In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist talks about what you can do, and what treatments we offer, to help prevent cavities in little smiles.
Seeing your child in pain can break your heart! If your little one complains of a toothache, call your dentist right away. We can take an X-ray of the problem tooth to determine if the pain is a sign of a dangerous infection. Without treatment, bacterial deposits can break away from your child’s inner tooth chamber and spread throughout their bloodstream. By performing endodontic therapy, we can access the chamber, clear all decaying material, and restore their smile. Because this procedure permanently alters the surface of their tooth, we may place a crown to restore the strength of their bite as well. A pulpotomy provides an alternative to root canal treatment that leaves the healthy portion of the pulp in tact. By cleaning out all infected material, your child’s inflammatory response subsides, lessening pressure on sensitive dental nerves.
At your Dallas, TX, pediatric dental office, we are standing by to help your little one in their time of need. Tooth infections should be seen right away to prevent bacteria from entering their bloodstream. By making an emergency visit, we can determine the nature of their pain and help get it under control.
