Wondering Why Your Child’s Dentist Advised A Root Canal Treatment For The Milk Tooth ?
Root canal treatment (RCT) is a method of saving the tooth with bacterial infection or inflammation by removing the infected pulp in the center of the tooth.
Now you maybe wondering ” milk tooth will eventually fall off then why ? ” This is because when a tooth is extracted, a gap or space is created. This can lead to the adjacent teeth drifting slowly into this space. Thus closing the gap and causing the permanent teeth to erupt in the wrong direction.
