Everything you need to know about root canal in children!

October 1, 2021

You would probably have heard the term Root canal treatment’  and quite possibly even had one too but, wait a minute, ‘Root canal in children ?’  Yes, a root canal procedure done on a child is known as a ‘Pulpectomy’

What exactly is a pulpectomy?

When your Child’s tooth is infected and starts to pain, it indicates that the infection has spread to the inner portion of the tooth and requires a pulpectomy or quite simply a root canal.

What happens in a pulpectomy?

During a pulpectomy, the kid’s dentist or pediatric dentist will clean the inner portion of your Child’s tooth to clear all the infection using special instruments and seal it with an anti-bacterial material.

Is it really required?

YES! Contrary to the myth of why treat if they will eventually fall off, milk treats play important roles such as maintaining nutrition, preventing damage to permanent teeth, and maintaining space for the underlying permanent teeth to come into proper position.

Is it painful?

Not at all. A child dentist / pediatric dentist is specially trained to carry out such procedures efficiently and spends additional years of study learning behavior management techniques and specialized skills required to treat your child.

How can I avoid it?

The best way to avoid reaching such a situation is to prevent it from arising in the first place! Ensure your child is taken to a Paedodontist or a kids dentist every 6 months to ensure that cavities are detected early and addressed before causing more damage.

Kids can be notorious when it comes to taking care of their teeth. To the point where it almost impossible to get some of them to brush even once a day let alone twice. Most children don’t see their family dentist until they are well over 2 years old, far later than is recommended by both dental and medical professionals.  Here are a few things you ought to know about taking care of your child’s teeth the best. 

Importance of primary teeth

Among children who have never visited the dentist or who have not seen a dentist in the last 12 months, the most frequently mentioned reason by their parents was that “the child is too young”. Sometimes parents fail to understand the importance of losing child teeth naturally. 

It is very important to keep a child’s teeth in place until they are lost naturally. The primary teeth are important for many reasons including:

  • Proper and efficient chewing..
  • Good speech development.
  • Helping save space for permanent teeth.
  • Promoting a healthy smile that helps children feel good about the way they look.

After reading positive reviews, I wanted to give it a try, I must say I had a very good experience. I had a filling done with another dentist for my front tooth, it was not matching my tooth colour.When smiling people used to tell me I have lipstick on my teeth and I had to tell them that it’s a filling and not lipstick. Dr. Schuyler had replaced the filling which is matching my teeth colour. He is very informative and explains everything in details which is easy for the patient to understand. Very happy with their service. In future will be getting my implants done with him. Highly recommended.

Cool Dentist period!!I am visiting this clinic from past 3 months, got the best treatment possible. I had a front chipped tooth which Dr Schuyler fixed and made it look as it was naturally ,which boosted my confidence in social and professional life. I was treated by Dr Anthea also she was the sweetest doctor ever taking care of her patients in the most professional way. The staff is too good with the patients , giving follow-up calls and reminders in a very polite and gentle way.Overall one of the best Dentist clinic. Worth it.

With the pandemic in 2019, I never consulted a dentist until I moved back to Goa, India, last month (June 2022).As I was googling and looking for a good dentist in Margao, I came across - Smile Craft. Their website was nice and fancy among all the other dental clinics, but I wasn't sure if they were the best.Yet, I thought I would give them a shot. My primary concern was my molar which went wrong after I did a root canal years back. So I got my appointment booked and was consulted by Dr. Schuyler.The first thing I mentioned to him was let's extract the molar instead of fixing it, as I had no hope of improving it. However, Dr. Schuyler wasn't ready to extract it and believed it still could be fixed. Dr. Schuyler and their team always provide the best advice to get that beautiful smile crafted :)Well, If it could be all fixed - I was all up for it. After a couple of visits, my teeth are as good as they could be. Their team uses A1 quality dental filling; you can't even notice you have a filling. It matches your tooth color, unlike some dentists using cheap quality, which feels like POP stuck on your teeth.Also, they're very cautious while completing their dental procedure with no pain at all. I nearly dozed off once.I think the Smile Craft team is one of the best out there. I recommend it to everyone looking to get their smile crafted by the best team - SMILE CRAFT is the place!!

Dr Schuyler is very friendly and truly a spectacular dentist. The quality of service I received during my treatment is simply outstanding. I have done 1 filling, and one tooth implant ,which was done with gentle care and no pain, during the implant Dr explain everything to me what he was doing which I think is very professional.Overall my experience in the surgery was amazing. I would like to say special thanks to Dr Schuyler ,and everyone who works at Smile Craft ,you all doing a great job.Highly recommend

Dr Schuyler is one of the best dentists in Goa! Had visited him for a couple of tooth colored fillings and was very impressed. His work stands out, I cannot even tell that my tooth has a filling! It looks so natural! The clinic is clean and the staff is very polite and professional. Yes, it did take me time to get an appointment, but now I realize why. Certainly recommend Smile Craft to anyone looking at getting quality dental treatment done.
