Nothing is more exciting than watching each baby tooth erupt from your child’s gums. Although they are only in place for a few years, each tooth is crucial to oral health and development. They also act as placeholders for the adult teeth to ensure they come in straight. Unfortunately, tooth decay is the biggest threat to young smiles. Cavities are easily treatable while they are still small, but severe decay can put them at risk of losing a tooth too soon. Root canals for kids (pulpectomy) can save their teeth to ensure nothing prevents them from achieving their best smiles.
