Daughter suffering from severe tooth pain and a high degree of sensitivity.

Hey, everyone. My child is 16 years old. She has severe tooth pain and a high degree of sensitivity. When I just examined using our clinical torch I found that one of her teeth is decayed. I took here a dentist in Toronto. He told me that my kid should undergo root canal therapy ( https://www.dawsondental.ca/services/root-canal/ )as soon as possible. But my child is just sixteen years old. Is root canal therapy can be done for her? Even though she is sixteen she is feared of the dental clinic and the instruments used over there. How can I make her sit for the root canal therapy? I have heard that there is a need for crowning after root canal therapy! Which kind of crowning will be the best and most durable one?
Is there any discomfort after this treatment? Please share your knowledge!

    maryho7485 that’s a little bit worried. Our child decayed their teeth due to the sweets. They like to eat sweets at night. Then go to bed without doing brush. I will suggest you prepare her mind slowly. When she gets to prepare for clinic things will make easy. As far as the matter of therapy then I think all metal crowns will be best. They are frequently placed on morals.

    For children, on the other hand, a toothache is simply an incessant pain that throbs with no relief in sight. Toothaches occur when erosion or decay penetrates the tooth’s pulp chamber, which contains nerves and minuscule blood vessels that are extremely sensitive. One of the most common reasons for toothache is diet-related, such as drinking too much soda, or eating foods that possess high sugar content, such as candy. If your child is suffering from a toothache, plain warm water (never hot or cold) with a teaspoon of table salt can help relieve the tenderness. They should rinse their mouth out with the salty water whenever they feel pain. A cold pack against the cheek may also reduce painful twinges. However, if over-the-counter pain relievers are ineffective and the ache fails to subside within 24-36 hours, get your child booked into a trusted pediatric dentistry office. Unfortunately, temporary remedies will only provide a stop-gap solution for the pain, and a trip to the dentist will be necessary. If your child has a cracked or chipped tooth, a cap or filling may be necessary, especially if it’s a permanent tooth. A children’s dentistry specialist will be able to do this for you. If an emerging tooth is found to be pushing against an existing tooth, some may have to be removed.

    Because going to the dentist will still be a new experience for your child, helping him understand how dental care can help him treat and resolve pain will go a long way towards defeating anxiety. Talk to your little one about the tools that will be used and what the procedure will be like. We’ll do the same as he sits in our dental chair. Helping your child smile and laugh before his appointment can also diffuse tension and anxiety to create a calmer, more relaxed young patient. Pediatric dental care is an essential service. You want to know that your child’s smile is developing as it should. Our doctors have years of experience and training that can help them monitor the development of your little one’s teeth. If we see anything that raises a red flag, we can put together a treatment plan that will help you meet your child’s personal needs. Your child’s first visit should come around the age of one year old, or whenever he gets his first tooth. Don’t delay your child’s essential care. We’re ready to help you and your family. I had my daughter treated of the same in Bio tex clinic.

    To reduce pain and facial swelling, put ice or a cold pack on the outside of your child's cheek for 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Put a thin cloth between the ice and your child's skin. Do not use heat. If the doctor prescribed antibiotics for your child, give them as directed. Do not stop using them just because your child feels better. Your child needs to take the full course of antibiotics. Give your child anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) to reduce pain and swelling. Be safe with medicines. Read and follow all instructions on the label. Do not give your child very hot, cold, or sweet foods and drinks if they increase pain. Rinse your child's mouth with warm salt water every 2 hours to help relieve pain and swelling. Older children (starting around age 8) can do this by themselves. Mix 5 g (1 teaspoon) of salt in 250 mL (8 fluid ounces) of water. Talk to your dentist about your child using special toothpaste for sensitive teeth. To reduce pain on contact with heat or cold or when brushing, have your child brush with this toothpaste regularly or rub a small amount of the paste on the sensitive area with a clean finger 2 or 3 times a day. Floss gently between your child's teeth. Prompt dental care can help find the cause of your child's toothache and keep the tooth from dying or gum disease from getting worse. Care at home may reduce your child's pain and discomfort.
