We Provide Root Canals and Extractions for Kids in Tulsa, OK
When your child has a severely damaged tooth, a root canal is the best way to help boost their oral health, while saving their natural tooth structure. In the event that your child needs to have a tooth extracted to make room for well-aligned permanent teeth, we gently remove baby teeth. At Kids’ Dental, we make sure that our Tulsa, OK children’s root canals and teeth extractions are done comfortably and safely, so that your child can have a smile that is free of dental health problems.
Getting a Pediatric Root Canal
Dr. Costello, owner and primary dentist at Kid’s Dental, performs your child’s root canal right at his dental office – there’s no need to visit an outside specialist for treatment. We only perform root canals on permanent teeth that are damaged or infected, and we can even use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help your child feel at-ease while being treated.
Root canals get a bad reputation among patients, but many say that getting a root canal is comfortable and feels no different than getting a regular dental filling. During your child’s root canal treatment, Dr. Costello will clean out the damaged material inside the tooth and place a dental crown on top. Root canals are important kids’ dentistry procedures as they:
• Make weak or infected teeth stronger
• Help your child keep their original teeth
• Restore their smile’s healthy appearance
At Kid’s Dental, we make sure that your child’s dental treatment is comfortable and affordable. We accept Medicaid and SoonerCare; we also accept dental insurance and work with you and your coverage provider to ensure that your child gets the friendly, high-quality dental care that they need.
When Does My Child Need a Tooth Extraction?
Our Tulsa kid’s dentist may recommend a tooth extraction in order to make room for their adult teeth. We want your child to have a healthy and beautiful smile as they grow into adulthood, which is we why sometimes recommend extraction of baby teeth.
If your child has a loose baby tooth that will eventually come out on its own, we coach you on the best way to wiggle a tooth out at home. Your children’s dental health is important to us, and we know it’s important to you too – we are committed to giving you good information and care in a kind and friendly environment.
