Child needs a crown and root canal: Recently my daughter's filling cracked and some of the filling came out. She had the fillings done about a year ago.

I called the dentist to see if they could just fill it again. The dentist told me that she was going to have to have a root canal and a crown after she went in for an x-ray. Is this normal?

It seems very extreme for baby teeth that are going to come out soon. I need some answers. I really don't want to put her through all that if it's not necessary ...Visitor from MI

At this point is appears the dentist is recommending treatment to preserve the integrity of the jawbone and provide optimal opportunity for a normal and healthy eruption of her adult tooth.
