Root Canal Treatment For Children in Kothrud

Many times, parents ask us, is there root canal treatment for children as well?
The answer is, we are going to talk in brief about root canal treatment in children.
Let’s look at the tooth anatomy in deciduous teeth ( kids teeth ). The tooth consists of two parts

  1. Crown ( this part of the tooth that we see in the mouth.)
  2. Root ( this part of the tooth which is embedded in the bone.)

The crown consists of three layers of Enamel, the inner part is Dentine, and the innermost part contains pulp. Pulp tissue is made up of blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue.
In deciduous teeth, the thickness of enamel and dentine is less compared to adult teeth as the overall size and shape of deciduous teeth is small. When the decay starts, it quickly involves enamel and dentine, and in no time, it reaches the pulp. Once the pulp is involved, the kid complains of pain in the tooth, and in many instances, there is slight swelling associated with the tooth.
In such conditions, parents visit the nearest dentist with their kids. If you read more about Root Canal Treatment Benefits. On examination, we usually advise the treatment of a root canal to save the tooth. Root Canal Treatment for Children Kothrud

Root Canal Treatment Procedure

Root canal treatment in children is the same as root canal treatment in adult teeth.

Under proper anesthesia, the decayed tooth is isolated with a rubber dam.

Slow speed drill is used to remove the decayed part of the tooth. the infected pulp is exposed and root canals are located. With different file systems, the root canals are cleaned and shaped to receive the biocompatible inert material. With different solutions, the canals are irrigated to achieve complete disinfection within the canal. And canals are filled with zinc oxide eugenol cement. With developed techniques and equipment we usually complete the root canal treatment in a single visit.

Once root canal treatment is completed, the tooth is covered with prefabricated crowns specially meant for deciduous teeth. You must follow some tips for root canal recovery.

What is the Difference Between root canal treatment in adults and children

  1. Adult/ permanent teeth are bigger compared to children / Deciduous teeth
  2. The material used to fill the canal is different in Permanent teeth than in Deciduous teeth
  3. Crowns are prefabricated for deciduous teeth and custom-made for permanent teeth.
