At Hero Pediatric Dentistry, we’re trained specifically to work with kids. We love creating a gentle, friendly atmosphere for every child under our care. If your child has severe tooth pain, schedule them for an evaluation to see if they need a pediatric root canal in Herndon.

Root Canals Overview

Once tooth decay has progressed beyond a cavity into the nerve tissue, a root canal is necessary to remove infected tissue. Even though it may be most commonly performed on adult teeth, baby teeth may also require root canals to keep them healthy until they fall out on their own. If a tooth has deteriorated so much that it’s beyond saving, we perform an extraction to keep infection from spreading to the surrounding tissue.

How Root Canals Work

During a root canal, the dentist removes the decayed tissue and cleans the inside of the tooth. Once finished, the dentist places a crown over the tooth for protection.

What to Expect

Your dentist will thoroughly numb the treatment area so your child doesn’t feel any pain during the procedure. After the procedure, the treated area might be sore for a few days, and we can provide painkillers for any discomfort. We also have sedation options for children with anxiety or special needs.
