The words “pediatric root canal” can send you into a panic if you let it. But, you and your child have no need to be scared or concerned. You just need the right dentist to educate you and make you aware of some pretty significant signs. Within a routine dental visit, which the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends your child get twice a year, your dentist may recommend a root canal for your child. You should know that Dr. Simon Beylin is the best when it comes to kids root canals, Lowell residents!
Kids Root Canals Lowell Residents Can Trust
Dr. Simon Beylin, our root canal specialist, completed his specialty training in endodontics at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Working exhaustively with patients at Children’s Hospital of Boston, he had the distinct honor of being one of the very select few endodontists that provided care for pediatric patients.
When we say he is the best, we mean it! His care, compassion, and expertise are unparalleled. Dr. Simon loves working with kids and is very experienced in dealing with the complexities of root canals on young, permanent teeth.
Most commonly, young children need root canals on adult teeth due to cavities, teeth that grew in weak, or trauma. If you get to the root problems at an early age, you can potentially save your child the suffering caused by more severe issues in the future. That’s why it’s important to know the telltale signs. It’s time to have a serious talk with your child’s dentist if any of the following are present in:
- A chipped or damaged tooth with an exposed nerve
- Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold food or drinks
- Toothaches or sharp pain in teeth
The procedure and recovery may seem a bit daunting, but we can’t stress enough just how important it is to give immediate attention to any potential tooth issues. When the procedure is over, and the minor post-procedure discomfort subsides, the American Association of Endodontists agrees that a children’s root canal, along with the proper filling or crown to protect the treated tooth, will undeniably prove its benefits quickly after the discomfort subsides.
If you feel like your child is experiencing anything out of the ordinary, such as immense pain or trouble chewing, it’s definitely time to inquire about kids root canals Lowell residents can trust.
