ROOT CANAL IN CHILDREN
Saving a baby tooth may be just as important as saving a fully developed adult tooth.The untimely loss of baby teeth can interfere with chewing, speech development and most importantly the alignment of newly developing permanent teeth.
Here’s why: Each baby tooth holds the space open for the permanent tooth that will emerge behind it since all teeth do not fall out at the same time.After removing a baby tooth a gap is formed.The remaining teeth shift position and fill this gap.Thus the space needed for the eruption of permanent tooth is reduced affect their ultimate alignment.
