Would you have a 5 year old go through a root canal?
My daughter just took her 5 year old son to his first dentist visit, because one of his baby teeth is chipped (a molar). The dentist said he doesn’t want to pull the tooth, because it may cause the teeth to crowd. He also said the boy will need braces anyway.
The dentist wants to do a root canal, followed by having a cap put on the tooth.
This is a baby tooth! Has anyone ever heard of such a thing?
