If your child plays a contact sport and their tooth gets cracked, or if they break or damage a tooth while playing or because of a slip and fall, an endodontist is the best choice. Endodontists can help restore and treat damaged teeth, and have more experience doing so compared to a regular dentist.
A painful and prolonged toothache could indicate a tooth infection, which should be treated by an experienced endodontist using a pulpotomy (baby root canal).
If your child’s tooth is very sensitive when eating hot or cold foods, or when consuming very sugary foods or drinks, they may have a deep cavity or an infected tooth, and it’s best to see an endodontist for treatment.
Pediatric dentists may sometimes refer patients to endodontists for complex root canals and other such procedures. If your child’s pediatric dentist thinks it’s a good idea to refer you to a specialist, contact ONE ENDO right away.
Tooth decay is the most common preventable chronic childhood disease, and if left untreated, it can lead to an infection that requires pediatric endodontic care. Make sure your child maintains proper oral hygiene to avoid cavities and tooth infections in both their baby and adult teeth.
