Re: Okay, Steel crown for baby molar or extraction?
I'm not a pediatric dentist. I am trying to imagine what they consider is important. I can imagine why people might want to do a root canal on a baby tooth.
I can also imagine that the training of such a person is overly technical and is sadly distant from understanding human existence at age 7.
I feel that a root canal is a terrible procedure and can cause terrible damage to the body whether it's done on a 7 yr old or a 70 yr old.
I have had root canal treatments myself and suffered a great deal of harm over the long term from them.
I suggest a nutritional approach and just let the tooth fall out and die if it must. I think the body would reject it if there's a problem.
At worst, I might have it pulled, but if it was my child I would not have a root canal under any circumstances. I would rather a tooth pulled than that.
All the best. Whichever treatment option you decide upon I wish you the best of health and happiness.
