Understanding the root canal treatment for your child

Often parents come to me with a lot of anxiety because their child would have been advised a root canal treatment for his or her milk tooth. This anxiety precipitates to the question that why does the milk tooth need a RCT (root canal treatment) when it is going to fall out anyway. To answer this question we must first understand the anatomy or make up of our teeth.

Thank you Doctor, My daugther is 3 years and we need to get a root canal done for a tooth that has gone non-vital. She has a massive swelling and is been put on antibiotics. Now I have a question, she is asthmatic. What precautions should I make sure that the doctor takes. FYI - she had a very bad asthma attack 20 days back and was in the PICU for two days. Can you please guide me.

thank you for the information. I have had a few root canals myself and always wishing that my child would not have to go through agony. Although in own experience, the expertise of the doctor really makes a difference in the whole experience. Its good to know what really goes on in an RCT.
