A significant part of our practice at Endodontic Consultants of San Antonio consists of children and adolescents. Children often sustain dental injuries due to falls or sports-related accidents. Dentists from south-central Texas seek the expertise of our specialists to manage their patients with dental injuries. We see patients from Boerne, Eagle Pass, Spring Branch, Laredo, Kerrville, Del Rio, Cuero, Yorktown and Fredericksburg, among others.
The root canals are spaces inside the roots of teeth. They contain nerves, blood vessels, and other tissues. Altogether, these tissues are know as the “dental pulp.” When a tooth is damaged due to conditions such as cracks, deep decay, or traumatic injuries, the pulp may become infected and the structural integrity of the tooth may be compromised. Root canal treatment involves removing damaged tissues and infection, preserving the health of the tooth.
The dental pulp is essential for the healthy growth and development of the tooth. As the tooth matures, the tooth becomes stronger. This healthy process can be disrupted in childhood due to the conditions mentioned above. There are specific protocols that must be followed in children’s teeth to maintain their health and development and allow the roots to develop and become stronger.
As specialists, we are well versed in the latest research and employ the most advanced technologies to increase the odds of successful treatment. We provide a variety of treatments that are often not available at general dentists’ offices. These include:
