Question:
My daughter 6 yearold is suffering from infected tooth sequentially one after the other. We treated root canal every time it get infected. But this disease is continuing to the adjacent tooth every time. Almost 8 are already treated and she is suffering a lot. Every time my pedo dontist assures me of good teeth in future.

Can I be confident of it. What precautions can I take for this? My fear is that there may be any disease due to which this is happening. If so, we can take precautions. Kindly help me in clearing my fear. Will her future tooth be disease free. ...India

Answer:
I'm assuming that every time you have the teeth fixed/treated, you are having pulpotomies (nerve treatments) and stainless steel crowns. This is a baby tooth root canal and should take care of the infection as long as the teeth are not abcessed. (infection that you will see on the gums above the teeth) If the teeth are abcessed, then the teeth need to be removed/extracted.

I would not worry about the permanent teeth being infected since you are taking care of the primary/baby teeth. Rarely do I see permanent teeth being affected from primary teeth. (I've only seen this occur twice) I hope this has helped.
