Root Canal Treatment of Milk Tooth

 

After root canal treatment will the milk tooth will fall on its own?

 

Yes, after root canal treatment the tooth is almost like a natural tooth. It will fall on its own.

 

After root canal treatment is follow up necessary?

 

Yes, after root canal treatment the tooth has to be monitored atleast once in every six months.

 

Is there any way to prevent this?

 

Yes, and the only way is to detect tooth decay early and treat it. If we detect tooth decay early we can save the tooth by a normal filling. It is better not to wait until pain develops, because once pain develops then preserving the tooth needs extensive treatment like root canal treatment. Hence it is always better to start the FIRST DENTAL VISIT when the first milk tooth erupts into the mouth (between 8-12 months of age). If the first dental visit has taken place at this stage one can completely prevent tooth decay if the parents strictly follow the pediatric dentists instructions.
