do 7 year olds get root canals?
my 7 year old has a bad molar the dentise wants to do a root canal i has never heard of that for a child. i would like to hear your opinion and other options thanks everyone

no age limit for root canal treatment. Find out if it is a permanent tooth or milk tooth. If it is a milk tooth, a root canal treatment is done so that it can wait for the permanent teeth to push it out when it erupts out into the mouth. If it is removed a space maintainer has to be made so that the other tooth does not take its place that the one that is supposed to come in.

It is probably a baby tooth. The problem is that the rest of the teeth will move and try to fill the gap. This will create problems for the permanent teeth when they try to come in. Ask the dentist if he can put a spacer in the maintain the position instead of the root canal. You could also seek a second opinion. If he and/or the second opinion says it should be done then you probably should go ahead with it. Ask to make sure that it is a baby tooth. If it is not you have no choice but to do the root canal.

At age 7 the permanent first molars should be out. If the tooth has a deep carious lession and hurting, he/she, needs the root canal. It is important to save that tooth as it is the key to a good occlusion of the rest of the teeth.

I've never heard of it for someone that young but if the root is being damaged by a cavity then a root canal is usually called for. If it is a baby tooth it keeps the damage from affecting the incoming adult tooth. IIf you're really unsure of the dentist's diagnosis see another for a second opinion. I just did that with my 8 year old since I took him to two different clinics and they couldn't agree on how many and where his cavities were.

Thats nothing but a dentist looking for money. Its a baby tooth; have it pulled instead. Once the new teeth come in, make sure your child takes care of them so that it doesn't happen again.

Your dentist wouldn't do it if he didn't think it was safe. His career is at stake. The worst that can happen is infection of some sort ... I don't see it being much different than an adult getting a root canal, though.

not me
if it is the permanent tooth then you got no other option. if its the baby tooth then they just pull it out

I had a root canal when I was younger I think around that age maybe younger.
