

This dental procedure aims to preserve a child's tooth by removing infected or damaged pulp, the soft tissue within the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. By removing the infected tissue, the dentist can stop the spread of infection, alleviate pain, and save the tooth.
