While dental procedures such as fillings and root canals are commonly associated with adult patients, many children require dental treatment from a young age. Dr. Justin Kolnick is an expert in pediatric dentistry in Westchester, NY and performs the most advanced procedures to treat young patients. If your child requires pediatric endodontic care, you may be anxious if you are not sure what to expect. Here is some important information about root canal therapy for children.

 

What Situations Require Pediatric Endodontics?

 

Root canal therapy for children is more common that many people think. Treatments can help patients with developmental anomalies such as malformed teeth or incorrect tooth placement, as well as children with cavities or trauma from an accident. Dr. Kolnick will examine your child and create a treatment plan to address each issue effectively.

 

What Pain Management Options Are Available?

 

We understand that dental work can be uncomfortable and frightening, especially for young children. Dr. Kolnick uses a variety of pain management techniques such as laughing gas and local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. If necessary, our office works with Board Certified Anesthesiologists to provide sedation or general anesthesia.

 

What Are the Advantages of Choosing a Pediatric Dental Specialist?

 

Pediatric dentistry is a specialized field that requires practitioners who are highly trained and experienced. Dr. Kolnick has years of experience taking care of young patients and helping parents understand all the details of each procedure. No matter what dental issue your child is facing, it is extremely important to get treatment as soon as possible to prevent further problems.
