Hello, a root canal treatment can be done same appointment like in an hour, or it might take multiple appointments. It’s all depends on which tooth it is. Some teeth special the molars have three- four canals vs most anterior/ front teeth have only one canal, and how bad is the infection? Because before we fill the canal and put a stronger filling material, we will like to see no infection and bleeding coming out of the canal. We like to see clean canal/ canals, and sometimes that takes time. I hope this will answer your question.

Hello, I think it’s depending on your kid’s age. Usually by age twelve all primary or baby dentition should fall out. But there are always a variation, some fall out earlier than twelve year others might even be delayed more than twelve years. If the child having pain or not able to chew due to the baby tooth, it will be wise to take him/ her to the dentist to determine the treatment plan. Sometimes the dentist might decide to extract the tooth special if it is loose, imbedded inside the gum and there is sign of infection. Other cases the dentist opt out from doing extract because the primary teeth root is not completely resorbed, there is no mobility and no sign of infection so the tooth can exfoliate by itself which will prevent adjacent teeth from moving, and prevent future crowding
