At Metropolitan Endodontics, we’re happy and welcome treating children as well as adults. We are very patient, kid-friendly and ensure our younger patients are comfortable during their treatment Since endodontists are typically associated with adults, many parents are surprised to learn that their child could benefit just as much from receiving specialized treatment. To learn more about how our team at Metropolitan Endodontics can help ease your child’s discomfort and keep their oral health on the right track, we welcome you to keep reading below.
Just like adults, it’s possible for a child to develop a need for a root canal treatment from tooth damage or an untreated cavity. Not only can it cause them pain and discomfort, but it can also cause change in tooth development affecting them. If your child is complaining of sensitivity, a toothache, or pain while eating, don’t hesitate to bring them in for an examination so we can ensure that they get the treatment they need.
Dr. Sara Shambayati is an endodontist, which means that she has undergone an additional three years of advanced education after dental school to become an expert on treating dental pulp and managing oral diseases and infections. This allows her to provide your child with the highest quality of endodontic treatment and ensure they receive long-lasting relief from their pain and get their oral health back on the right track.
