While your child will not keep their primary teeth forever, it is important that those teeth remain healthy. Your child needs them to eat and speak, and those teeth help guide their permanent teeth when it is time for them erupt. If one of your child’s primary teeth suffers decay and becomes infected, an extraction should be the treatment of last resort. Our dentist can provide a pulpotomy in Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario, to help your child keep that tooth. If your child is showing signs of tooth decay, call to plan a visit with Dr. Abid Hidayat at The Smile Team.
